Please confirm that you're picking a Cocoknits Method pattern. Not all of our sweaters are Cocoknits Method. There will be a note on the pattern page that says "This is a Cocoknits Method pattern" if it is one. You can also browse them all here.
If this is your first time knitting with The Cocoknits Method, don't worry! Everything you need to know you'll find in the Cocoknits Sweater Workshop. This book provides clear instruction so that learning this method will be easy and fun whether you're a beginner or experienced knitter. If you are on the beginner side of things and feel too intimidated by cast on we recommend starting with the Emma pattern (any version will do).
Some patterns may say that they use a "modified Cocoknits Method." (If you're knitting in the Everlasting KAL, you can still join with these patterns.) Here's a list of modified Cocoknits Method patterns and how you would follow along differently.
- Cleo: follow along normally, just skip the sleeves.
- Juniper: follow along normally, just skip content about the Cocoknits Method Worksheet (it's not used or needed for this pattern).
- Renee: follow along normally, just skip content about the Cocoknits Method Worksheet (it's not used or needed for this pattern).
- Sarah: everything is the same except it has an alternative worksheet that comes with the pattern that you'll use for the yoke, rather than the Cocoknits Method Worksheet.
- Nine Patch: follow along normally, just skip content about the Cocoknits Method Worksheet (it's not used or needed for this pattern).
- Quinn: follow along normally, just skip content about the Cocoknits Method Worksheet (it's not used or needed for this pattern).
Hi Yvonne, Tribe Yarns in London is knitting along with us. They have lots of information on their website, tribeyarns.com, along with a list of suggested yarns. A few of those suggestions are: Eco Soft and Alpaca 3 by Isager, Manchelopi by Wooldreamers, and Beatrix by Juniper Moon. Enjoy your yarn search!
Hi Karen, Julie doesn’t usually like to recommend ease because it is such an individual choice. We don’t ask our models their bust measurements, but we noticed that the Mabel model is small—maybe 32-34” and she is wearing a size Large (44” bust) so there is approximately 10-12” of ease.
In regard to both sweaters, the best idea is to base the size you knit on a garment that you like the fit of. You can even measure different parts of different favorite garments. Hope that helps!
Hi, I’m in the UK and Bread and Butter Bun isn’t available here. Can you suggest another yarn please?
What is the recommended ease for Mabel? For Toni?
Hi Kathleen, Please check the pattern page for the sweater you are interested in here on our website. You will see several different models and information on the yarn they were knitted in. If you don’t find a yarn that works for you there, you can also look at the pattern page on Ravelry and click on “yarn ideas” along the top or “projects” on the right to see what other yarns people have knit it in. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more questions. Happy knitting!
Hi – I have purchased your book from my LYS – the yarn used for Classic Elite Yarns – this is not available. Do you have a sub list for your publication?
Please email us at email@example.com with specific pattern questions. Erik is not Cocoknits Method; it is one of Julie’s earlier patterns.
I’m attempting to start the Erik Sweater for my son. Can I get some visual directions on how to start the hood.
Thanks in advance
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number. Thanks!
