  • Join us for the 2024 Cocoknits KAL!!

    Although Julie will be knitting "Ruth" this year, we have opted for gorgeous Jesse - inspired by the classic Irish fisherman's sweater and using the Cocoknits Method! 

    We love the cables, which are worked all over and the cozy ribbed shawl collar that's infinitely flattering. A fun and challenging knit for cozy winter evenings, Jesse is a stunning sweater that will bring you joy (and compliments) for years to come. Click here to see Julie modelling it.

    Jesse is written in 9 sizes from 33 to 64” bust, so you should have lots of options for fit, as well!

    Check out our Instagram Live  where we go over yarn choices and chat with Julie about the pattern. We have lots and lots of dk-worsted weight yarns to choose from. 

    And - as always, we'll cover how to personalise and embellish your creation, if you fancy! (Remember Eurus?)

    This is the perfect opportunity to learn the Cocoknits Method. 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.
