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.

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.

This is done in different colors but the pattern looks like the picture.



The pattern here is free, but make sure you read the comments underneath where people seem to be having problem with Row 2 - some solutions have been suggested, but I've not tried it myself ...

I went on eBay and bought 9 vintage Leisure Arts pamphlets for $20 which is a lot better than $9.99 for one. Ripple Parade was one of them. There are some others listed on eBay. I'll let y'all know for whether this is the pattern when I receive them.

I think I did it !!

I used the drawing in the image Jeffrey posted assuming that:
A dot is a chain,
the V sign stands for 2 double crockets in the same stich,
the V sign with an arrow below stands for 2 double crockets in between the 2 double crochets TWO rows below.

Change color each two rows.

I tried to write instructions but I do not know if my English is good enough so also look at the drawing in the image jeffrey posted.

I started with 40 chains (ch) as in the drawing (use multiple of 20 to make a bigger one).

ROW 1 (for 40 ch)
1 double crochet (dc) in 4th ch from hook,
3 ch, skip 3 stiches (st),
2 dc in next st,
3 ch, skip 3 st,
in next st do: 2 dc - 3 ch - 2 dc,
3 ch, skip 3 st,
2 dc in next st,
3 ch, skip 3 st,
2 dc in next, skip 3 st, 2 dc in next st,
3 ch, skip 3 st,
2 dc in next,
3 ch, skip 3 st,
in next st do: 2 dc - 3 ch - 2 dc,
3 ch, skip 3 st,
2 dc in next st,
3 ch, skip 3 st,
2 dc in next st,
Turn

ROW 2
3 ch,
2 dc in 2nd ch in row below (in between the 2 groups of 2 dc),
3 ch, 2 dc in 2nd ch in row below,
3 ch, 2 dc in 1st ch in row below,
3 ch, 2 dc in 3rd ch in row below,
3 ch, 2 dc in 2nd ch in row below,
3 ch, 2 dc in 2nd ch in row below,
2 dc in 2nd ch in row below,
3 ch, 2 dc in 2nd ch in row below,
3 ch, 2 dc in 1st ch in row below,
3 ch, 2 dc in 3rd ch in row below,
3 ch, 2 dc in 2nd ch in row below,
3 ch, 2 dc in 2nd ch in row below,
Turn

ROW 3 AND FOLLOWING
3 ch,
repeat 2 times: 2 dc in between 2 dc two rows below, 3 ch,
in the 3 ch of the line below do: 2 dc - 3 ch - 2 dc,
repeat 2 times: 3 ch, 2 dc in between 2 dc two rows below,
repeat 2 times: 2 dc in between 2 dc two rows below, 3 ch,
in the 3 ch of the line below do: 2 dc - 3 ch - 2 dc,
repeat 2 times: 3 ch, 2 dc in between 2 dc two rows below,
turn.

The beauty of this pattern is in the color combination. The ones I used are not well combined but I just wanted to make a test.
Final result

Row 1

Row 2

Row 3

Row 4

DS in ds two rows below

The V stitch is 1 double crochet, chain 1, 1 double crochet in the same place.

I see on the Lacy Chevron that on the cover it says Planned for one afghan and scrap for the other. I see the scrap one uses 5 contrasting colors and the Planned uses 4. So, I'm thinking the Scrape with 5 colors is the one like the Amish ( Mary) is doing?
