SWEATER WORKSHOP BOOK
With over 30 years of knitting, designing, and teaching experience - Julie Weisenberger has compiled nine new sweater designs into her first book: Cocoknits Sweater Workshop. These new patterns employ the same simple, seamless, top-down styling techniques we've come to expect from Cocoknits.
More than just a collection, this book explains the Cocoknits Method - a system of tracking knitting progress in your own easy to follow customized chart. 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 charting technique 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.
SWEATER WORKSHEET JOURNAL
The Cocoknits Sweater Worksheet is part of a system for knitting seamless, tailored sweaters from the top down, called the Cocoknits Method. Once you fill it in, it allows you to work the shaping of the yoke of any seamless, yoked sweater pattern easily and without referring to written-out instructions. This journal includes 24 worksheets and basic guidelines for using them.
