Hi Friends - we have decided to make all of our KALs virtual so you can join us for double the chance to win a giftcard and stay home and stay healthy in the meantime.



What is a make-a-long? Well, we are considering this make-a-long to include anything you make and share with us from now until we are back open or the end of April (TBA). Any new project that you make and share with us on instagram using the hashtags #jpksmaker and #jpksstayhomemal will get you an entry to win a JPKS giftcard for $20.
When we re-open, we will post and announce the winner!


Cocoknits Method Knit-a-Long: Emma Version A/B (edited since we are going virtual - stay home and make this knit!

After you cast-on, we will be having one meetup per month on Friday evenings from 6-8pm to work on our Emmas. Join us for this KAL and finish by the end April 10th and you will be entered to win a $20 JPKS giftcard*!

Welcome to Cocoknits first ever knit-a-long! Going on now through April 10th, 2020, we'll be knitting the Emma together (you get to choose VERSION A or VERSION B). This pattern is exclusively available in the COCOKNITS SWEATER WORKSHOP, and is a great first Cocoknits Method pattern to try. But if you've already tried the Cocoknits Method and want something a little more challenging, we'd love to have you join us too. Feel free to add cables, stitch patterns, colorwork, whatever you need to make it a fun knit for matter how much you customize, if you started from the base of an Emma Version A or B, we're happy to have you in the KAL. Plus, we'd love you to share your tips, tricks, and modifications with the rest of the group!
