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.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter or crocheter, 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/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.

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!

I want to start lining the inside edge of some of my knitted hats. I also want to line knitted headbands. Is it best to do this on machine or sew by hand?

I do the method Thrummed mittens and you can do hats and socks too. I googled it to learn how and it sure makes a difference.

It might be Thrum but its not really that hard. If I can do it you can too.

Thx. I'll google it!

I sew them in by hand.. if you have a machine that you can drop the feed dogs and put a foot on it that won't snag your knitting you could use the machine. I would use a basting stitch with a slight zigzag so it will stretch. Keep in mind that your stitches might show.. doing it by hand doesn't take very long and won't show.. its up to you.. I love to line the hats it really helps hide flaws, color changes and makes them extra warm...

it would be easier for me to do it by hand

We're u talking about fleece fabric or fleece wool. Thrummed mittens are made with roving--unspun wool knitted in one stitch at a time. It should be warmer than a fabric lining.

Oh.. ok my brain went to what I do and never even considered there were other way's.. LOL I'm sorry..

I was talking about a fleece lining. Thrumming idea is neat too though!

From your location, I'd say you were in a cold area like I am. One thing I would suggest is to use the right kind of yarn. My favorites for keeping warm is Lion brand Hometown superbulky yarn. We've been having temps in the 20's and 30's lately. My hat has been so hot that I've had to take it off.
