Karen Baumer grew up listening to classical music, but as an adult she came to appreciate popular music, especially the work of Bob Dylan. The title of this sweater refers to the pivotal moment at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965 when he "went electric." For Karen, the wavy ribs represent the vibration of electric guitar strings, as well as the shock waves that ensued when Dylan broke with acoustic tradition and plugged in his guitar. The back, front, and sleeves are knitted separately. The simple funnel neck makes for a classic, comfy shape that is sure to bring rave reviews.
