Stella is a basic scoop neck cardigan knitted almost seamlessly. The bottom is knit with two strands of Habu’s stainless held together, the top is one strand of stainless with one strand cotton gima. The fun part of the stainless is that you can manipulate the fabric but the pattern would translate perfectly to other sport or dk weight yarns.
While studying German in Salzburg, Austria, Julie Weisenberger learned to knit at a shop close to the Abbey where scenes from “The Sound of Music” were filmed. She always suspected the women in the knitting shop moonlighted as extras in the movie; they resembled each other in so many ways. She enjoys saying she was taught by knitting nuns… even if they weren’t, really.
By the time Julie returned to the United States, she was obsessed with knitting and design and soon found herself managing a small cottage industry. She had knitters in Ireland using English yarn and her original creations were being sold at Nordstrom, Henri Bendel, Mark Shale, and a number of small boutiques across the country. Her main focus, however, was on teaching knitting and designing for knitters via knitting magazines and yarn company publications.
After an 8-year hiatus to care for her children she began teaching classes at Article Pract, a yarn shop in Oakland, California. She couldn’t teach and not design, so by 2006 she was designing again and in 2007 launched cocoknits.com to sell her patterns.
Her aim is to reach creative knitters who want a finished product that says something unique about their personality. Each pattern is meant not as a rigid template but as a guide, a jumping-off point from which you can determine your own style through choice of texture, color, shape, and embellishments.
