According to Webster, a rhapsody is a "musical composition . . . having an improvisatory character." In her Aran-inspired, textured pullover, Kathy Zimmerman has combined wide and narrow open cables with mini-cable ribs, playing them in a rhythmic pattern against a reverse stockinette-stitch background. The rustic tweed yarn adds a grainy undertone to the mix.
