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!

Does anyone have a pattern or suggestions for knitting adult mittens and then lining them with fleece fabric for extra warmth. I have a dear friend who sits through many cold high school football games (Wisconsin - need I say more) watching her son play. Another mom had a pair of these that someone had made, but I was not able to get the pattern. I would love to make these for her since the season is just starting again. Thanks!

You might check out thrummed mittens - they aren't lined with fleece but have a knit in set of yarn loops on the inside of the mittens and you could maybe use a semi-bulky yarn for the loop-lining

Maybe use a man's pattern or make a couple sizes up, then trace it--shaoe on fleece - cut out scantly and sew - no need to treat edges, etc. Hand sew into mitten at cuff just below ribbing.

I see mittens that look like that at local craft show events in Green Bay. They are made with recycled knitted sweaters and lined with fleece. Could that be what you saw? I know there are patterns for them on the web if that is the case.

These was a pattern on here for lined mittens a few months ago. Maybe you can look on search for them. Not fleece it was lined in yarn.

Last winter I found a site where you just traced your finished mitten. Then cut it out in fleece. I use a blanket stitch to sew it, and then I just put it into the mitten and tack it down where the cuff stops and the mitten begins. Hope this helps.

the book Fox,and Geese and Fences-a collection of traditional Maine mittens by Robin Hansen has some wonderful mittens that are lined with bits of roving. I'm planning on doing these for the grands for this winter:)

I actually found a site with the information that I needed. There are two ways to do this depending on whether the thumb is knitted on the front (my preference but more difficult) or side of the mitten. See http://techknitting.blogspot.com/2009/10/lining-mittens-part-2-thumb-on-front.html and http://techknitting.blogspot.com/2009/10/lining-mittens-part-2-thumb-on-front.html. Hope others find this helful! Thanks to TECHknitter.

Where the mitten begins, I knit roving along with the yarn, on some of the stitches. This makes the whole inside of the mitten lined with wool. They are a great seller, and the family loves them. Did this with booties also when the grandkids were young.

is there a link you would recommend for this technique? it would be helpful if i could see exactly how this is done--how the roving is handled and size of needles, etc.

no, this is something that I had seen done many years ago, and I then made up my own version. I think I may have a pair that I have not sold, and will post a picture

The thrummed mittens are great and once you get the hang of it, it is easy...just google thrummed mittens and it should give you a site to get a pattern...I made a pair at a class and just love them..... so warm....the more you wear them they kind of felt inside so they get warmer with wear...

I made double mittens for my children by knitting the first mitten according to pattern directions but don't finish off the tip. Pick up stitches on inside of bottom (hand side) and knit another mitten for lining. Skip making another thumb, just make the hole for the thumb and continue to end of mitten. To finish off just gather all stitches on inside mitten and finish off. Gather stitches on outer mitten, pull tight and catch to inside mitten to hold together. It makes a lot more sense as you work through it. These really are warm.

Good luck, Jean C.
