Timeless, classically-inspired designs interpreted in contemporary terms.

I started knitting almost 40 years ago, and at that time found most men’s sweater patterns uninspiring. So, I quickly learned to design my own patterns and have been doing so ever since. Over the years, I’ve talked to women and men from New York to Kansas to L.A., and conducted research among thousands of knitters. I asked what they really want in a hand-knit sweater, and they told me: sophisticated, timeless, classically-inspired designs interpreted in contemporary terms. Which is the basis for James Cox Knits designs.

The gender neutral patterns and knitwear kits I offer are being crafted and worn by both men and women. Most are knit from the top down, in the round, and have no seams to be sewn. Almost all patterns are accompanied by a unique row checker, a helpful tool with check off boxes for keeping track of stitch counts row-by-row, increases and decreases. Trouble shooting becomes easier, and after weeks or months you can return to your work and pick up exactly where you left off.

A library on pattern specific terms and techniques (with links to video tutorials) are on my web site, along with downloadable guides for top down knitting.
