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.

Here is how to proceed and what to expect:

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting and crochet mailing list distribution. You'll receive a one-time confirmation e-mail. Right after that, the first e-mail with today's digest will be forwarded to you. The signup process is completely automated, so you are just a few minutes away from discovering what our existing users already received earlier today. So you'll get up to speed right away on what's the latest on our website, without any long introductions or other delays.

This is probably section but here goes anyway. I'm sure a lot of you know I work in a store. A lady returned a ball of yarn because it didn't work right. I have been trying to figure out how the yarn misbehaved.

Funny. I'm sure she would have had a reply to that if you had asked!

Maybe it took too many breaks?

Bad yarn! BAD, BAD YARN! Shame! It didn't work right? Wonder if I could take back a couple of relatives for the same reason? Hmmm......

Gosh, I assume she did return the whole ball!! At least, I sure hope so.

She probably didn't know she was talking to a knitter (I wonder if the OP works in a LYS or a big box store that sells yarn). I would say the yarn didn't work right/misbehaves if it split a lot while knitting or I couldn't get gauge for the project I bought the yarn for. Of course, I'd have probably kept it for stash rather then return it.

I work at Walmart and it's sometimes fun to read what peoples reasons for returns. Looking at the returned yarn showed it had been used. We had a TV return because of a fist size whole in the screen.

My guess would be whatever she wanted to make with it wasn't turning out the way she pictured. Or perhaps she found it difficult to work with.

Well, I'll bet that TV didn't work right, either! Probably neither did the fist or foot that went through it!

I'm pretty sure that misbehaving yarn has a lot to do with why I have a fabulous stash! Why she didn't add it to hers I don't understand. I wouldn't be surprised if she need just a smidge and returned the unused yardage, classy.

I was really annoyed by my LYS once when I bought several skeins of yarn for a sweater, and after winding 3-4 skeins into balls, I noticed that the skeins didn't all match. Different dye lots I hadn't noticed in the store. I took them back but she would only accept the ones that hadn't been wound! She didn't have any more of the lot I had wound, and I was sure as heck not going to buy more! I took the partial refund and my nicely-wound balls and went home. Over the years I have used that yarn for hats, scarves, and a really nice pair of slippers.
