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.

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.

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 and crocheters.

I'm beginning to loose count now on how many I've done. I think this is number 6. I've caught the Gypsycream bug and it's very very contagious, so beware. I love every one of these little creatures and I insert a plastic heart into every tummy just to prove the point. Little Rosie-Lea is off to a new home next week. A coffee coloured Inbetweenie on the needles now. Thank you Pat.

Awww.... very sweet. Yep, if this is #6, then you are hooked! Just think of EFerg. She's up to 100+ now!

Awwwwwwwwwww, she is so sweet. And, yes, Gypsycream patterns are very addictive. I am making blankies and memory bears now and when I finish them I am going to settle back and do some Furry Friends and some puppies and kittens. Just for the children at the hospital and the Abuse Center. No rush, no thinking, no trying and failing, just so cute furry little lovies for the children to have and to hold and think about the fat old lady with the "thing in her nose" to help her breathe and the smile on her face. I try so hard to be happy and make them feel comfortable with me and sometimes the ladies tell me that the toy has helped one of the children break through and start talking. That is a winner for my heart!

She's so cute. Knitting my first one, and addicted already! Had a lucky find at my local charity/thrift shop, 5 x 50g of Sirdar Funky Fur Magic in a deep pink. My first will be going to my mum, I've been through some very difficult times over the last 18 months, and she's been fantastic support. Think I'm going to take a leaf out of DonnieK's book and donate my second one to give a child in need of a hug x

I'm unable to get out of my house but my lovely mum is also an avid charity shop browser. She brings back lots of bits and pieces which I unpick and up cycle into other items. I am totally in love with all of Gypsycream's pattens. Pat is amazing and such a lovely lady. Like you, I owe my mum such a lot. She's been through such awful trials with me. Aren't mums lovely. At 87 years old today, she's very proud of my achievements in the last 5 years since my accident. I have great admiration for Donniek and always feel very proud when she comments on my bears. She's a tonic. I'm going to start donating soon to 'Headway' a charity for brain injured people like myself. The bears are welcoming gifts to these people, young and old alike.

Hello Vera. It's so nice to meet you. I ALWAYS use GYPSYCREAM patterns. They are so easy. You must try one of her bears. She also designs other cuddly animals and is always busy with making different ones for us addicts. Type in Gypsycream at the top of the page and you will be directed to her.
