Before we begin, we want to talk more about our Cocoknits Method patterns, because we believe they will be most helpful to the beginner knitter...
Each Cocoknits Method pattern breaks the sweater into sections with our color-coordinated Stitch Markers. By using these markers you can clearly see which part of the sweater you're working on. This will help you begin to understand the construction of the sweater while you work on it. The stitch markers also coordinate with the Cocoknits Sweater Worksheet, a grid that allows you to track your progress and breaks your sweater up into manageable chunks.
We understand that it could feel like a lot of information to process when you're a beginner, and that's okay! With our method of knitting, we give you a lot of tools upfront to set you up for success later during the making process. We promise it will start to make more sense as you get started and begin knitting. For the easiest introduction to this style we recommend purchasing our Cocoknits Sweater Workshop. It clearly lays out the process in an easy-to-understand way, and includes 8 patterns exclusively available with the book.
Since I was small, I always saw my grandmother knitting, and I was amazed whenever she showed me her finished product, like my favorite cloche-type hat. I feel special when she knits it for me, so I plan to return the favor and make a sweater out of yarn for her since it is still my school break here in West Yorkshire. Thank you for sharing in your article the steps to knit correctly and picking good knitting material for my sweater because its design is time-consuming. I have seen a thick, worsted yarn perfect for my design in mind, so I am planning to buy it as soon as possible and start working on the sweater after I buy the yarn. https://www.habiknit.co.uk/collections/knitting-supplies https://www.habiknit.co.uk/collections/knitting-supplies
Hi Pam, Julie’s events and classes are listed here on the website. Choose Local Shops and Events under Discover at the top of the screen, then scroll down to events. We’ll hope to see you at a virtual class soon!
I just read a post about doing virtual classes with you. Where are they advertised, and when will more be available?
I just finished a virtual class with you and I’m so happy I did. Even though I did a sweater in the book, seeing is better as I’m a visual learner…I plan on doing more classes or a knit along if you have them, I think that would solidify my understanding.
I like them all
