Cocoknits Sweater Workshop by Julie Weisenberger
Julie Weisenberger’s (Cocoknits) beautiful new book – Sweater Workshop – has just landed in store and we are swooning! Gorgeous, tailored, top-down sweater designs in a variety of flattering silhouettes. More projects just landed in our queues!
From the Cocoknits website:
With over 30 years of knitting, designing, and teaching experience ? Julie Weisenberger has compiled nine new sweater designs into her first book: Cocoknits Sweater Workshop. These new patterns employ the same simple, seamless, top-down styling techniques we?ve come to expect from Cocoknits.
More than just a collection, this book explains the Cocoknits Method ? a system of tracking knitting progress in your own easy to follow customized chart. 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 color-coded charting technique 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 customization to achieve a fantastic fit. All 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 dedicated a section of the book to an in-depth guide to choosing the right patterns for your figure type with considerations for colorwork, textured stitches, and hemlines all working in concert to create the right silhouette for you.
