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.

Yesterday evening I received some beautiful cards from Elfie. Theme of this month is: It's Winter but Spring is coming.
Elfie made some wonderful cards, considering she is having a lot of problems with her hand and is in pain a lot. I admire you for continuing making cards and I hope 2017 is going to be the year all issues with your hand will be completely healed.

The first card is lovely and when you open it it's surprisingly a three fold card. Lovely saying inside.
The second card is a lot heavier than the first card. Big surprise when you open this card, a folded middle part is springing out. But not only there are some great pictures, the actual inside is decorated to with embossing, snowflakes, flowers and a saying. When you look at this card there is no doubt winter is leaving and spring is in the air. Absolutely stunning card. I certainly would love the pattern and/or the "how to" for this card. I was not going to tell which card is my favorite but I might have given away which card is my favorite.

Elfie included a great bunch of embellishments; pictures for cards, lots and lots of cut outs and the pattern of the three fold card she made last months card swap.

Thank you for these great cards and all the embellishments.

Beautiful cards. We had our first snow last night - a nice snow, didn't cover my driveway. But I am looking forward to Spring and the birds on the cards were a reminder that we will be seeing Spring before we know it. Lovely embellishments and Amazing ways the cards open to reveal their messages. Just lovely.

Stunning is the perfect description for the last card. And wow for the embellishments. You did an outstanding job with your swap, Elfie..
I,too, would like to know how to make that last card. And I didn't know that Elfie is having hand problems. Sorry to hear that and hope things get better for her. Happy New Year to all of my Swap friends. I hope we all promote peace and love to all those around us and that we remember that we get back what we give. May our God richly bless our lives in 2017.

Here I am, Birdwatcher and I've been watching and feeding my birds outside and then I have the JOY of looking at these beautiful birds in Elfie's cards!! Very beautiful and professional looking cards!! I Love them both, but the 2nd one with the cabin and the two birds outside saying Brrrrr is just beautiful -- my favorite! And would you look at those embellishments -- I now know who is "Queen" of die cuts -- Elfie has them all!! LOL -- they are all wonderful and I'm sure Anneke will find great use for them!!

Beautiful swap -- My Cardinals and Blue Jays visit me for feed all day long!!

Super lovely cards, Elfie!!! You did a wonderful job! Hands down, my favorite is the cardinal card, and not even because of the pop up part in the center. I love the OUTSIDE of the card most! I love woodsy-rustic-nature-animals. Love feeding the birds/critters. The zillion! how awesome would that be to create lovely things!!! Anneke is going to have FUN!!!!! You did GREAT, Elfie!
