Knitting – Intermediate Class
Do you already know the basics of knitting, but you’re not quite sure what to do next? If so, our intermediate knitting course is for you! During the 10 weeks of this course, we’ll be taking a look at one of the most rewarding knitting techniques – working in the round to create accessories and garments that don’t need to be sewn together after you cast off.
We’ll work on two projects during the class, beginning with a simple chunky hat to help you get to grips with the method. After that, we’ll take it up a gear and make a start on a jumper.
Along the way, you’ll learn about:
- Choosing yarn for your projects
- Fitting your garment and choosing a size
- Reading, adapting and modifying knitting patterns
- Finishing, blocking and aftercare for your handknits.
Skills checklist – if you’re taking this course, I will assume you’re already confident in
- Casting on (long tail method)
- The two main stitches: knit and purl
- Casting off
Please Note: If there are any gaps in your knowledge in these areas, I’d recommend our Knitting for Beginners class on Tuesday’s, 7 – 9 pm, instead.

I first learned to knit when I was six years old, and since then my knitting has taken me all
sorts of places – from selling my own handknitted pieces at craft markets to making Aran
sweaters for a Dublin-based fashion designer. I started teaching in 2018, and nothing
makes me happier than watching my students go from taking their first tentative stitches to
proudly holding up a successfully completed project.
