Join us for the Rhinebeck Sweater KAL!

What could be better than knitting a sweater? Knitting a sweater with a designer and other knitters. We are back with another Rhinebeck Sweater KAL, and we can’t wait to show off our projects in person this year. Plus, there are new sweater designs, great giveaway prizes and two virtual meetings a week. Whether you're an accomplished sweater knitter or are a newbie, this is a great way to learn about sweaters and challenge yourself with a fun group of knitting friends!

We'll be using Ravelry forums as well as Zoom video meetings to chat and show off our in-progress projects. Register today for $12 and get a Knitspot sweater design for FREE and the chance to win one of the giveaways below. Pattern discount codes will start going out on August 2, 2021.

Grand Prize: $100 BNW Gift Certificate + 1 FREE Knitspot Pattern

  • Tag @barenakedwools and/or @knitspot on IG or FB and use the hashtags below
  • Working on a Rhinebeck Sweater KAL, we want to see your projects! Use the hashtag #RhinebeckSweaterKAL

  • Using Bare Naked Wools yarn? Post your in-progress and/or finished project on social media (Instagram or Facebook) with the hashtag #barenakedwools


Knitting a sweater with little rules is a fun way to break out of your knitting comfort zone and try out new techniques, new fibers, and new sizes! Participants just need to use a Knitspot sweater pattern OR a Bare Naked Wools yarn to knit their project to participate. Whether you're knitting for yourself or someone else, you can also choose to use both our yarn and our patterns — the choice is completely up to you!


While prizes are awarded to projects started and finished during the KAL timeframe, we welcome those with projects-in-progress to join us too!
