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:

A lady at work asked for a red and purple ruffled scarf , since they don't make it I had to hold together red and purple sashay yarn. She loved it! But I told her if any of the other ladies in her club want one they would be 25 dollars each because it was such a pain to do !

It is beautiful and worth way more than $25.00.

Oh that's PERFECT!!! Love it and I agree with Jean - worth WAY more than $25.

I made one for a friend using a single "skein" and hated the making of it - $25 sounds like very little for the aggravation!

Very nice scarf!

Very nice....I have been hesitant to even try using that type of yarn/thread. Looks complicated....I think $25 would be too low of a price.

guess it depends on where you are located...I had trouble getting 12 dollars out of mine...still have more to make...when I am feeling better....I liked making them though...

wow...nice...2 skeins at a time??? Now, that is very time consuming!!!! Not hard, just slow are giving them a fantastic deal at $25.00....

Lol I didn't want to give them a deal, I was hoping the 25 dollar price tag would scare them away! It really was a pain to do and only did it because I like the lady . ;)

Very nicely done! You must like the lady a lot, and she is a lucky lady to have you as a friend.

I have never thought to do that... hold two together. Yours looks amazing. Great job. Love your pupy in your Avatar.

That's a great idea, it is gorgeous.

I also think $ 25 dollars makes it a real bargain. ( I'll take two please )... Just kidding. Your work is beautiful, I'm sure it was a pain to knit. I would just nicely say you have other things you want/need to knit. Your friend is a lucky woman.

it is beautiful. I made some of these scarfs using a single skein. I gave two away to the ladies that work at my automotive service area. They liked them. I was asked to bring in more. I them sold 4 more for $20.00 a piece. I was happy that they liked them and were willing to pay me for them.
