With more than 30 years' of knitting, designing and teaching experience, Julie Weisenberger presents her first book: Cocoknits Sweater Workshop, which includes nine new designs.
More than just a collection, however, this book explains the Cocoknits Method – a system of tracking knitting progress in your own easy-to-follow customised worksheet. Unlike most traditional patterns that create flat shapes, the tailored style of construction in these patterns creates truly three-dimensional garments that impart a great fit upon completion.
The innovative colour-coded Cocoknits Worksheet shows exactly where to work shaping elements without having to continually read and interpret pattern abbreviations, and, at the same time, allows the knitter complete control over customisation to achieve a fantastic fit.
All the designs are worked from the neckline down, so once the neck and yoke area are established, the knitter can just cruise through generating the sweater and not worry about counting or losing track of their place in the pattern. Another advantage of knitting top-down is the ability to try on your garment as you work, to ensure the fit is right.
In addition to all new patterns, Julie has included an in-depth guide to choosing the right patterns for your figure type with considerations for colourwork, textured stitches and hemlines all working together to create the right silhouette for you.
