Knit whatever Cocoknits Method pattern you want, whenever you want, however you want. That's the philosophy behind our newest knit-a-long. It's a "choose your own adventure" of sorts. But the best part? We don't have an end date...and we don't plan on setting one, so you can join over and over again. That's why we're calling this the Cocoknits Method Everlasting KAL.
Read the details below to learn how to sign up, about prizes, and how to make the most of your experience.
How to Sign Up:
Like the rest of this KAL, you have choices on how you sign up.
First decide who you're doing it with:
- Reach out to your LYS and see if they're participating or if they plan to host a KAL soon.
- Start your own KAL group with your closest knitting pals.
- Go solo! Sometimes knitting by yourself on the couch is the best, right?
Then decide how you'll follow along:
- If you're participating with an LYS, they may have their own timeline to follow or they may have you follow along by signing up for our emails.
- Sign up for emails! Our automated KAL emails begin the day you sign up, and will guide you through the KAL over an 8 week period (you can see a breakdown of that timeline below). The emails will offer reminders and motivation to keep up with the project along with tips and tricks for each section.
- Follow along by reading the content below at your own pace.
When you sign up for our emails, you'll receive a coupon code for a free Cocoknits Method pattern of your choice with any tool purchase from our website (note: this doesn't include patterns exclusively sold in the Cocoknits Sweater Workshop). This promotion will be active until December 31st 2023.
In addition to our promotion, we're giving away prizes throughout the year for the KAL. Every 3 months (in the beginning of February, April, July, and October) we will give away a $100 gift card to our website. Enter to win a prize by....
- Sharing your project on Instagram, Facebook, or our Ravelry Forum.
- Every post counts as a separate entry (both work-in-progress and final pictures are considered).
- For Facebook and Instagram, make sure to tag us and use #TheEverlastingKAL to be considered for prizes.
- We encourage you to share progress pictures once you complete each section of the pattern - it doesn't have to be a Finished Object to win!
I Have Project Questions...
If you have questions that you think would be helpful for the whole group, feel free to write a comment at the end of this page. You can also reach out through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Sarah, Depending on the washing instructions for the yarn you used, it seems likely that your daughter will lay it flat to dry, if she does wash it. In that case she can take a moment to pull the rib out to where she likes it. If it is intended to go in the dryer, then she might have to pull it out before it is fully dry and lay it flat, adjusting the ribbing as above. Hope that helps! Congratulations on finishing Toni!
I have just finished knitting the Toni sweater for my daughter. I used a superwash wool since it needs to by easy care for my non-knitting daughter who is a parent to 2 small children. I am concerned how much the ribbing pulls in at the bottom. I can stretch it out when I block it, but if she needs to “wash” it, will the ribbing go back to pulling in?
We’re happy to help. Could you send us an email at email@example.com and let us know as specifically as possible which parts of the directions you need help with?
Never mind! Just figured it out😀
Hi. I am trying to fill out the worksheet for the Mabel. I am knitting the 1X. I have the sleeve increases in and it comes to a total of 42 stitches as it should. However when I add 9 stitches at the armholes on the back (18 stitches) it totals 60 stitches. The pattern says 66 stitches. What am I doing wrong.
Hello! I am doing Molly size Medium. I have done sections 1-3. I am ready to do the worksheet. But the instructions for doing the worksheet is confusing. I am not sure what to put on the worksheet. Thank you for your help
Hi Sharon, We don’t recommend Quinn as a first Cocoknits Method pattern unless you are experienced with cables and an adventurous knitter. We’re happy to answer any questions you have, but nothing can replace in-person help from your LYS. Good luck with the KAL!
Hullo I joined with a LYS Be inspired. I want to do Quinn. Will there be help if I choose Quinn. I have the pattern and have signed up for emails just now. Your help will be much appreciated. I’m looking for the honeycomb stitch instructions. Can I use any honeycomb tutorial on YouTube. Thank yiu
Hi Martine, There is no cost to join the KAL! You will probably end up purchasing the book and maybe a pattern and you’ll need yarn :) But the emails and customer support for the KAL are free. Hope you can join us.
hello, I should like to participate, but I see nowhere what price it costs ? Can you inform me about this ? Thank you very much
Hi Leslie, Once you have knit a swatch and decided what gauge you like, you can modify the pattern to work with that gauge. Julie explains how in our website article “How to Modify Gauge” and in a video she made for the Toni KAL, which you can find in the resources on our KAL page. You may find that Molly’s gauge (in Cocoknits Sweater Workshop) is close to the gauge you want, and you can use those numbers to help you modify your Mabel. Keep an eye out for more videos in the resources for the KAL.
Thanks for joining us!
Looking forward to a new way to knit a sweater!!
I am going to be knitting Mabel with Hands On Knitting Center.
I don’t want to use bulky yarn, how do I figure out what size to make using worsted or DK?
Hi Karen, Time to swatch! Your yarn is listed as having a gauge between 4 and 5 sts to the inch / 2.5 cm, so, if you like it knitted at 4.5 sts/in, you won’t need to do any adjusting of the pattern. In that case, you can expect to need 1825 yds of yarn, as stated in the pattern on p. 97. Hope that helps!
Hi, I want to do Molly out of the workbook. I have silky wool Aran. Number 4 yarn. I want to do a size 3×. How much yarn do I need and what size needle.
Hi Anne, On the day you signed up, you should have received an email for Week 1: Prep Week, that will guide you through choosing yarn and swatching, to be ready to start knitting at the beginning of Week 2. If you didn’t receive the Week 1 email, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
I guess I am a bit confused. I bought the Coco knits book and the worksheets. I just signed up for the emails. Am I good to go? What are the next steps. I have picked Emma Version B from the Sweater Workshop book.
Thank you for your interest in joining our eKAL; we’d love to have you join us! We will be in touch with you and send further information.
Hello, myname is Daniela Körner and I am the owner of h LYS “wollkorb” in Pfullingen, Germany. with ten clients I want to participate at the Everlasting KAL.
This will be my 4th Cocoknits Method sweater and I am going to knit Mabel with Mountain Meadow Sheridan. Hoping that joining the KAL will keep me motivated to finish sooner as I tend to get side tracked and start new projects without finishing my other WIPs.
Hi Deni, Please email us at email@example.com so we can look into your order and figure out how to resolve this. Welcome to the KAL!
Hi Jesse, So glad Paradise Fibers is joining the KAL! Please contact our Wholesale Director for your code and any other information you need.
I cannot get the promo coupon to work. i have tried it 3 times. I did put a purchase of the flight of stitch markers in the shopping cart. I am hoping the coupon will work for the Mable sweater pattern.I have every tool you sell with the exception of this one. i love the tools.
Hi there! How do we get the pattern for customers that are joining the KAL in person with us? (LYS)
