With over 30 years of knitting, designing, and teaching experience – Julie Weisenberger presents her first book: Cocoknits Sweater Workshop which includes nine new designs. The book expands on the simple, seamless, top-down styling we’ve come to expect from Cocoknits.
More than just a collection, however, this book explains the Cocoknits Method – a system of tracking knitting progress in your own easy to follow customized worksheet. Unlike most traditional patterns that create flat shapes, the tailored style of construction in these patterns creates truly three dimensional garments that impart a great fit upon completion.
The innovative color-coded Cocoknits Sweater Worksheet shows exactly where to work shaping elements without having to continually read and interpret pattern abbreviations, and at the same time allows the knitter complete control over customization to achieve a fantastic fit.
All designs are worked from the neckline down, so once the neck and yoke area are established, the knitter can just cruise through generating the sweater and not worry about counting or losing track of their place in the pattern. Another advantage of knitting top-down is the ability to try on your garment as you work, to ensure the fit is right.
In addition to all new patterns, Julie has dedicated a section of the book to an in-depth guide to choosing the right patterns for your figure type with considerations for colorwork, textured stitches, and hemlines all working in concert to create the right silhouette for you.
Your book purchase from cocoknits.com includes a complimentary pdf download of the book for you to enjoy while awaiting the arrival of your hard copy book.
*PDF is included ONLY when the book is purchased from cocoknits.com.*
The designs pictured in this section of the book will be available as individual PDF downloads beginning in April 2017. Knitters should be familiar with the Cocoknits Method before knitting these sweaters. All of the page numbers in the patterns refer to pages in the book, where the techniques are explained in detail. In the meantime, we hope you'll familiarize yourself with the Cocoknits Method by knitting one of the nine core patterns before starting the more advanced patterns.
