Cocoknits Sweater Workshop (in person)

In this 2-session workshop you’ll learn the Cocoknits method for sweater construction while making the Emma sweater.  Students will have the option to knit Version A, B or C.  This popular design construction can be the launchpad for a variety of styles of Cocoknits sweaters in a variety of yarn weights - the sky is the limit! 

What makes the Cocoknits Method special?

~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
~A system of tracking knitting progress in your own easy to follow customized worksheet
~Sizes range from Small to 3XL.
~Top down sweater construction.

This two-session workshop is for advanced beginners (or up) and is well suited for those wanting to knit their first sweater or those with sweater experience who want to learn a different sweater construction method. The book also provides 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.
