Cocoknits - Knitting Tools and Accessories

Cocoknits UK

The Cocoknits founder, Julie Weisenberger, first started knitting whilst at college in Austria and has been knitting and designing ever since. Cocoknits was founded in 2007 and over the years has developed and perfected a unique top-down, seamless method of sweater knitting called the Cocoknits Method. Cocoknits has created a range of tools that make the process of knitting and making easier and more beautiful. We have been a Cocoknits UK Stockist for many years and stock many items in the Cocoknits range.

The Cocoknits Method

Cocoknits signature system, as taught in the Cocoknits Sweater Workshop, has been developed and refined over years of knitting, designing, and teaching thousands to knit. Cocoknits has created a visual way to track knitting progress by customising a colour-coded Worksheet that guides you through the creation of a complete sweater.

Cocoknits Method - Steps

This method uses top-down knitting that incorporates increases at specific intervals to create truly 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 turns out too boxy.

  1. Stitches are cast on for the back neck and increases worked to create the upper back.
  2. Stitches are picked up from the sides of the upper back to create the right and left shoulders.
  3. Stitches are worked across left shoulder, picked up to create left sleeve, worked across back, picked up to create right sleeve, and worked across right shoulder. This is also where you will place Colour Stitch Markers to delineate each part of the sweater yoke.
  4. The rest of the yoke is worked following your customised colour-coded Cocoknits Worksheet. Your Worksheet will tell you where the shaping happens in relation to the markers (before or after). Then you cruise along with knitting and don’t have to count or read abbreviations as you knit.
  5. Once the yoke is complete, the body and sleeves of your garment are worked seamlessly down to the hem and cuffs. It’s easy to try on your sweater as you work and adjust, if necessary. Then all you have to do is sew up the underarm, and your sweater is ready to wear! Another advantage to my method is when you’ve completed your sweater, you’ll have a customised pattern to work again in a different yarn or colourway with all the shaping in the right places for you.
