Join us on Thursdays at 4pm starting February 17 for the Cocoknits Method Everlasting KAL!
The KAL will last 8 weeks with lots of support from Julie through emails and videos. Here in the shop we are choosing to knit Toni but you may choose any sweater that uses the Cocoknits Method.
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.
We highly recommend purchasing the Cocoknits Sweater Workshop book and Cocoknits colored stitch markers. More tool recommendations will be suggested for each week.
You may join in the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #TheEverlasting KAL.
For those new to the method or like structured, hands on learning we are holding Cocoknit Method classes to coincide with the subject for each week of the KAL. These classes will be offered a la carte so if you only need help with certain techniques, you may take just the classes you need.
