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.

Hello,
I'm a relatively new knitter. Started a year ago after finding out I was going to be a grandma for the 1st time. ALL grandmothers knitt...right?
So far I've made dozens of scarves, a baby blanket, a pair of baby booties, a baby hooded sweater, 3 baby & 1 adult hat(s). The last was a pumpkin hat..which turned out to be matching pumpkin hats for my daughter & grandson...only because the 1st hat I made was big enough for an adult. LOL Ended well though, her Facebook profile pic for the last month has been of herself & my little grandson wearing their punkin hats.
My adult children,( I have 5, 2 daughters, a son and 2 son-in-laws), began to take me seriously when I made the hooded sweater.
Now one of my son-in-laws has requested a beanie beard hat for Christmas. I'm sure some of you have heard of beanie beards... they're essentially a beanie with a knitted beard attached. My daughter & I prefer the short beard & mustache.
All of that said...I'm looking for beanie beard patterns....and FREE is good!
I'm also looking for a cute n' easy slipper pattern. I like the bootie style for adults. Have 3 patterns that I found on Ravelry.com Have made 2 of them & not fond of either.
Any awesome adult slipper/bootie patterns out there??
Thanks so much!
Lori

Hi Lori

Loved your work and your lovely family. Great Job.

Loved the scarf and wondered what the yarn is. I love the various shades of green and blues. I don't know where your hiding but I am in Oz. If you can send me the store I will buy some

regards Eleanor

The store is called Knitter's Kove in Colorado Springs, Co....however it went out of business several months ago. The yarn was pure wool. Don't remember the weight or brand. Sorry. How's the wizard these days??
