Julie Hoover - Sidwell

/ paper pattern

Product Description

For those connoisseurs out there, Julie Hoover makes her patterns available in a beautiful printed format! Each pattern is printed on handsome Topkote 111# stock paper on a traditional four color process offset printer, and packaged in a clear plastic self-adhesive protective cover. This is for a paper, hardcopy format of the pattern, which will be mailed to you.  It is not for a .pdf download.  


Featuring a mirrored diagonal rib pattern, Sidwell can be worn with stitches running up and down (seam at shoulders) or turned sideways (seam at center front/back), making it the ultimate accessory for stying and versatility. This poncho is knitted from the bottom-up in two identical pieces, then joined together and finished with a simple rolled neckband.
