Knitting Emma is a great way for newcomers to the Cocoknits Method to try it out. There are three versions to choose from — all are quick-knits with a gauge of 3 stitches to 1” / 2.5 cm. Every version has optional waist shaping for a flattering fit. Available in sizes ranging from S to 3X (700 - 1400 yds / 640 - 1280 m).

We recommend working with a bulky or heavy aran weight yarn — at least the first time you try this method. If you've tried this method before and would like guidance (or a refresher) with a lighter-weight spring or summer yarn (fingering or sport weight linen, cotton, etc), this is a great opportunity to expand your skillset. You'll want to modify every sweater and top pattern from now on using Julie's method...trust us!

Heavy weight (Worsted to Bulky)
Mid-weight (sport to DK)
Lightweight (lace to fingering — held on its own, doubled, or with another yarn)
Feeling confident? Try holding it with a strand of one of the yarns below, for additional texture, softness, and warmth...
