  • Join us for the 2023 Cocoknits KAL!!

    Year 4's official Cocoknits KAL pattern MABEL - a loose-fitting, comfortable pullover that fits the bill. The pattern is also infinitely adaptable (and we are famous for our adaptations here at Tribe) - try knitting the neck ribbing into a cowl or extra long fold-over turtleneck. Add cables, split the hem, knit it knee length, add stripes - the sky’s the limit.

    It is written in 10 sizes from 36 to 72” bust, so you have lots of options for fit, as well!

    Check out our INSTAGRAM LIVE where we go over yarn choices! You can choose one of our lovely bulky yarns, or we'll show you which yarns you can hold together for more interest and the perfect gauge too!

    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.
