This two-session Cocoknits Method Sweater Workshop taught by Jennifer Hallan will guide you through the Cocoknits Method. This workshop is designed for people who have never knit a Cocoknits Sweater.

What is the Cocoknits Method?
The Cocoknits Method was developed by Julie Weisenberger. It is a top-down knitting method that incorporates increases at specific intervals to create 3 dimensional shaping that doesn’t require seaming when you’re done. The neck, shoulders, and yoke are created together, so the shaping is softly sloped to hug the body in a flattering way, rather than squared pieces sewn together which turn out too boxy.
Who should try the Cocoknits Method?
If you've successfully knit a sweater, but have felt like it never fits you the way you want it to, you should definitely try the Cocoknits Method!
Is there math involved?
Unfortunately, yes. The Cocoknits Method uses a worksheet to help build your own customized pattern. But the good news is that the instructor loves math and can help you fill out your worksheet! You can then use your Cocoknits Worksheet to plan any other seamless yoked sweater patterns to make in other colorways and yarns.
Who is Julie Weisenberger?
Julie learned to knit in Europe and ran a small sweater company that sold to boutiques
across the United States. Now her main focus is on designing for hand-knitters of all
shapes and sizes using many of the techniques she learned in Europe and the
Julie has perfected the top-down, seamless method using English tailoring, which
creates a flattering and perfectly fitted set-in sleeve sweater. Her simple silhouettes
combined with fine yarns result in elegant, wearable designs for knitters of all abilities.
In addition to designing, she develops knitting tools based on real-life
experience—designed for knitters by a knitter.
