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!

Don't delay! Join the best knitting and crochet community on the Internet.

Has anyone seen Game of Thrones?
There is a beautiful long red knitted cape with hood that I would love to make.
Any idea what it might be called or where to find a pattern?
Thanks!

That's where I started. No luck. I thought I'd try here. :)

can you find a pic of it? would help in finding a similar pattern.

Here are some capes from ravelry. Maybe you can find a similar look. If its' too short knit it longer.

I was able to get some screen shots. Upon closer inspection, probably not knitted. Still, it's a beautiful garment. I would love to make one.

I couldn't get your download to work, but is this the same type of cloak you were referring to? I couldn't find any that were red. The one in the link is sewn not knitted. The second link, from Ravelry is knitted and could be made in red if it is close enough. Good luck =)

If you sew, here is a discontinued pattern that is for sale at a reasonable price and it has what is called a ethereal cloak that is pretty close.

Here is another one that is available through Ravelry. It is called a seamless cape and it could easily be made floor length. It is already big enough that it can be worn closed with a clasp.

Hope this is helpful =)

Yes! This is the one to which I was referring.

I, too, do not think this is knitted. The link Ms. Tess posted http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/skyes-traveling-cloak
comes the closest for basic shape underneath. Some of your pictures look like there might be an over piece, oh I wish I could draw a quick picture here to get your feedback!
Will work on it and be right back!

Sketch of my interpretation of the cape:
reminds me of the robes and a hooded overrobe priests wore when I was young!
A hoodless full-length cape with arm slits in one design pattern and an overrobe that only comes to the shoulder and goes over the front and the back with very generous hood attached.

Edit: It will not let me attach my sketch, tried twice! Try again later.
Tried again, same error message, went and looked at the uploading pictures help again and am doing it correctly. So, I PM's admin. Hopefully can get it to work later.

Can you put your sketch as a picture in an MS Word document and add that?

Thank you for the suggestion. Am attaching sketch for cape using that method - in MS Word document.

Edit:
Whoo Hooo! It worked, thank you!

It is a sewn cape and if you go to any fabric store and look in the pattern books for "Halloween" costumes, there is a pattern for a long cape. I know because I bought one a year or so back. Can you imagine walking with a knitted cape that long, it would get snagged on everything you walked by.

Very nice! Thanks for the tips. Great job with MS Word, too. :)

You have a very good point about the potential to snag on everything.
I have a long, calf length, wool coat. It drags getting in and out of a vehicle. Have to really watch it.
The one I have that is just below the knees works so much better in that regard.
Do like the looks of the ankle length one though, always have!
