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.

This is what I have been working on. Now, it is next to impossible to get the yarn.

I know what you mean. ACMoore where I am in NY gets a truck delivery every Thursday. I am there at 8am to see if they got any more. I did find some in the mill ends bags. All the same color but I can use it. Plus with the 50% off coupon it cost 3.00 that makes each one only .50 each. Score! You might want to ask your local yarn shop or departement when they get their next shippment in. I would be there when they open..

i love your ruffled scarves... I have made some recently but they are not as pretty as yours... I love the yarn you have used..

My friend was wearing something similar the other day and she said a friend from Spain gave it to her, she had made it herself.. It was very pretty

I think if you post the yarn brand and type on here, someone might have extra in a stash.

I was on this web site today 12-21-11 and thay said that they did have this yarn in stock.
The starbella brand has the color I think you want. I think it is Canyon Surprise, had blues, greens brown. Hope it is what you are looking for...
Although only packed in 3 balls per package at a cost of $20+. Still the cost works out to be about 6.75 prior to shipping costs. About the same I have paid for some of mine..

Here is a link to a site that sells similar yarn...

The name of what this site sells that is comparable to starbella is called Flamenco. They have a new one called "Salsa" that is absolutely beautiful for making these scarves and have a nice chenille edging on it. I order from them all of the time now. It is much easier online than running out to the store and find they are out of stock. I get my order in 2 days and all of their proceeds goes to a ministry to help women in poverty stricken countries.

If you do not want to purchase the required amount of 4 skeins, let me know. I am going to purchase more and am willing to share my order. Once it comes in I will forward your portion to you. We can do this through "Private Message" and Pay Pal so that none of your personal information is out in the open for all to see.

Be Blessed this Christmas Season,

THis yarn was so popular that Crafts 2000 where I shop sold out by Dec. 20. I hope they restock. I bought two skeins, but wasn't sure I'd know what to do with them. I made scarves and think I might make more.

I have used another yarn called Flora and I am not happy with the results. I like what I see out of Starbella and will look for it. Thanks.

I have not had a problem finding this yarn. If you live in Phoenix, Family Arts on Missouri and 7th Street had a great selection last time I was there. Also in Pinetop AZ, the Yarn and More shop had some great colors. Hope this helps if you live in AZ.

Thanks for the names of the 2 AZ stores. New to Buckeye, and haven't found yarn shops yet.

I get this yarn directly from in turkey. shipping is only 7.99 from turkey to usa. Don't know if this way would be cheaper for you but worth research
