Julie Weisenberger is an internationally renowned knitwear designer and teacher known for her elegant, modern fashion sense and her unique commonsense method to knitting tailored, seamless sweaters that are as enjoyable to make as they are comfortable and flattering to wear.
Make a gauge swatch with the bulky yarn. Gauge should measure approximately 3 sts/inch. Make sure you get a fabric you’d like to wear! Julie always knits a bit open for nice drape. In class we can adjust the gauge or the sweater size, but come with at least one swatch that you like the feel of.
Read through first couple of chapters of the book and Emma pattern (optional)
Be familiar with Cocoknits Method increases if possible! This will make the knitting go faster during the workshop
