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.

First name:

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.

(A new newsletter issue is released each week. So if you don't sign up now, you'll miss this week's digest.)

Here is a good beginner keyhole scarf pattern: http://www.hollyklein.com/Dragon_Scale_Keyhole_Scarf.pdf


I am making my second Dragon Scale Key Hole Scarf . The first I made with the slot, but the second I didn't, both are very pretty. These are for holiday gifts. If I have the patience and after the holidays, I would like to make one for myself.

Many thanks to Jessica-Jean and Dreamweaver. I learn so much about knitting, and you both are so kind to respond quickly in a positive way no matter what gets asked. Great life examples.

There's nothing to using the PDFmyURL. If you want the page you're looking at, just click on the link in your favourites, wait a few seconds, and see your pdf! You do have to save it to someplace on your computer, but the rest is free and automatic. I've never had any e-mail from them.

I have a 4gig thumb drive that has plenty of room ... even after I load several thousand pattern files onto it! The portable hard drive was on sale, so I got it ... before I knew how little space is used by patterns!

Another thing I learned from someone on KP is to use the snipping tool on the computer to 'capture' isolated content on a webpage. It's especially useful on pages that are protected so that you can't copy/paste from them.

Back to one of my former topics - does anybody know about putting patterns on the Nook or Kindle. I still am not sure and the girl in the store thought so but I'm not sure they recommend it. Has anybody done it? Does anybody know of somebody who did it?

If you have Office 2007 or newer, put your document into Word, when ready to save, click on File > Save As > and then click on File Type. PDF is already in your program. Simply change the setting from DOC to PDF and it will be saved into that format. I have literally THOUSANDS of patterns I have collected for free over the past few years all saved in PDF on my computer. Whenever I need a pattern for something, I simply go pattern shopping in my own files! I organize into folders: Accessories, Afghans & Blankets, Tablecloths, Potholders, etc. By placing the patterns in proper folders, I can easily locate most anything I want!

If your reader, whether Nook, Kindle or whatever, accepts pdf's you can download them. The problem will be the display. On the Kindle, it displays the entire page on the screen, making it almost impossible to see. The Nook is more user friendly for pdfs from what I hear.

The problem is in the pagination; the readers can only display what is on a page and if it isn't a "reader specific" file (ie. Kindle book) you get the whole page.

On the Nook, does the whole pattern come in multiple pages? I sure wish I could figure it out from the replies that I have received. I don't want to have to buy one to find out and then be disappointed. EVERYBODY is trying to help but I don't feel confident yet. Thank you, everybody.
