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.

E-mail address:

It's FREE, and you'll receive my first e-mail right away. Also, you'll get instant access to the most recent topics on our knitting forum: hundreds of great tips from other knitters.

For years, my dad has suffered from chronic headaches. He went to many doctors, chiropractors, pain specialists, and more, anyone he could find to try to help, with little, short-term, or no relief.

Finally, a physical therapist has been able to help him!

She is expecting a baby in December, and I asked Dad if he'd like me to knit something for the baby. He chose the Baby Yoda Sweater:

I used KnitPicks Crayon boucle yarn in Lime:

The sweater went knitted up very easily, and I love the texture of the boucle. And it's so soft and light! The only thing I didn't like was weaving in the ends--the boucle made it tough for me to follow a thread.

The sweater has inner and outer ties to wrap around the baby, so it should fit for a long time (as far as baby clothes go, that is). :)

The pattern reminds me of the baby undershirts from long ago. I love the color you chose.

Glad your Dad is getting some relief. I love this sweater and his therapist is going to be thrilled with it.

How very nice and lovely colour too. I remember years ago when baby vests were made in this way with ties.

What a delightful baby sweater!! It's a beautiful gift that will certainly be appreciated. Thank you for sharing the pattern, and I must say I like your color choice more than the color pictured with the pattern. Not sure I would have been tempted to try it, but now that I've seen your choice I would like to try one for our little one.
