With more than 30 years of knitting, designing, and teaching experience – Julie Weisenberger presents her first book: Cocoknits Sweater Workshop which includes eight fabulous 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 customised worksheet. Unlike most traditional patterns that create flat shapes, the tailored style of construction in these patterns creates truly wonderful three dimensional garments.
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 - nobody likes completing a garment to find out that it doesn't fit!
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 together to create the right silhouette for you.
We also stock the Sweater Worksheet journal which is the perfect resource to use with this book.
