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.

Can anyone help me. My husband asked me to make him ear covers to go over his baseball hat. I have looked online and not found any knitted patterns for something like this. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? He wants the ear bans or covers to go over the bill of his hat. He does not ask me to make anything for him as the grandkids keep me busy knitting. So I really want to make this for him. If anyone knows of a pattern it would really help me out. Thanks

I have not seen anything like this but I am always looking for a good cap pattern. These are difficult to find.

But I have a couple of ideas:

My husband, a huge SF Giants fan has a hat has "flaps" that fold up into the hat when not in use. Needless to say, they are thinner material than the hat itself. So I am thinking that such a flap could be made from sock wool and stitched onto his cap. This was not individual flaps but a long flap that reached from ear to ear. I have a similar cap that I got for skiing so I bet a pattern for one exists on-line somewhere.

Differently, how about a head band that covers his ears and the back of his head. He would wear under his hat. It is my experience that men hate to take off their hats so you would not know whether its attached or not. There are many headband patterns that you can google.

i saw one in a catalog to purchase for 4.99, i think it should be easy to replicate. you need to make a headband with a slit for the bill of the hat and just a couple of rows wider over the ears. try knitting this with a dark color for your guy or in camo yarn to hide any mistakes. think horizontially rather than vertical for the headband. it also helps to draw it out. i haven't perfected my pattern yet, due to a sudden illness with my mother, but i have used black sock weight yarn and a size 6 needle. the stitches are tighter and i intend on doubling it for warmth. so far it looks almost identical to the photo i saw. when its done i will gladly share with everyone. please pray for my mothers recovery and if anyone has any soft , cashmere type yarn they'd like to donate to me for gloves and socks for mom i'd be very appreciative. she gets very cold after dialysis and her hands and feet are so icy, she's in her late 70's and i want to put something soft on her. God bless each and every one.

I've seen them for sale in a catalog or two that has come to the house, but I can't remember which one - perhaps L. L. Bean?? Good luck. They look clever.
