Knitting – Intermediate Class

Course Description:

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! This term, we’ll be taking a look at lace knitting – the fine art of creating delicate, light-as-air knitted fabrics with stunning openwork designs. 

During this 10-week course, we’ll begin by learning how to create the deliberate holes which are the building block of lace knitting patterns, and we’ll practice this technique in our first project, a simple lace cowl. After that, we’ll make a start on the main project of the course, and students will have the option of making either a larger lace shawl or, for the more ambitious, a lace jumper.

Along the way, you’ll learn about:

  • Reading knitting patterns – both written instructions and pattern charts
  • Working in the round to create seamless garments and accessories
  • Fitting garments and how to choose your size
  • Choosing materials
  • 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
  • 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 Tuesdays, 7 – 9 pm, instead.

Start Date: 01/02/24

Cost: 115 (Includes yarn for the first project)

Please Note:  Course fee does not include knitting needles or materials for the final project, which should be purchased separately by students.

Enrolment: You can enrol online through our website by clicking on the Easy Payments Plus button. Enrolment will open on the 6th of December at 10am.

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.

So, why not see where your knitting journey takes you next? Join me for Knitting, Intermediate Level at Malahide Community School… And in the meantime, visit me online for pattern ideas, a browse in my yarn store and a peek at what my current students are making!
