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.
Much more than just a pattern collection, 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 don't require seaming!
The innovative colour-coded Cocoknits Sweater Worksheet template 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. The Cocoknits Colored Ring, Mini Colored Ring, and Colored Opening Stitch Markers aren't rainbow just to be cute; the colours coordinate with the coloured lines on your worksheet!
An excellent complement to this book is the Cocoknits Sweater Worksheet Journal, a booklet containing 24 blank Worksheets, which becomes a diary of your sweater-knitting history. All the information - from date begun and finished, yarns used, gauge, pattern source - is recorded in its pages for future reference.
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 colourwork, textured stitches, and hemlines all working in concert to create the right silhouette for you.
