Cocoknits Method Sweater Workshop with Pam

We are very excited to offer a Cocoknits Method Sweater class this Spring! 

In this class, you will learn a unique process for knitting a seamless, top-down, set-in sleeve sweater. You’ll also learn how to use the Cocoknits Sweater Worksheet, which allows you to easily keep track of your increases on a seamless yoke. We will be making the newly released Mabel sweater, which is a loose-fitting, comfortable pullover. It is the perfect staple sweater to add to your wardrobe.
