Cocoknits English Tailoring - Coming soon!
Instructor: Julie Weisenberger of Cocoknits
English Tailoring is very common in ready-to-wear. If you look in your wardrobe, chances are you will find a store-bought sweater or knitwear piece featuring English Tailored shoulders. It is a technique which has several advantages.
Most of Julie's traditional sweater patterns are knitted using this technique, which is written into the pattern. She uses it for both bottom-up sweaters, which are mostly seamless, and have developed a technique for top-down sweaters, which are completely seamless.
This class will allow you see the results without having to knit an entire adult sweater. You can decide if it’s a technique you like and wish to use in the future, as well as give you some extra practice if you are knitting one of Julie's patterns.
In class, students will CO and knit top-down and seamlessly the yoke of a practice cardigan. Students should be able to get to the underarms in class, and will receive a handout that includes instructions to finish the lower half of the cardigan at home if you desire.
