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 am knitting the blanket in Leisure Arts book 4577. This is lace leaves knitted. I did fine up to row 45-67. I can't seem to figure out the order of the rows. I checked for errata on Ravelery and it indicated that there were corrections. I tried to follow it up on LA site and could not find any corrections. Please help row 45-67. Thank you.

Knit Lace & Leaves for Baby (Leisure Arts #4577)

There only appears to be corrections for the sweater and cap.
What are the instructions for the rows you are having problems with on the blanket?

I think if you number your rows 45 thru 67 and then beside that start with 39 - going thru the rows, you will be doing the row 40 decrease row 11 times for 22 decreased stitches, leaving you with 9 stitches. (You have 31st. before you start this) 31 st minus 22 dec. st. = 9 st.

45 - Row 39 -K4, (YO, K2tog) across to last 3 st., K3.
46 - Row 40 dec -29 st
47 - Row 41 - knit
48 - Row 42 (Row 40) dec 2 - 27st
49 - Row 43 (Row 41) knit
50 - Row 44 (Row 40) dec 2 - 25st.

51 - Row 39
52 - Row 40 (dec.) 23 st
53 - Row 41 - knit
54 - Row 42 (Row 40) dec 2 - 21st
55 - Row 43 (Row 41) knit
56 - Row 44 (Row 40) dec 2 - 19st

57 - Row 39
58 - Row 40 (dec.) 17 st
59 - Row 41 knit
60 - Row 42 (Row 40) dec 2 -15st
61 - Row 43 (Row 41) knit
62 - Row 44 (Row 40) dec 2 - 13st

63 - Row 39
64 - Row 40 (dec.) - 11st
65 - Row 41 knit
66 - Row 42 (Row 40) dec 2 - 9st
67 - Row 43 (Row 41) knit

Hope this works - It's late, so you might want to check the numbering and make sure I got the right row in the right place.
