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 and crochet 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/crochet 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.

Hi everyone! I am excited about this workshop, does anyone have any questions?
May 21, 2014 23:45:19   #
Tell me, everyone, what yarn have you chosen?

I have been trying to find the Kid Seta in teal, as I have located a seller for the Tili Thomas and believe this would look stunning on the red head I intend to give the sweater to.

You can do this design without the Tilly as well, it just adds a little bit of bling. If you can only find the Kid, it will be equally beautiful.

This sounds like a good idea for me. I am a beginner knitter and have only done shawls, hats and scarves. I am looking forward to knitting your beautiful cardigan, but I was concerned about using 2 colors, since I have never done that before. I will probably stick with 1 color. Thanks Tamara! :-)

Have found the Kid Seta Teal from "Alpaca Direct" and the Tili Thomas from Ravelry member. May need to play catch up when received but looking forward to making this beautiful sweater.

It is a big project, this workshop will be open for a while.

I chose Cascade Kid Seta. Paradise Yarn is currently having all Cascade yarn at 20% off. I ordered & today I received an email saying it is backordered (I think all of you were ordering this yarn!) Hopefully it will arrive soon...

Aloft from Knit Picks will also work nicely for this design if people are finding it hard to get the Kid Seta.

Im in, however i'm not sure when i can start as i have too many projects to finish, but ill start as soon as i can. Would any laceweight yarn do or do you have to use the mohair/kid silk sort?
May 26, 2014 12:54:31   #
I suppose any would work, but I do suggest something with a bit of drape and fuz :-) A merino would make a different look. Keep to a light two ply so that your lace holes don't close up.

Good morning! How is everyone? Are you all waiting for yarn or have some of you started?

I am waiting for yarn, it should be delivered this week to my home, but I will not return home until June 1st. Will have limited internet connection at that time, but have the printed instructions and will start as soon as home and unpacked. Anxious to start on the project.

Hi everyone! sorry I haven't been around - have been going for some tests and when I get home I am ready for a nap, then our GD has been over and on and on.

I see things are pretty quiet. I hope you will ask questions and join in with the workshop. Have any of you started your cardigans? I hope you will drop by and let us know -- I realize that the sweater is a pattern and some of you might be getting on with it - so if you are, or are not. Let us know. I will try to get around a bit more.

You might have heard that i have had to postpone all the rest of the workshops do to health issues for both of us. I hope to be able to
start new workshops in the fall, but just don't have the time or the ability to start or look for new workshops. I think I am ready for a break - We have put on fifty plus workshops and hundreds of people have either taken or done our classes - I am very proud of that. I want you all to pass the word that each and every workshop will be left in the Section permanently for your information.

Take care -- I will try to drop by tomorrow.
