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 in our Yarn Store.
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.
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.
Our company is located in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Our ethos is defined in the three words, NATURAL TRADITIONAL HANDMADE.
We are a proud supporter of the Campaign for Wool, All Things Wales, Global Welsh and Red Dragon America.
