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.

I too just finished Lichen. It took about 4 hours of knitting. This pattern must be blocked. I used Malabrigo worsted on a 10.5 needle. Fast and fun!


Is this pattern free & where can it be found please?

Lichen is not a free pattern. I bought the download on Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lichen-5
Well worth the $6.00. I see lots of X-mas gifts in the future :) :)

Okay you evil people, I have now purchased two more shawl patterns and have a free scarf pattern. So many patterns, so much yarn, so little time! And all because someone posted she wanted a quick and easy shawl pattern.

I'm also looking for a shawl that is pretty, bit not too complicated. I'm going for the afternoon tea, but a little bigger and finished with fan and feathers instead of the branches to get the nice edge.

Very cute pattern - and Congrats on your upcoming wedding! Mine is at 6 pm. Don't want anything too heavy, as the weather is predicted to stay on the warm side. Good luck with yours!


The kudzu shawlette is a very cool design. It was kicking my butt in a few places (I've never knit a shawl before, so... right), but I've got it sorted out. I had to get mostly-cotton yarn (my mom can't tolerate wool next to her skin at all... I can't, either. Fortunately KnitPicks has this awesome cotton modal/acrylic blend that is softer than you could imagine). I gave my mom a scarf about 10 years ago that she loved (store-bought). It was wide & long & soft & warm. She wore it to visit her sister & her sister's Shih-Tzu (spelling?) ripped it up. My mom was devastated. I've been searching for a replacement ever since & never found one. Scarves shrank width-wise so that anything wider automatically was blanket-sized... :( So, now that I knit, I went nuts trying to find a wider scarf (which wasn't a blanket) & didn't really find one, so I went with a shawlette made in a really soft, warm fiber. I think she'll like it & it'll keep her warm. In MA, winters can get fairly cold.
Good luck with your shawl! Even at 6pm, you should be fine with something light, unless they blast the A/C. :)
Thanks... I'm not bothering with a shawl for my wedding. It's at 11:30am (on a Sunday, so it couldn't be too late) and my gown is lined & has cap sleeves (I didn't want to be yet another bride who spends the whole day pulling her dress up), so the A/C would have to be way too high in order for me to have problems. :)

Try Afternoon Tea. It knits up quickly and is free. If you google it you will get the pattern

I don't know if anyone else posted this, couldn't read all the pages (no time), but I have a very easy pattern that looks nice, (not fancy) and I usually make it for a baby blanket when I'm in a rush. I'm sure that you knit a lot faster than I do also, as I usually crochet. You begin with 6 stitches and increase one stitch per row, till you get to the width you want. It is all knit no purl.
You co 6. knit 2 rows, next row,and every row till you get to width you want, k3, yo,knit to end of row
