Julie Weisenberger
Julie learned to knit in Europe and ran a small sweater company that sold to boutiques across the United States. Now, as Cocoknits, her main focus is on designing for hand-knitters of all shapes and sizes using many of the techniques she learned in Europe and the ready-to-wear industry.

Julie has perfected the top-down, seamless method using English tailoring, which creates a flattering and perfectly fitted set-in sleeve sweater. Her simple silhouettes combined with fine yarns result in elegant, wearable designs for knitters of all abilities. In addition to designing, she develops knitting tools based on real-life experience.
