Cocoknits Sweater Workshop August



This 14-hour class will lead you step by step through making a top-down, seamless, tailored sweater using the Cocoknits Method developed by Julie Weisenberger. Using this ingenous method you will successfully create a sweater with beautiful fit and finish using almost any yarn.

During the first class we will go over fit, color and gauge. Then each student will be aided in selecting a Cocoknits pattern that suits their body, style, and skill level. And finally, with the above information we can then select suitable yarn for your sweater. (Note: If you yarn needs to be ordered we will also select a "practice" yarn so we can begin learning. In fact a practice yarn for use in class is recommended, then practice what you learned in class at home on your "good" yarn.

Class schedule:

8/14 – Pre-project prep, selecting pattern, yarn, fit & gauge

8/21 – Start project (Sections 1, & 2) (with practice yarn if needed)
