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 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 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:

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting and crochet mailing list distribution. You'll receive a one-time confirmation e-mail. Right after that, the first e-mail with today's digest will be forwarded to you. The signup process is completely automated, so you are just a few minutes away from discovering what our existing users already received earlier today. So you'll get up to speed right away on what's the latest on our website, without any long introductions or other delays.

Going forward, the next digest will be released in just a few hours. So if you don't sign up now, you'll also miss everything covered in it too.

Yesterday at the Salvation Army Thrift Store, the salesperson was crocheting a Baby Blanket, I liked the pattern easy and different rows(use up Stash) she said to Google and I did. Just did"Brain Dead Pattern"and there it was, for sale @5.00.
Is there another pattern, as easy to crochet? It was mostly double crochets and shells.Can not pay $5.00
Thank you ladies.You are always in the know.

I am the one who PM'd you.
I did not jump on you...I was informing you.
Here is my PM....
Just to let you know,
it is illegal to make the pattern into a pdf and post it on the forum.
It is in violation of copyright laws as well as the forum rules.
Please contact Admin to have your download link removed.
Thank you.

Sorry if you feel I was being "harsh".
Appears not to be your first time.

"Misbehavior on the forum" is an accurate statement.
Your past posts show that you have done this repeatedly.
As well as trying to avoid notice of such misbehavior.
.........
The first time it was brought to your attention, you stated you would have liked a PM instead of the open forum.
Now, with me, I send you a PM (not knowing about prior happenings), and you bring it into the open forum.

I made this for my MIL last year for Mother's Day. It really is easy and works up fast. Have fun with it.

Thank you ladies for all the help. I will continue to look where I saw that price for the pattern. I am so sorry about
the PDF situation,when someone was trying to help.
I just realized the mistake, I did not go down the whole page, saw Ravelry "Buy patterns" went there and mistook Jordan Scarf for the Brain Dead.
Thank you all, again and sorry again for all this mess.
