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.

E-mail address:

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.

(A new newsletter issue is released each week. So if you don't sign up now, you'll miss this week's digest.)

Is this the American Woman's Weekly magazine, or the British one?

If you purchased the magazine and can read it online, you should be able to save a copy to your computer.

Then, open the PDF file and at the top of the "page" you will need to reduce the size to 100%. (Most open at 130% and that will not print correctly). Then, go to the page your pattern is on and right-click and on the drop down that appears, choose Print. It will open up a menu where you can print just the page/s you want. Be sure to do this, or it will print the entire magazine. Look for the correct page number at the same bar where you changed the size, not the printed page no. of the magazine. It probably is not the same. If you want to print page 43, 44, 45, you would put in the print box 43-45.

Also, if you are supposed to be able to print from the site, contact them and ask how you print from there. If you "store" the magazine on your computer, you can read it anytime. Hope this helps you get your Snowdog pattern.

Follow up: I read some notes where others could not print from the other site. One suggested that you use screen print. If you can get to the page you want to print, there is a key on your keyboard (top row) that says PrtSc. It will print anything that shows on your screen at that time. Good Luck, and let us know if it works.

There is a woman on ebay who is selling a pattern she has made up and is claiming its the only pattern. I did message her but she didnt reply. The Womans Weekly one is far better. Have you managed to get a copy yet?

As so many people are unable to get the pattern I think Women's Weekly should be either re printing or putting on site to download and print. As a life long reader I feel really angry over this as I and lots of friends tried to buy the magazine that week but could not find it. When finally on sale it was the next issue- so either something went wrong with the supply or not enough on sale- being over the Christmas period is not excuse
