Cocoknits Method Complete 8 week series Spring 2024

Suitable for adventurous beginners with a few projects under their belts to expert knitters.

These classes will be offered as a complete series or a la carte so if you only need help with certain techniques, you may take just the classes you need. This class is the entire 8 week series as one package. If you want only individual classes, please see the individual week classes. They are the same class! We are just offering two different ways to signup and pay.

To participate in the KAL through Yarn Refuge simply purchase one Cocoknits tool from us and let us know you will be joining in. In turn, we will give you a coupon code for the purchase of one free Cocoknits pattern through Ravelry. The patterns from the book are not available for purchase with the code but you may use it for a pattern to knit in the future. Code will be valid for 6 months.
