Cocoknits Sweater Workshop – 4 session class @ Magpie Knits (1/4)
January 27 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Whether you’re advanced or looking to learn — join us at Magpie Knits!
The Cocoknits Method was developed by Julie Weisenberger and uses top-down knitting that incorporates increases at specific intervals to create truly 3 dimensional shaping that doesn’t require seaming when you’re done. The neck, shoulders, and yoke are created together, so the shaping is softly sloped to hug the body in a flattering way.
The yoke is worked following a customized color-coded Cocoknits Worksheet. Your Worksheet tells you where the shaping happens in relation to the markers (before or after). Then you cruise along with knitting and don’t have to count or read abbreviations as you knit.
Once the yoke is complete, the body and sleeves are worked seamlessly down to the hem and cuffs. It’s easy to try on your sweater as you work and adjust, if necessary. Then all you have to do is sew up the underarm, and your sweater is ready to wear! When you’ve completed your sweater, you’ll have a customized pattern to work again in a different yarn or colorway with all the shaping in the right places for you.
Experience: Students should be comfortable casting on and binding off, knitting and purling in the round, picking up stitches and doing basic increases and decreases.v
