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.

Dear Friends,

I´m just crochetting the "Eliska" white dress I published it here in KP in the past. Maybe you remember for it.
I work on it for one Lady of you. She ordered it for her granddaughter.

I hope I will be able to concentrate as much as I will be able to write this dress as a PATTERN too


I VERY APOLOGIZE I did not talk in last days.
I was not able to think about anything like only about our farm home.
We got a letter on Monday last week, where the court says that the execution will not be stopped how we asked the loan company in the begin of August 2011.
This means the loan company CAN sell our farm home as forced sale of property. And the money from the sale will get the loan company first and then the mortgage bank will get the rest of the sale. And we will loose everything by this and we will have to pay rest of money to the mortgage bank to the amount they give us in the begin.
The man from the who wrote the first letter for us wrote an appeal to county court for us what we can send there to max 15 days. We will send this letter tomorrow. His "law" service is FOR FREE thank The God !
This maybe could "give us" maybe 2-3 months of time or maybe only 14 days or so. Nobody knows...
And we paid over 500,000 CZK to the mortgage bank, but this amount = almost everything is their interest first...
Only about 150,000 CZK we have "paid" of our 1,500,000 CZK mortgage now...
We still pay both of these, but how I wrote in the last KP post : each day has only 24 hours...
I would need to sell over 1000 patterns for to pay our farm home OUT from the execution...
That is why I´m not able to sleep and concentrate as much as I would want...

I LOVE YOU ALL here in KP !

And I THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for my little Etsy shop... YOU ALL gave me a new hope with the Etsy shop...

Special THANK is for my "new Mummy" - Jan (Superjan)

We will be working on this one very soon.
While Lidka makes the custom order she takes photos and makes notes.
Then together, from opposite sides of the world (thanks to our amazing internet) we conjure up a wonderful pattern for everyone.

Lidka writes it up in her way which has improved immensely since we started in Sept or Oct last year.
And then I endeavour to write it in a way we can all understand.

I have noticed some Central European patterns in Ravelry with the same really cute terminology like Lidka's. Makes me smile.

Here is one of them:

'' Chain 3 up in the air"...isn't that priceless?♥♥♥

So Eliska pattern will be done very soon....

:) :)

excellent! It is such a sweet dress. Bless you for helping hertoo!!

Oh my dear. I am so sorry for your farm situation. This is happening all over the US and the world. The bankers are a terrible group of people with no human feeling. If you can write the pattern I will happily pay you for a copy - as I'm sure many others here would.
Peace, Love & Hope be with you,
Jan 17, 2012 22:03:29   #
I'm so sorry to hear about your property and hope that everything turns around in your favor.

Beautiful little girl and she's wearing your beautiful creation. My heart and prayers are with you at this time of your troubles. God Bless you and your family. Don't give up hope.... God is watching over you and your family.

It's good to hear from you, I have been wondering how you are doing. Sorry to hear that things are bad with your farm, my heart goes out to you. Keep us posted, and if there's something we can do please let us know!

Beautiful work I hope all your prayers are answered
