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.

It is available for purchase for 595$ According to what I saw on Google. The pattern is probably copyright of the designer.

I like the white ceremony sweaters with the red & blue Scandinavian type design, but when my husband and I saw the team cardigans, we agreed, future ugly sweater contest winners.

If it is the white sweaters you like, you can find many similar Scandinavian style patterns and then just add the flag to the front and the Olympic rings on the back, using and intarsia pattern. I wish they had better pictures of them on the website.

oops, it is the flag and rings on the back, the Polo brand on the front. You get the best view in the video of the male skater.

The only way I would wear that cardigan is with a ski mask cover my entire face so that no-one would recognize me

1st, let me apologize if my comments about the cardigan offended anyone. My aunt, whom is a wonderful person, would love this cardigan. She has closets full of these types of sweaters she orders from QVC.
2nd, I was wrong about the "many Scandinavian style patterns" geez, you'd think theses classic designs would be CURRENTLY in print or free online somewhere, but alas it seems they are all out of print :(

I actually happen to like the cardigan. So those who want to, may be able to invite me to their ugly sweater party. I just sent a note to Ralph Lauren to ask if the pattern would be made available since the sweaters were so expensive and are no longer available. If they respond, I'll post again.

Loved the Dale of Norway Olympic Sweaters. These, not so much, but then I am not a fan of Ralph Loren.

P.S. The video of from sheep to sweater is amazing. Really shows off the beauty of our Columbia Basin; "the other side of the mountains".
