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.

We recently got a new recliner and I was going to crochet arm covers and also make one for the back top where my husband's head rests against it. My hubby said just to buy some hand towels and they would work just fine. I did that and found some in a color that blends right with the chair and they have been working just fine. If I were going to make them, I would just crochet rectangular pieces in the size required for the chair. Then use the little upholstery screw things (don't know what they are called) to keep the towels (or crochet pieces) in place.

Are you asking for covers for the arms and backs of chairs, typically called antimacassars or chair sets? Or are you asking for covers for the entire chair?
Thanks,
Shirley

I also place one in the seat of his chair, and wash them all frequently.

Hi Shirley, sorry I should have been more specific. Yes it is just the covers for the arm of the chair. Thanks

Depending on what you are actually looking for you can look at doily patterns. Years ago my grandmother bought a new rocker and wanted to cover the arms. We looked through her different doily books and found a pinwheel pattern that she liked that made a 14 inch doily. That is when we found out that my pinwheel turned a different direction than Grammy's. I crochet left handed and she was right handed. We put the doilies on her chair so that they turned toward her because she felt like she was being hugged when she sat in the chair.
