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:

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting and crochet mailing list distribution. You'll receive a one-time confirmation e-mail. Right after that, the first e-mail with today's digest will be forwarded to you. The signup process is completely automated, so you are just a few minutes away from discovering what our existing users already received earlier today. So you'll get up to speed right away on what's the latest on our website, without any long introductions or other delays.

Going forward, the next digest will be released in just a few hours. So if you don't sign up now, you'll also miss everything covered in it too.

You have reminded me, I sent for this last week and I think it said it would arrive in about 5 days. No sign yet but I don't suppose I should count the weekend. That will be something to look forward to in the mail!

I agree. I received a $10 coupon when I signed up and used it immediately on the Irish Knits magazine. It was originally $12 with $5 shipping to the US. I got it for just $7! I think the $10 incentive is for new subscribers. It's a great deal. And how many catalogs come with free yarn samples! It's like Christmas in August.

I tried to sign up for this catalog and after filling out all of the information I was accepted as a member but was denied a catalog. In fact it stated that I had not requested it and further attempts have gotten me nowhere. In the information requested it asked for my date of birth and I believe that based on this information I am not considered a likely customer. I am really aggravated about this. Any suggestions?

Make sure you also fill out the address form to create an account. Once you do this you will receive an email welcoming you. You will then have 100 points deposited in your account. I was unsure it had accepted my registration as well so I backed it up with a note to customer service however when I went though the motions of placing an order the $10 coupon was automatically applied. I assume I will receive the free catalog and samples because all registrants are eligible. Just try again.

There is a spot at the top of the page that states "no" for wanting a catalog. You have to change it to "yes". Maybe this will help. I just filled it out and my request was accepted.

Had major problems signing up. Three attempts with all fields and sections completed. How long does it take to receive 'welcome email?'

At the very top is a little box that says free catalog. It is set on no, you have to click on it to change to yes, I did not have a problem at all.

Hello everyone, and first of all thanks for all your kind words about our new catalogue! We are so excited to finally have it fully translated into English so it's great to see that you're excited too!

The form can be a little tricky, for the best results, just leave the phone and date of birth fields empty as they tend to cause errors due to format (the DOB must be DD MM YYYY, and the phone number no more than 10 digits - yay for clunky old websites!) Our web elf is off on vacation so he'll get that fixed soon hopefully...

Klokie, all new customers are entitled to a free catalogue, we don't do any checks based on date of birth or anything like that, so it was just a glitch on the site.

We've had so many requests that we're a little behind on sending out the catalogues, so it may take a little longer than we had hoped for you to receive your catalogue, but it should only be a matter of a few extra days...
