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.

That is a very nice hat. Can you share the pattern? I was thinking a beaver hat was something like a "top hat" only not as tall. Usually made out of beaver.

Oh, when she said it had a tail I thought she mixed it up with the coonskin hat. Never heard of a beaver hat. :oops:

Forgot about the "tail". Glydia may have been talking about the coon kin hat. There is a beaver hat I believe it is made from beaver pelts (no tail). It is, I believe more of a dress hat from years past. Site search coming up. Ok did a search and a beaver hat is a hat made from beaver pelt and the top hat is one of those. Popular from the 1500's through the 1800's. Several styles were made from the beaver pelt and they all appeared to be a "dress" hat of one kind or another. :-D

...sort've like the one Lincoln wore (stove pipe hat) only shorter I guess. Have to wait for glydia's response to see which it is.

How do i get the pattern to print from Raverly? I think the coon skin hat is so cute. My one great niece will be 3 in Dec. and going to have a new little sister in August. I thought about making them in pink or purple fun fur.Thanks for any help.

Think you have to get the book to get the pattern on Ravelry - or you could try the Knitty pattern
