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.

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.
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.
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!
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!
Please note the accessory pouch does not comes empty without notions.
