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.

Has anyone seen the Hedgehog mittens on the Morehouse Farm website?
I can't figure out the pattern used for the back of the mittens. Anyone seen this pattern? I don't want to spend $24 just to find out how they made the little spikes.
Here's the link.

Those do look interesting but I wouldn't buy it for that price without a bit more info to them. Maybe you could search for something similar on a free pattern site and save that money.

The spikes are actually bobbles. I saw this on another hedgehog pattern for a stuffed toy.

I found a little blog about the mittens and they are knitted bobbles.

Should be a cute pair of mittens for a child! :thumbup:

They are really cute but I can't quite justify the price either - maybe one of us will find something similar on the net

You can buy just the patterns from Morehouse Farm and not the expensive kits. I admit some of the patterns are a bit pricey, but so darn cute.

Those look like the '''raspberry''' stitches to me; There's a fun video on it, too. You work in the front, turn, work in the back, turn again......finish it up or move on.....

Flat stitches, though have to be converted to '''in the round''' work, so if this pattern is '''in the round''' and you can't convert (I can), make them in the flat row work mode, eh, or find the conversion how to/s?

Good luck!

Oh I agree that they are cute. I have looked at that pattern for my BFF. She teaches K and would be the hit of the class for sure.
But I also cannot afford the prices they ask on tht web site. Just toooooooo pricey for alot of us.

But they are cute and unique.

If anyone figures it out add my name to the list to send it to.

I'm with LEE1313. The website is expensive although I would love to do the pattern.

I am presently crocheting a pair of mittens that has a very similar pater all over except the cuff and thumb -- For me iit is a very simple combination of Treble and single crochet and then a row of single crochet..... not sure how to do that in a knit pattern???? what about a popcorn stitch or a bobble stitch???? Cute mitts - hope you can find what you need.

I agree with the earlier suggestion, think you knit for example
knit 4 stitches
turn purl 4 stitches
turn knit 4 stitches
turn purl 4 stitches
turn knit across until next group of stitches
hope this makes sense
shame we cant all club together and buy the pattern and share it amongst us that paid a percentage.

Sounds like a good idea

The pattern is the "Raspbrry Stitch" - The raspberry stitch calls for purl 3 together and knit 1, purl 1, knit 1 into the same stitch. you can see this on youTube.

Good Morning Major,

So if I just take a basic mitten pattern and use the raspberry st on the top side, not the palm, I should be able to make the Hedgehog??
I am sure I can find that st on Youtube.
Thanks for the idea. Just think it is so darn cute.
