Why Would You Ever Want to Pay For Knitting and Crochet Patterns or Lessons When You Can Get All That for Free?
Read this:
 

We have some of the most skilled knitters and crocheters in the world posting patterns and techniques like you've never seen before. And some of them only post on our website and nowhere else, so you won't find these patterns anywhere else no matter how much time you spend searching! So keep reading.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch specific brands of hooks or needles, yarn, or paid tutorials, while collecting sales commission.

Instead, we have other people, who are great knitters and crocheters, share with you what they know about knitting and crochet. What accessories they use, which yarn is the best for which type of project, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other knitting websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter or crocheter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting e-mail newsletter are:

• We cover hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a knitting/crochet forum digest with the latest pictures, discussions and patterns.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• Discover the fastest way to knit (and to crochet) a sock... while keeping the perfect heel and making sure the sock fits (not many knitters know this).

• Find out how to figure out how much yarn you need for a pattern if the pattern doesn't specify it (works for any project, a real life-saver sometimes).

• Learn how to pick up a dropped stitch, even from several rows below. It happens to absolutely everyone at some point. But don't worry, there exists a really simple fix.

• And if you ever run out of yarn, find out how to join any yarn in the middle of any project.

• If you can't find the pattern that you need, or if you don't know which pattern would be most appropriate for a specific project, then you can ask our other users to help you figure it out. We even have a dedicated "Pattern Requests" section on our website that's all about finding new patterns.

• The same goes for any problems and questions about specific techniques. We have experienced users who are always helping those in need with just the right advice.

Note to crocheters: We cover both knitting and crochet on our website. The name Knitting Paradise is just a matter of history of how this website was started. These days, close to 50% of content on our forum is about crochet. So it doesn't matter if you primarily knit or crochet (or if you only crochet), you'll still find just as many patterns, tips, and tutorials that are relevant to your specific interests.

• And of course, as I said it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for knitters and crocheters, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Here is how to proceed and what to expect:

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting and crochet mailing list distribution. You'll receive a one-time confirmation e-mail. Right after that, the first e-mail with today's digest will be forwarded to you. The signup process is completely automated, so you are just a few minutes away from discovering what our existing users already received earlier today. So you'll get up to speed right away on what's the latest on our website, without any long introductions or other delays.

The sashay skirt pattern that I have uses worsted yarn in combination with the sashay. It is worked in the round. Rd1says to work worsted and netted stitches as if one stitch. No problem. Then it says using worsted yarn knit around. Does that mean worsted yarn only?

Rounds 2 thru 7 says to knit every stitch. Does that mean just with worsted.
Round 8 *knit one stitch, CO one netted stitch* around.

My confusion is the end of row one and then 2 thru 7. I think I get it but need another point of view and y'all are always the best. Thanks, Granmommie

Im pretty sure it means just worsted because you knit plain rows in between the ruffle rows :-)
I haven't started mine yet but thats how I understood it :-)
good luck

I have made a couple of these so far - not the same pattern - but rows 2 - 7 should be worked in the worsted and for row 8 it looks like you knit 1 and then put the netted yarn. Does row 9 say anything about knitting through both the worsted and netted together similar to row 1. The pattern I have says to knit just the netted for 1 row and then continue with worsted like before.

I made one last night and yes you knit with worsted yarn only rounds 2 thru 7. Then on row 8 you bring the netted yarn up skip about three holes and this is hidden by the ruffle. The part of the netted yarn that you bring up lays underneath the ruffle. I hope this is clear.
I was using "Knitted Ruffle Skirt" by Knockout Kreations but the pattern reads the same as yours I believe.

I can't wait to hear more comments. I have the yarn in my hot little fist but haven't had the courage to start it yet.

Here are 2 patterns I downloaded from the Web: a Ruffled Tutu and a Ruffled Handbag that you could convert into a skirt. The important thing is to get the waist size correct and then work to the desired length.

I'm getting ready to order that pattern, and from the posts I can tell that I will have a lot of questions! Thank goodness there are so many knowledgeable knitters on KP!

Thank you. I thought I read it correctly but needed confirmation. Have not started it yet. I have to read patterns multiple times sometimes before it sinks in. It is hard to visualize. I appreciate your response. Thank you so much.
