In this 3-part workshop, there is time for Julie Weisenberger to guide you through the Cocoknits Method of sweater knitting, outlined in her book Cocoknits Sweater Workshop.
In the first two sessions we will cover the four sections of the Cocoknits Method, including instruction on how to use the Cocoknits Method Worksheet in coordination with colored stitch markers. A pattern for a baby sweater will be provided, which students may consider a practice swatch, or work to completion on their own during the week. Once students understand the method, they may also want to start an adult sweater pattern from the book during the week. We will wrap up in the last session, answering any questions and talking more about customizing fit!
