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:

Thank you for the pattern. This is going into my list of things to knit soon since I have a friend with a birthday coming next week and this is the perfect over the weekend project. And, I have stash yarn waiting!

Bookmarked! Thanks!!

Thanks for the pattern. Have copied it and will put it with my "to do" patterns. One question - looking at the picture it seems to me that when ending the scarf you ended with knit 12 rows - is this correct??
Nov 9, 2012 11:03:40   #
Yes, you finish with 12 knit rows.

Jill May, you just may be the answer to my prayers! I have been fretting over a scarf I want to make my sister for Christmas! I have tried numerous different pattern-yarn combinations and keep ripping them out because I am afraid it is not what she wants. Since it is a surprise, I can't exactly ask her...

I really like the pattern you posted and am going to try this as soon as I finish my daily dose of KP.

GRANDMA-S...I love your avatar picture. That is hilarious!

How talented you are! And so generous of you to share the pattern; I believe there will be a lot of these made as Christmas gifts. Debi

Here is another scarf pattern which I made for another GD, I have 5 and 3 grandsons. I had so many lovely comments on my first one that I would like to share this one too.

The pattern would be a good one for a beginner who can knit and purl but who would like to try something different. Again you can use any yarn, just match it with suitable size needles. I used Sirdar Snuggly double knit and 4mm needles.

Cast on as many stitches as you need for your desired width which is a multiple of 3 + 2. I used 38 sts for a scarf 6.5 ins wide.

Knit 12rows

Row 13. K2 * yo k2 tog K1; repeat from * to end of row.
Row 14 p2 *K1,P2; rep from * to gender of row.
Row15. k2 *k2tog, yo, K1 rep from * toned of row
Row 16 P1 *K1, P2; rep from * to last 4 sts, K1 P3

Repeat rows 13 -16 twice more.

24 rows altogether.

Repeat these 24 rows to the desired length, then cast off.

Hope you like it.
