Julie Hoover’s Gibson is for everyday pleasure, casual but special, classic but a bit offbeat, too.

Julie’s original Gibson is knit in undyed Sweetgrass with a few well-placed stripes. It’s totally beautiful, but we thought, what about a big splash of color? What about Linen Quill and its choice of 55 gorgeous colors?! Okay!

We followed the pattern just how it’s written, except omitted the stripes, opting instead for a solid swath of beautiful color. We chose Red Poppy, a warm burst of happiness, just like the one we’re feeling for spring!
