About this Course

Too many wips? Too much stash? Wish you could knit faster? Well now you can! 

Would you like to learn to knit the continental way? Continental knitters carry the yarn in their left hand and their movements are usually much smaller than English style knitters which makes it much quicker. Anniken can knit up to 90 stitches per minute. She can't promise that you'll be that fast but with practice, you can definitely learn to knit faster!

Anniken's in person Continental Knitting workshops are extremely popular.

 If you can't attend her workshops, here's your chance to attend her online course.

Anniken is a popular & in demand teacher as well as a prolific designer. Her designs have been widely published in the UK & the US including the cover design of Vogue Knitting Holiday 2015.

Continental knitting with Norwegian Purl is now an 'on demand' course which means you can start straight away.


Pay only US $30 (approx UK £20 - depending on exact exchange rate at time of registration). 

You will learn how to:

This course is not aimed at complete beginners but anyone who know basic knitting skills (whichever style you use) will benefit from this course. I have been teaching this course in yarn shops in the UK since 2006 and my students have ranged in age from 20something to 80+. Some students have been knitting for a couple of months and some have been knitting for 60+ years.

Online Continental Knitting is designed to last for a week but you will be able to access the course material indefinitely after the course has finished. However I guarantee access and teacher support for 3 months after the course has finished.

The course includes videos, written lessons and photo tutorials. You can ask questions and discuss with your fellow students as well as e-mail me privately. You can also upload videos or photos when you ask questions.

This course starts as soon as you've signed up & lasts for one week but you can work at your own pace and take longer than one week if needed. After the course has finished you will keep access to the course material indefinitely and can repeat the course as often as you like.
