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.)

adultfemalehalfcircle-shapelaceone-piecerufflesslip-stitchteenwrapwritten-pattern
This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download
This shawl is similar to the Kelp Forest Shawlette but it is a half-circle, not a circle. Starting from the neck, the rows are made by crocheting the thin edge into the wide edge. The tricky part is turning at the end of each row. To do this, fold the yarn under at 45° and slip stitch across to the wide edge. The pattern includes detailed photos.

Materials: You may need two skeins of yarn if you want to make the large size or a lengthier shawl. Gauge and size are not critical for this shawl. Other ruffled yarns may be used but spacing of stitches and loops may have to be adjusted.

Note: If you have not used this type of yarn, there are several You Tubes, which are helpful, including ones at Red Heart: http://www.redheart.com/learn/videos/learn-crochet-sashay

Here's the link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sophias-shawl

I'm not a crocheter, so I can't really help, but hopefully someone else can step forward with a solution.

Have you used Sashay before? Try making one of their ruffle scarves first, if you haven't. There are tutorials on line. Basically, you do not wrap the yarn to make the stitch. You flatten out the yarn, with the metallic edge toward the bottom. Then, you knit with the top edge. I was lucky enough to have a lady show me in person, but, if you google Ruffle yarn Tutorials, you'll find something. And, if you've not used this yarn before, it is totally worth the time to unroll it, and re-wind it flat. One person on here winds it on to an empty toilet paper roll. Just to get the hang of it, I would try a ruffle scarf first.

It might help if you take a look at the forest kelp shawl they reference - the technique will be the same.

The "Kelp Forest Shawlette on Ravelry seems to be the closest
