The Constant Knitter

The Constant Knitter yarn shop, voted one of the twelve best shops in Ireland by The Irish Times and its readers, is based on Francis Street in the heart of the antiques quarter of Dublin City, which in turn, is in the heart of the historic Liberties area. This is a very well stocked yarn shop with a wide range of brands, including some Irish yarns such as Studio Donegal and Cushendale. We also have a big range of notions and buttons and we stock the HiyaHiya brand of knitting needles.



There is a charming and very bright studio over the shop which hosts lots of social and craft events. They run classes and workshops such as knitting, crochet, sewing, embroidery, Irish crochet lace, wet felting and whatever else takes their fancy. During the summer months, they also run children's craft classes. Get in touch if you have a child or or a group of children who would like to learn some new craft. Details of classes and workshops are on the website and Facebook page.



The Constant Knitter can also organise group events, just let them know what you want! The Cross Gallery has just opened a small but perfectly-formed café just across the road from the shop, called Café Cross where you will be made very welcome.



Check the website for evening knitting groups, where you can knit and chat and have tea!
For opening times, etc, please see the website.
