About This Class

Learn to knit with Sheep & Stitch founder Davina Choy's fun one-hour intermediate class. With friendly and clear instruction, she introduces four easy techniques to expand your repertoire: knitting in the round, working with double pointed needles, how to decrease, and how to create a pom pom. She demonstrates each technique in a Skillshare-exclusive slouchy hat pattern specifically designed for this level, and the zoomed-in video lessons make it easy to see each move. By the class's end, you'll have a slouchy hat to throw on any outfit or share with a friend.

This is a great class for making a good looking hat in the round. She covers everything you'll need to know. No skimping on instruction. The camera work is great, the teaching clear and will carry over to other projects. Highly reccomend this. Enjoyed it.

Davina Choy

Yarn Wrangler at Sheep & Stitch

Davina is the founder of Sheep and Stitch, a website that teaches people how to knit through knitting patterns, video tutorials, yarns and kits. Knitting is an incredible act of creation. Think about it: with just sticks, string, and your own two hands, you can make a hat ... or a scarf ... or a sweater! It seems like pure magic! And yet, it's actually pretty easy to do. Davina's goal is to share the magic of knitting so that everyone can experience the joy of making something beautiful and warm with their own two hands.
