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 and crochet 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/crochet 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:

Hi Folks,

I've been searching all over online trying to find a pattern for a Newsboy Cap with the bill or peak and haven't found any decent patterns. Though I do prefer a bill or peak that is ribbed. I think it looks cleaner than the one pictured below.

If you happen to know where I can locate, or have one you don't mind sharing, that would be great.
Attaching a photo so you can see the type of cap I'm looking to create.

Thanks so much!

There are two patterns on redheart, but one has already been posted by elaine(the first one). There was another one very similar by Debbie Stoller.
i haven't seen one exactly like the one in the pic though. Hope someone else can help more.

I have found that Lion has just about any pattern I look for, FREE. They also send a nice catalog twice a year. To all my new friends on this site, I'll just pass along the folowing. I print patterns sot hat I don't have to wonder where I saw one. I have accumulated so many that I now have 6 notebooks, organized into knitting and crocheting, looming, etc., then tabbed sheets for scarves, hats, baby, toys, etc. One is strictly for instructions and tutorials (same thing?) A friend stopped by and went thru my knit book for a cap and took home 3 copies. Met a lady from Missouri in a store who wanted a stocking cap pattern. I gave her my number and when she got back home, called to thank me for helping find just what she wanted.. Is this a great small world? No strangers in my life.

I found one from Red Heart on line. It was knitted from RED HEART ZOOMY. I knitted it from worsted weight for my granddaughter. I assume that you could go to the Red Heart website. It looks great.

I've looked a lot for these--best one I found is in Stitch 'N Bitch for knitting. Has a great "bill" with plastic canvas inside of it.

I found one at the Knit Picks site, but not sure if it was free or if I paid for it. Really cute for young boys.

Hi there

I am new to the site. I printed out this pattern but I have not completed it but it looks close to what you're looking for. Google -" Free Intermediate Knit Pattern - Newsboy Hat "
You don't need the quotation marks.

I can't find that yarn listed on Red Heart's site. Is it new or very old?

The pattern that knitlogical designed now available on Coats and Clark really looked the closest to what you pictured. I was surprised. I down loaded it also. Jan
