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.

E-mail address:

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.

(The next digest will be released in just a few hours. So if you don't sign up now, you'll miss everything covered in it.)

Merry Christmas! Here is my new hat pattern I am offering it for FREE as a Christmas gift as a thank you to all my dear KP friends whom I have laughed with, cried with, and loved this year!


This fun to knit hat started out as an experiment in the Bohus Stitch knitting! It knits up quickly and is very warm. You can use up some of your leftover yards of yarn for the different stripes and the Bohus stitch. The main color will take less than 100 yards. The hat features easy ribbing, then a pretty simple stripe pattern, then in the center is the Bohus pattern stitch which incorporates color and purl stitches to add texture. You only use 2 colors at a time in any row. You finish with a repeat of the stripe pattern then, it is decreased to the top! There--you are done!


The hat can be sized to fit babies, and small, medium or large heads by the weight of the yarn used, and the stitch count used. I am not giving finished measurements because there are so many variables to try.

Needles and notions; A set of double pointed needles to work top decreasing area, and circular needles to work the hats main body. If using-- fingering weight yarn use size 5 needle; sport weight yarn use size 6 needles; and worsted weight yarn use size 7 needles. Yarn needle to weave in ends.

Yarn color choices—100 yards of Main color—dark turquoise, and about 30 yards each of red, gold, and royal blue yarn for striping and Bohus sequences. Use either--fingering, sport or worsted weight yarns. The heavier the yarn the less stitches you need to fit and the lighter the yarn the more stitches you will need.

I have the pattern available for free on Craftsy and Ravelry. (But on Etsy --the only one that charges a fee--it is for .20cents. Their minimum charge--I guess they don't allow free things!)
