Cocoknits Sweater Workshop

This workshop features Julie Weisenberger’s renowned method of top-down set-in sleeve sweater construction, yielding what we consider to be the perfect fit for all body types. This innovative method focuses on knitting a well-fitting sweater in a step-by-step way, with clear instructions and examples at each step. We will even be joined by “virtual Julie” at times thanks to her helpful video series. All students will knit the same sweater pattern (Emma Version A, B, or C from the Cocoknits Sweater Workshop book) in their choice of yarn. The class will be taught over two sessions, allowing time to practice techniques and work on the sweater between classes. Early sign-up is suggested as there are a limited number of seats available for the class.
