Sincerely Jules

Happy Tuesday everyone! Well, I love turtle necks - just the name is brilliant. And there are in fashion this winter, but shouldn't they always be in fashion when it gets really cold (or that just too practical of me?). I love how Sincerely Jules styled hers (I may also want her bag, and shoes, but that is another discussion). And since seeing this picture, I have been researching knitting patterns. 

I have to tell you, I have a favourite - Beaubourg by Julie Hoover.If you were looking for more texture, you might be interested in another pattern by Birch Bay.  I love the collar of Lanvad (and it is knitted in one of my favourite yarn). If you are looking for oversized Chaleur might be for you (I may have 3 Julie Hoover's designs, it is only coincidence). Flet - a bit more tailored - looks great too (and based on Ravelry's pics, it seems to look great on everyone too. The plain and simple pullover by Veera Välimäki is a free pattern worth considering too. I am not a fan, but I think this free pattern does provide a good basis to make your own turtle neck jumper. 

So what is your pick? Which colour would you go for?


  1. Turtlenecks are wonderful! That was one thing that was so great about moving from Florida to Colorado. You never get to wear the lovely clothes of winter in Florida.

  2. I love that soft grey - just gorgeous!

  3. I love the soft grey and the handbag! There is something so warm and comforting about an oversized turtle neck in the winter.

  4. I have Chaleur already faved but added Flet. Love that stitch pattern accents.

  5. I love turtlenecks too, (but, confession, am too lazy to knit them. XD) But after looking at those patterns you've linked, I really want one in my life now.
