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.

Photo 1: Sweater with attached skirt in lilac. Hat, purse, and boots in lilac with deep purple furry yarn.

Photo 2: Same outfit as above, but with deep purple furry jacket.

Photo 3: This is a self-striping bright crayon colored yarn - love this yarn! Made a one-piece jumpsuit with pleated pant legs. Added a long tossle cap with a big pom-pom.

Photo 4: Knit the top for this dress in the "furry" metallic yarn (See one of the Tea Party Princess dresses), then switched to the self-striping crayon colored yarn for the full skirt. Made a "furry" hat brim and the crown in crayon colors.

Photo 5: Turquoise jumpsuit with multi-colored trim in open lacy stitch pattern at neckline, sleeves, and bottom of pant legs.

Photo 6: Same jumpsuit as above, except added a multi-colored jacket and big brimmed hat.

Photo 7: One of my favorites! White with pink and lavender "spots" - two piece PJ's, with short eyelash trim in lavender in stripes from neckline to waist. White pants with 3 rows of sparkly eyelash trim on the pant legs. White slippers with sparkly lavender pom-poms.

Just saw the PJ's. That picture wasn't up yet. That is just darling and I like the jacket, hat, jumpsuit as well. You find the best yarns. It takes so little to make the outfit special...

Another fabulous wardrobe collection. I'm sure you've motivated many grannies to supply some lucky little girls with these lovely outfits for their dollies. I will be one for sure. Great niece and her cousin got to visit the AG shop last year to pick their dollies so she will be getting hers for Christmas and my gr dau who is just 2 will be getting a baby doll and some preemie outfits to star and her AG wardrobe will be collected in hiding till she's ready for the more grown up doll.
One quick question though - WHERE do you find your lovely trim yarns. Is it an on-line source or are you lucky enough to have a LYS that stocks it.
Thanks Norah

Those are amazing. You have been very busy. Now I have to get the printer color ink today as soon as the men leave that are cleaning our ducts. An added expense for those of us that live in the northland. It does save on the heating bill for the whole winter not to mention the dust. Then I have more time to knit if I don't have to dust every day. Elaine you are so awesome. Boy, the girls are going to love all the pictures. They will keep me busy knitting the outfits for their dolls. I also love them for my doll collection. Yes, grandma has dolls, even AG and their clones.

Ladyfingers, these AG outfits are awesome! Are they patterns you have given us in the past? You are so creative. If they are new, are you willing to share? They are cute, cute, and too cute!
