Cocoknits is based in Oakland, California. We are a small team of women who love to make things and love supporting other creative people and businesses. We believe all Makers should have beautiful, high-quality, tools to use in their craft.
Cocoknits founder, Julie Weisenberger, learned to knit and completed her first sweater in college while studying abroad in Salzburg, Austria. She has been knitting and designing ever since. In the 1980s she ran her own knitwear company; in the 1990s she designed sweaters for yarn companies and magazines; and in 2007 she founded Cocoknits.com, her own pattern and tool company.
Over the years she has developed and perfected a unique top-down, seamless method of sweater knitting called the Cocoknits Method, and created a line of tools that make the process of knitting and Making easier and more beautiful.
Julie was inspired to design this tool knowing there must be an easier way to read knitting charts! From there, the Maker’s Board evolved to hold little tools, recipes, or a tablet. This is one accessory that can do a lot!
Designed to be used with our Maker’s Board, the handy Ruler and Gauge are also useful on their own. Magnets are embedded (without glue) in the back of each tool so they attach to the Maker’s Board, or any metal surface.
Designed to be used with Cocoknits' MAKER’S BOARD, this Colorful Magnet set is made from plastic-free PLA (plant fiber) and very strong magnets, strong enough that both the front and back will work.
One of the many advantages to knitting is that you can take it with you everywhere! And, in the process, lose little knitting notions everywhere! Cocoknits wanted a way to truly contain all their knitting tools while traveling!
Looking for the perfect needle gauge for traveling? Cocoknits fashioned one based on those a jeweler would use to size diamonds. The result is a joyous rainbow stack of connected discs for identifying knitting needle sizes US 0-15 / 2-10 mm.
Please note the accessory pouch does not comes empty without notions.
We love Cocoknits new tape measure!! The metal tape inside measures both inches and cm/mm (78" / 2 m long), and has a metal tab on the end to keep it from retracting into the body of the tape measure. Because Cocoknits is committed to avoiding plastic w

It’s terrible when you are knitting along and suddenly notice that little stitch you dropped a few rows back. Never fear, Cocoknits to the rescue! I created a two-ended hook tool which makes it easier to pull a stitch up in garter or seed or any pattern w
