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.

Has anyone made a scarf with the Loops & Threads Florence yarn? I bought the beautiful brown with white polka dots silky fabric with the yarn loops at the top to knit. However the loops are very long and the yarn shows when trying to make the ruffled scarves like you do with Sashay. Any help would be appreciated. Zasu

Hi Zasu! Yes I bought some recently and have knitted up several scarves with it. I totally love it! It knits up quickly and looks great! You knit it up just like a Sashay ruffle scarf. I have done it casting on 3, 4 and 5 stitches. All look very pretty just some longer than others. It's really a personal preference if you ultimately want the scarf to wrap around (cast on 3) or just hang down (4 or 5). In addition to the white/brown polka dots, I also got some of the black and white ones and they look great too. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.

Thanks Callie's Mom! I had tried the 5 and 4 stitches per row and the ruffles were so large and stood up like a clown collar. I had started the 3 stitches per row and looks like this will work great. Thanks so much. Zasu

I have made only 2 scarves because that was all the yarn I could find. I can not find it anywhere. Are there any others and where is it sold.
Thanks

Not sure whether there were other colors. Red Heart Boutique Sassy is a fabric one without the yarn at the top. The holes to knit are a lot smaller. I had planned to buy that in the first place. The sassy comes in polka dots and animal prints. I have seen that in JoAnns and online. Good luck. Zasu

Oh my thank you sooooo very much! I was having the same issues!!! My ruffles are too big and the whole thing ended up too short. I was using 6 stitches. I'm going to try 3 now!

That was my first try also. Not only was it so short - it stood up like a clown collar!! Ridiculous. Even four stitches was too much. Enjoy!

If it has a pattern on the back for chevron cowl would you please pm it to me. I want that pattern and cannot find it. It is supposed to be on the back of a loops and threads label.
thank you

There is no pattern on the back of the Florence label. There is a cowl pattern on a free card @ Michaels using Patons Pirouette. It also references a video/tutorial for Pirouette yarn at www.patonsyarns.com/PatonsPirouette . Hope this helps.
