Julie Hoover + Shibui Knits, Winter 2020.

Designer Julie Hoover has collaborated on something special with Shibui this season – a pattern collection and three special colorways which we are thrilled to have on our shelves now!

Hoover’s three shades are Glacier, Vintage Rose, and Black Plum, an icy pale blue, a pink, and a deep purple. They fit beautifully in Shibui’s existing color palate, but represent distinctly new additions.

These three shades are available in five Shibui yarns: the lace weight Pebble, Silk Cloud, and Tweed Silk Cloud, sport weight Twig, and DK weight Nest.

Julie Hoover has made beautiful use of these yarns in this Winter 2020 collection, combining them to make unique fiber blends and sumptuous textures. She’s brought her signature attention to detail to each one, offering options for customizing many of them.

“Wells” is a cowl that comes in two lengths, for example, and the “Layton” pullover has optional cuffs.

“Blume” is perhaps the most customizable – this sweater comes in a sleeveless style as well as long sleeved, and can be made with Twig alone for a summery feel, or with Twig and Silk Cloud together for more warmth.

We have sample copies of all five patterns available for your perusal; you can purchase any of them on Ravelry. Come by to see these tempting yarns and patterns for yourself!
