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 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 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.

I received my swap today from Roseanna ( Chameleon3388). First of all a beautiful Christmas greeting card for me. This card is a gorgeous Christmas card which will be a keeper along with other special cards I keep. She sent two cards which represent Winter going into Spring. The one which I especially like has a die cut of a sleigh and reindeer. Id love to have that die. The papers are so pretty and one particular one is a printed vellum and the embellishments are beautiful. Thank you, thank you, Roseanna. I'm so impressed with your work, Roseanna !!!! And very anxious to use those embellishments.

You received some real neat Cards. Your First Card is my Favorite. The Covered Bridge certainly speaks for winter. And the inside let's us dream about Spring. Great Card. I also like the Sleigh in the Forrest. I remember those scenes from Childhood. And the Spring flowers gives us hope it will soon be warmer. Great Cards. And all those Embellishments. I would have been surprised if there was not a butterfly in the selection. You received some real great stuff in the Swap.

Roseanna made beautiful cards. The first card is very nice. I started stamping this year and I can see Roseanna is very skilled in this technique.
I also love the second card, in that brownish grass some fresh green and sunny yellow flowers... Very Spring!
You will enjoy working with that beautiful paper you received. I especially love the sheet on top with the grass and the flower petals inside. Lovely paper.
I understand you are interested in the horse with the sleigh die. It is a lovely Christmas card. Great swap.

The horse and sleigh is an edge lit and I'm not sure yet if it's still available. It's a retired item so I'll have to search a bit. Thank for your kind words.

Wow! LOVE the covered bridge stamp! It makes an awesome card front! Don't know WHY I don't use my stamps. I have a zillion of them - I should use them! Love the front of the other card, too...snowy trees, horse and sleigh, a wonderful winter scene. pretty card! I'm sure you're going to turn the elegant paper embellishments into something wonderful, too! Good job!

Great Job, Roseanna -- interesting how several of us use the blue for winter and green for spring!! Great minds and creativity run on the same track!!

I love both the covered bridge and the horse-drawn sleigh -- difficult to pick which one I like best -- all a very good respresentation and contrast of winter and spring!! I'm now in the mood for Spring!!! LOL

What wonderful embellishments as well -- always neat to see what others have to send.

Love this swap!!
