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.

Lots of places have it listed as a pale pink- if you google some of the doll patterns, they tell you the color and type of yarn they used. That may help.

I discovered that the winter season is actually the best time to find those colors. Sometimes they are " labeled" under the category if " fishermans".
I'm told this is considered " a winter yarn" . Sounded silly to me. I take a knitting class at my LYS. A fellow knitter was looking for a " flesh color" for an edging. This is what we were told.

I often see pictures of dolls knitted/crocheted using this color of yarn on the "Pictures" section. You might want to check with one of them as to where they buy their yarn :~). There's one there today under the title "meet nicki."

Don't mean this rude, but what color do you call flesh? reminds me of my biracial niece doing some coloring, my sister asked her about the colors, then asked her "what color am I ?" tiara looked at her, thought about it and said "peach"... We still get a chuckle out of this.
Really, what do you call flesh, light, medium, dark, we come in all colors..

I've found that a lot of doll patterns don't specify the skin color. Probably because there are so many options.

I found a yarn called apricot that fit my vision of what colorI wanted. Only it was too expensive. Later found a beige with a pinkish blush to it. That's what I'll be using. The yarn is Bertaini Relax & is a DK weight.

I have Bernat baby yarn that I use to make doll faces. I get it at Walmart, when you see it stock up thoughts it is hard to find as you know.

I remember reading on a site that the designer suggested a Vanna yarn; she said it seemed to her to be the best for skin tone. Of course, it depends on whether that would meet your weight requirement--not to mention what shade of skin tone you need . . . . I think I have the site saved somewhere--will see if I can unearth it.

Found my reference:
It was in a "Base Amigurumi Pattern" and she said "I prefer Vanna White's Beige yarn for all skin tones, as this is the most natural looking skin colored yarn I have ever come across." (It's on the web at http://geekcentralstation.blogspot.com/2011/06/base-amigurumi-pattern.html if you want to see the pattern.)
