Cocoknits Sweater Workshop – February 9th, March 9th + April 13th

February 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

Instructor: Julie Weisenberger of Cocoknits

This three-week intensive will allow you the time and motivation to complete a knitted sweater.

Cocoknits patterns are stylish and can be knit in a huge array of yarn. They are perfect for everyone; from the beginning knitter who knows how to knit and purl, to the advanced knitter, who is working towards a wardrobe of elegant, hand-knit clothing.

We are in the unbelievably, lucky position to have Julie Weisenberger, owner and master knitter of Cocoknits, live here in town! As you can imagine, she knows her patterns inside and out and can help you with sizing, fit, yarn choice, and all other questions pertaining to her wide collection of patterns.

Julie is:

extremely well-versed upon the subject of yarn and the knitted fabric. She can guide you through choosing yarn, and teach you how the knitted fabric will respond to her designs.

a great teacher. She will teach you pertinent techniques and help you gain the skills to tackle your next project or finish the one you’re working on now.

The class meets over 3 months so you have time to knit in between classes and (hopefully) have a completed sweater by the end! In many instances of students knitting two sweaters in the 3 week period!

Prerequisite: Students should be advanced beginners…however, it CAN be your first sweater. We recommend the morning class if you’ve never knit a sweater using the Cocoknits method, and the afternoon class if you have before.
