Julie's first Summer 2018 Sweater Club sold out soon after its release this month, but if you missed your opportunity to join you have another chance! Julie will be bringing her club to Spun for one weekend, and we'll kick things off with a happy hour July 6 at 4pm.
Club membership is $30, includes both patterns (both of which is knit in Shibui Fern and Silk Cloud), and requires that yarn for one or both of the patterns be purchased at Spun. As always, Julie's Sweater Club is an exclusive offer: Only Sweater Club members will enjoy access to these patterns, and access is limited to just five shops around the country.
See details on the patterns below. Spun has just ten memberships available. Starting Friday, July 6, at 4pm they may be purchased at the shop or over the phone (734.780.7867) for pickup or to be shipped.
A simple boxy pullover with a few thoughtful details, Solis is the summer sweater you will reach for time after time. The pattern is written for Fern held single or Fern and Silk Cloud held double (shown above), depending on the fabric you wish you create. The front and back pieces are worked from the bottom up, and the sleeves are picked up across the armholes so you can easily adjust the length to suit your personal taste.

Nothing says summer more than a breezy shawl collar cardigan with a few wow-factor stripes. Ronin is worked in pieces from the bottom up in minimal stockinette fabric with beautiful shaping details. The main fabric is Fern held single, but the stripes are worked with Fern and Silk Cloud held double for a subtle change in texture and little extra luxury.
