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.

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.

Going forward, the next digest will be released in just a few hours. So if you don't sign up now, you'll also miss everything covered in it too.

Welcome! Everyone!

The Lace Party held in the SWAPS KALs, section on the main forum has been teaching KALs, and other classes for some time. We have decided to open a topic on the Workshop section which will include those lace classes so that they may be mae available permanently with the other workshops already there. The lace party has been and is, a very valuable part of Knitting Paradise so feel free to read all this information, copy it and you are also welcome to keep a copy of any pdf which is posted here. We will have each indiviual class in one place and will tell you who the teacher is. It is not verbatim but each of the teachers has sent me information that she thinks will be helpful for those reading the classes.

We have also brought the workshops that taught lace up to this topic so that all the lace information is together. I hope you can find help here with your lace.
********
There have been non lace classes and kals also taught on the party and they will be posted under a Lace party Heading on the list of workshops previously set up here. I hope, once we get them set up you will find them useful! Designer1234

Thank you. I get the best information and help from KP. What a blessing this site is!

Thankyou! it is good to know that many people feel that way. It has been a long 3 years and lots and lots of work. The lace information will be useful. However it will take me awhile to gather all the information together. We have one very very good class which will be posted thi next week I hope.

LADIES! I WILL BE PUTTING THE FIRST CLASS IN THIS NEXT WHILE.

This isn't a class it is a write up I receive from the teacher of the class which was given as a KAL on the LACE PARTY.

Thankyou for your interest. However I neglected to lock this site as we are not posting on the Workshop section any more. This will just be an information topic and you will be able to read them just as you do the other workshops. There are some wonderful classes about lace and we want to gather them and put them all together here, including the classes that were taught on the workshops. Within the next while (it takes a while to for the teachers to break down their information, get it to me and for me to sort it out and put it in the Lace party TOPIC.

EACH CLASS WILL HAVE ITS OWN TOPIC just like the individual workshops.

I will there fore remove the discussion posts but we appreciate them very much. Once it is opened I will announce it here I will keep you all informed on this thread!
