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.
