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.)

This is my third pair of socks knitted with 12" circular needles and I LOVE knitting socks.... something I NEVER thought I would say!

With this method, there are no techniques to "master", no videos to watch, no tips or tricks to learn. You don't have to fiddle with DPNS or try and remember which stitches are on which needle, etc. You don't have to worry about laddering, learning magic loop or knitting with two circular needles. Just cast on and knit your sock!

I can knit one of these socks in about two hours so I have a pair in an evening!

So many of you were interested in this quick, easy and fun way to knit socks that I took some time to write up the pattern for everyone who would like it here on KP.

These are designed for worsted weight, but my second pair was sport weight and they were equally as nice. You can also use sock weight by changing the numbers in the pattern to fit your needle and weight of yarn.

I typically wear short athletic socks and these are about the same weight but are so much prettier!

I added a Mock Cable stitch to the cuff and instep of this pair.

They are soooo pretty! I love my knitted socks!

I think I need to take a break from knitting and give my legs a shave! Giggle, giggle.

These are the type of socks I normally wear.... not any more. My new Village socks are the same weight, but soooo much prettier and nicer to wear!

I buy this product at the hardware store and spray the bottoms of my slippers and socks. I broke my neck once and don't want a repeat. This is invisible... adds just enough "grip" to your soles and your socks and slippers wear much longer!

Thank you! Great pattern! What size needle would you recommend for the DK weight socks? Or would you increase the number of stitches?

Oh man, those are gorgeous. I might just actually start wearing socks again if I had a few pairs of those!

Thanks so much! I printed as I really need to master socks. Made one pair just to see what it was all about but need to become proficient at it.

This seems like a really good pattern. Yours are beautiful! Knitting perfect and color selection superb.

You are one productive lady!

Those are lovely, Amy. I wear my handmade socks with pride, too. I'm using the magic loop method right now for socks made with sockweight. There is always a sock on the needles now. You'll never turn back either. Socks are functional, especially warm, fairly fast to make, and the color and pattern possibilities are endless. Welcome and thanks for the pattern.
