Julie Hoover


Julie Hoover’s Kaplan makes the most of subtle details. Gently flared cuffs, waist shaping, and a tailored collar create a modern and feminine silhouette. Two weights of yarn are held throughout, and the hem and sleeve cuff alternate yarns to create a sheer stripe pattern. Julie considers the Kaplan a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty.
