Protect yourself from the elements from chin to finger tips, proving that you can be styling and cozy at the same time. An elegant cable panel and flattering shaping complement the generous cowl neck and extra-long sleeves.

Julie’s Sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up. Set-in sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked down to the cuff, using short rows to form a sleeve cap. A cowl collar is picked up from the top edge and optional thumbholes are worked in the extra long sleeves.

This pattern includes both written instructions and charts.
