Designer Feature: June by Julie Weisenberger (Cocoknits)

At Kelbourne Woolens, post-TNNA is a time to catch up on design premieres we missed while preparing for the trade show. The most recent of these premieres is June by Julie Weisneberger of Cocoknits—her booth was next to ours at TNNA and we got to host (and wear) the gorgeous sample throughout the show!

Julie says, “June is as comfortable and effortless as a T-shirt, but with an elevated bubble-sleeved silhouette. It has a relaxed fit but plenty of shaping to keep it flattering. Because it’s worked from the top down, you can easily play with the length.”

The top is made using Julie’s “Cocoknits Method” making it a breeze for relaxed summer knitting and has two Kelbourne-y yarn recommendations: our Mojave and BC Garn Bio Balance.

We see this sweet tee as a casual beachside top, a chilly office layers, and a cool pairing with your favorite linen skirt or shorts. Julie has a knack for casual elegance and we are delighted she chose two of our favorite yarns for her new design.

June is now in the queue and we have to decide on Mojave or BC Garn Bio Balance. Which one? Do you want to join us in a summer June KAL? Share your projects with us on Instagram—tag us @kelbournewoolens and use the hashtags #JuneKAL and #cocoknits.

Find all the colors of Mojave here and Bio Balance here to select your colors today. We’ll be pondering our colors, too!

Happy June knitting in July!
