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.

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.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more knitting-related material (pictures, patterns, tips) than contained in all knitting books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

You'll be able to talk and share ideas with more knitters than you could meet if you attended all the largest trade shows. And you'll be able to do all that without leaving your house!

Don't delay! Join the best knitting and crochet community on the Internet.

I am knitting a helix scarf using 20 stitch cast on and short rows. It looks great but there are no suggestions for length. Given the curly nature of the scarf I don't want it to be too short as it might end up bouncing in a person's face. Any help would be appreciated.

I have just finished that scarf......mine is 30 inches (roughly 76cms.) but it is all a matter of choice,so easy to do I could have gone on knitting!

Throw a soft tape measure around your neck, Sherry and judge it that way if you're not wrapping it, etc.

45" goes down to my waist line, so probably less in your case.......?.......

Good luck, sweetie!

Goog luck, sweetie

This was a free pattern I found online:

Spiral Scarf Pattern

100g worsted weight yarn (suggested yarn was Noro Kureyon) plus needles suggested for that yarn.
You may use whatever yarn you choose as long as you use the needles suggested for that weight.

cast on 15 stitches
knit 2, turn knit 2 back
knit 4, turn knit 4 back
knit 6, turn knit 6 back
knit all the way across the row (15 stitches)

repeat the above 4 rows. The scarf will spiral after the first few inches. Use up all your yarn. Bind off and weave in ends.

P. S. I used Plymouth Encore for mine and they turned out really nice plus they are machine washable.
