Julie Hoover Trunk Show Spotlight: Cohle

Cohle is a relaxed take on a traditional turtleneck.  We love the dramatic collar, slightly swingy cut and a flattering high-low hem.

The front and back pieces are shaped with a curved (exposed) side seam for a little extra sophistication.  Knitting Pebble doubled gives it an even tweedier and squishy appearance.
