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.

I sent a message looking for a pattern and was frustrated with your web site.
I was told to write back describing what I am looking for. The square is not on Pinterest any longer but when it was it showed it was your website. When I clicked on on the website there several pictures of granny squares but I could not get into that part of your website. The square looks like a granny square with a star in the middle. It looks like a varigated yarn was used. I went to the websites that someone was so kind to give me but the pattern was not there.
Thank you

I'm not sure what you are looking for as I don't crochet.

Here is one I found by doing an internet search for "granny square with star pattern".
You could look through the images here and perhaps find the one you are looking for also.;_ylt=A0oG7luSwqtQ1isAPmRXNyoA?p=granny+square+with+star+pattern&fr=crmas&fr2=piv-web

The only other suggestion I have would be for you to do a Search (at the top of the forum page) for granny square and look through the posts on that subject.

Sorry you are frustrated with the site. The organization of the posts is based mostly on the title and people don't always use titles that denote what is in the post.

The only one I could find so far which you describe is this one:

I'm beginning to thinks I'm never going to find it. I know it is in the knitting paradise website I just dont know what the name of it is. I know that when I found it on Pinterest I clicked on the knitting website it did show some other pictures but no names.

Unless the person who originally posted the picture of the granny square afghan you are looking for reads this post and recognizes what you are talking about reads this topic, it is very hard to find what you are describing. I personally have spent 15 minutes looking at what I have downloaded, what I have pinned, Grandmother's pattern book, etc. looking for a pattern that might fit what you described. So really we are trying to help you but without a picture, it is hard to find what you are looking for.

Go back to the Yahoo search link, scroll down until you find it again. When you "hover" over the picture, you will see the link at the bottom of the picture. Don't double-click at that point. Write down the link and if it is KP, the entire link. The problem in it being gone when you went back is that the search goes back to the first page, not where you were when you opened up the picture. There are also page #s that you could tell us where it is by page and color of the picture. Want to try that?

I just googled "granny square with star" and clicked on an image and found this website When I went to the site, there was a reference to a book that contained the pattern for a blanket. I hope this helps.

Is it maybe this one??

I may have pined the star granny square you are looking for. Go to Ravelry and type in the search box "star square" the color is different than the one posted, but if this is the star square you are looking for, read down below and it will tell you how to purchase the pattern, it is $4.99

I think this is the one you're looking for.
