Meet your new favorite designer, Julie Hoover.

Merging her talent & passion for textiles into knitwear design, Julie has created an incredible collection of patterns designed with a clean, simple aesthetic in mind. Her designs are fashion forward, yet classic & relaxed. So, pretty much perfect! Be inspired by more Julie Hoover patterns with our new feature page.

The Ronin is a cool, relaxed cardigan that can be worn year round. Ronin is knit in pieces, from the bottom up in clean, classic stockinette stitch. Designed with comfort & quality in mind, the piece features Shibui Fern, a soft, 100% Organic cotton with a gorgeous natural palette. To give the piece that wow-factor, Shibui Silk Cloud is held with the Fern on the stripes. Silk Cloud is a luxe blend of silk & mohair that adds a subtle, glowy halo.

*Tip- Shibui Cima is a great substitute for those with mohair sensitivity.
