In this class we will work through the techniques of the Cocoknits Method and you will knit one of the sweaters from the Cocoknits Sweater Workshop book.  We will discuss the options for this on the first day of class, or you can come into the shop or call earlier if you would rather plan further ahead.

It is recommended that you first work through knitting a practice sweater yoke using a skein of inexpensive, light colored practice yarn.

Materials:

  • Cocoknits Sweater Workshop book (we have them for sale for $35)
  • Stitch markers in 6 different colors
  • Approx 200 yards of "practice" yarn and appropriate needles for knitting a practice sweater yoke.
  • Yarn and needles to knit one of the sweaters in the workshop book. 

Skill Level: Intermediate or advanced knitter

Cost: $60 

Instructor: Carla Billingsley

Carla Billingsley rediscovered knitting shortly after her 40th birthday when she fell in love with handpainted and novelty yarns. At first she only made rectangles and triangles: scarves, throws, and shawls.  Eventually she worked up the courage to try lace and socks.  After learning to turn her first heel she realized that you can learn anything if you set your mind to it, and that learning is really easy if you can take a class with a good teacher.  In 2014 she and her husband Curtis moved to Texas and in June 2015 they opened Quixotic Fibers.  From the beginning, her vision for the shop was that it is not just a place to buy yarn and fiber, but that it should become a community resource dedicated to the preservation and development of the fiber arts, a place where knitters, crocheters, weavers, and spinners can gather to learn from and to inspire each other.
