4 Part class meeting February 22, 29, March 7, 14 10am-12pm
Julie Weisenberger developed and perfected a unique top-down, seamless method of sweater-knitting, which she calls the Cocoknits Method.
We’ll be knitting one of the 3 versions of the Emma sweater.
You will choose which version is the one for you at the 1st class.
PREREQUISITES: you must have basic skills: knit, purl, increasing, decreasing
SIZES: Small (Medium, Large, 1X, 2X, 3X)
Sweaters are knit seamlessly from top down with set-in sleeves and well tailored shoulders.
Cocoknits method starts by casting on at back neck, picking up to create shoulders and sleeve caps, then working fronts, sleeves and back simultaneously.
Using cocoknits worksheet makes the knitting easy and intuitive.
