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

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter, 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 message board digest with the latest knitting 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.

• 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.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more knitting-related material (pictures, patterns, tips) than contained in all knitting books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

You'll be able to talk and share ideas with more knitters than you could meet if you attended all the largest trade shows. And you'll be able to do all that without leaving your house!

Don't delay! Join the best knitting and crochet community on the Internet.

It's FREE, and you'll receive my first e-mail right away. Also, you'll get instant access to the most recent topics on our knitting forum: hundreds of great tips from other knitters.

I have been looking on the internet for a top down hooded baby sweater and have had no luck, so I thought I would ask you lovely ladies if any of you have a pattern for a hooded baby sweater knit top down. I would really appreciate any help you can give me. Also I am looking to make a size 1 and a size 2. Thanks in advance and happy knitting :-)

This is a 'top down baby sweater' pattern that I think could have a hood added.

You could maybe start with a 'provisional' cast on, then when the pattern is completed remove the provisional cast on and pick up the stitches add some increases evenly around the neck and knit up a hood.

Search at the top of this page for "hooded baby sweaters" and you will see my post. I have made many sweaters with this pattern.

Actually you should scroll down to "hooded baby cardigan CORRECTION " as Linda downloaded my pattern with a slight correction on the second page.

Good luck and happy knittting.

I just finished this in pink for my great great niece. Easy and quick...and cute. I put a small pom pom on the hood.

I made this one: in pink and one in blue...

They were super easy, quick, and fit my 6 month old grandbabies perfectly!

And with the leftover yarn I made (Danger Craft's) sock monkeys!

I have used the same pattern many times. I love all Knitting Pure and Simple top down patterns. Diane Soucy makes them so easy to understand. Some are free and some are not, but they are not expensive either.
