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.

Hadn't thought about making that pattern into a scarf but I think I will. I have lots of scraps and I am making hats and scarves for kids who live in a colder area than I do.

A few years ago, when I first determined I would learn to knit, we went to a local historical farm for their Sheep to Shawl event. Everyone was dressed in period attire and there were sheerers, spinners, weavers, knitters and one lone crocheter.

The wool she was working with was beautiful and she was making a triangular shawl using this pattern of stitches. She had been working on it for some time after another lady had gotten her started in one corner. She sat there for the longest time trying to remember how to start it so she could show me and I went directly to the yarn store and bought the most beautiful green cotton.

It was a dream to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Someone admired it and I ended up giving it away and it has never seen the light of day since. :(

Thank you for posting this link. The woman I learned from said it was a generational hand-me-down pattern from oral instructions rather than written ones.

I've kept the initial practice swatch to reverse engineer when the time came. It makes a truly lovely shawl.
