This comprehensive workshop is designed to take the knitter through all the steps of producing a sweater with the Cocoknits Method of construction. Most of the sweaters in the book use the same method, and many other patterns are available that can utilize the skills and techniques learned.
Sweaters are seamlessly knit top down using a combination of flat and circular knitting. When the garment is finished, the only seaming is closing up the underarm gap. Construction begins at the back neckline and forms tailored shoulders and sleeves after picking up some stitches.
Instruction will include: full explanation of the Cocoknits Method, choosing the correct sweater size, utilizing the Cocoknits Sweater Worksheet (provided in the book) to ensure ease in knitting and shaping of the yoke without referring to written instructions, and full finishing techniques for your sweater.
