The Sweater Care Kit

The Cocoknits Sweater Care Kit contains everything you need for handwashing and blocking your hand-knit items and all of your fine hand-washables. The kit is perfect for:

  • blocking seamless sweaters or accessories which do not require pinning
  • washing and drying seamed sweaters, either hand-knit or store-bought

If you knit mostly scarves, shawls, seamed sweaters and other pin-able items, the Knitter’s Block kit is probably best for you.

To protect surfaces from water, lay the Sweater Care Kit on the Knitter’s Block or other surface not susceptible to water damage. Wash super-absorbent towels in cold water and air dry.

The Sweater Care Kit includes:

  • two fine mesh, zippered laundry bags (small: 8″ × 12 × 8″, large: 8″ × 22″ × 8″)
  • one large super-absorbent towel (dimensions 36″ × 60″)
  • one super-absorbent grid towel, inches and centimeters on opposite sides (dimensions 40″ × 40″)
  • one mesh pop-up dryer (dimensions 28″ × 34″ opened, 11″ diameter folded)
  • a bottle of unscented Eucalan wash
  • jute bag (dimensions 15″ × 12″ × 5″)

Everything you need to block your handknits.

  • 18 interlocking, fiber-topped EVA foam tiles, each measures 12″ × 12″ (tiles from the new kit are compatible with older Knitter’s Block tiles)
  • 40 stainless steel T-pins
  • 48″ square cotton cloth woven with 1″ square gingham to help measure your finished piece
  • A sturdy jute bag to contain the kit

What makes Knitter’s Block special?

Very low, lightly barbed pile – fabric covering gently grips your knitting without pilling or leaving fibers

Versatile – can be assembled in a variety of sizes from a square for sweater pieces, a long rectangle for scarves or a triangle for shawls

Thick backing of waterproof EVA – suitable for use on any surface since moisture won’t seep through, holds pins firmly in place, blocked items dry faster than with towels because the tiles don’t absorb water

Heat resistant – essential for steam blocking

Compact – blocks are stored in a sturdy 14”x14” bag

These are the mini version of Cocoknits popular ring stitch markers. They are brightly colored and easily seen when marking rounds, increases, decreases, and stitch patterns. Stitch markers accommodate up to US 7 / 4.5mm needle. Made of nylon coated steel, these markers attach to your Knitter’s Keep or any magnet so that you can easily store and retrieve them. Included are 10 each of 6 colors.

Claw Clips

These little toothed-clips grip your knitting during or before seaming. They are a discreet clear-matte so the emphasis stays on your yarn or project, not on the clip.
