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:

These guys are really cute, but I'm not sure that animals should be dressed.
I KNOW that my cat,"Spats" would never allow this for himself, but he might enjoy seeing pugs in hats!

Here is the link to the article: (with other styles!)

So ugly, it's cute. Especially love the look on the pug's face with the batman hat. Looks like it's saying "Why are you making me do this? Don't you love me anymore?"

I agree.. I think that is exactly what they are saying. I read the article and it seems as though Pugs have some sensitive ears... that is the REASON for the hats... the reason for the FUNNY hats?! Well, that is for the owner/knitter to say.

I can relate... I have two boxers who love to play in the deep snow. They do have fur coats, but only one layer as opposed to many breeds with an under and over coat... similar to the Pugs here. They DO get cold and LOVE their coats. If they are out playing for a long time, their coats get damp and sometimes come off. They will come to the door and ask for another... I put a dry one on them and off they go again!

The GOOD thing is that these pugs are animals.. they neither know or care what they look like.... silly or no harm done! LOL

Amy, your girls are precious. Now that you have tackled and perfected socks, you definitely need to make sweaters for your fur babies. I believe someone here on KP put a few patterns up earlier this year. Would love to see what your creative mind comes up with!

Absolutely adorable. I too have a pug and she is my best buddy. i don't think she would be very keene with doing a fashion show but I could probably get away with putting one on her before she would rebel. LOL
