Molly Conroy-Ungerecht – Workshop 2 Session 1

Wednesday, August 7 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Introduction to CocoKnits: Emma B

The CocoKnits method creates a perfectly fitting, set in sleeve top- all while working seamlessly from the top down. In this workshop, we will make Emma B because it is the fastest and easiest to make. The class will cover all of the tricky bits— the yoke, sleeve caps, how to work the increases, picking up stitches, and completing the worksheet. You will not finish the sweater during the class; however, Molly has agreed to set up a followup zoom if people need and want it.

Class Length:  9 hours (3 – 3 hour sessions)
