Why Would You Ever Want to Pay For Knitting and Crochet Patterns or Lessons When You Can Get All That for Free?
Read this:
 

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter, 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 message board digest with the latest knitting 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.

• 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.

E-mail address:

It's FREE, and you'll receive my first e-mail right away. Also, you'll get instant access to the most recent topics on our knitting forum: hundreds of great tips from other knitters.

(A new newsletter issue is released each week. So if you don't sign up now, you'll miss this week's digest.)

Hi
I am looking for a pattern for KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY,
MANHATTAN, KANSAS. WILDCATS.

Especially the cat.
Want to knit a hat, scarf, and afagan.

I am not good at designing.

Do any of you have a site for me to go to, or a pattern.

Thanks to all for your help.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding your request -- but what are the colors for Kansas State?

Find any patterns you like and do the items up in those colors. Right now I'm making a Mizzou (Missouri University) afghan for my grandson who is a Sophomore there. Gold, black and white (AKA Pittsburgh Steelers).

http://www.free-crochet.com/detail.html?code=FC00860&cat_id=1

Already did one (ripple pattern) for his older brother and next year I need to start one for the youngest, a girl. I think I will do hers in a "shell" pattern.

Does this help? Or am I missing something...............?

I am looking for a pattern with Fair Isle knitting that would have the college logo pattern worked in. KSU (Wildcats)
The colors are purple and white.
Mine would have to be a knitting pattern. I don't know how to crochet.
I may need to do like you say and use the colors only.
I really appreciate you getting back with me.
Thanks

Small World. ??? I have 2 sons, KSU alum. We lived in Manhattan, during college days. I now live in Iowa. One son in NJ, the other still in Manhattan.
I have been to Wildflowers. At the time I lived there she did not have KSU patterns. I could check with her now. Good suggestion.
Are you from Manhattan. ??
Thanks

Really small world. My daughter is a professor at KSU and I looked all over for a Wildcat pattern and couldn't find one. I"m no good at designing so I ended up making her this scarf. Not my best work but she likes it.

Not from Manhattan. . . lived in Overland Park when Rachel went to college then divorced and I moved back to Indiana while my ex moved to Arkansas. That daughter is now back in Overland Park working for ADM and her husband has a home inspection company, ESI. Rachel has both college and high school friends in KS and they enjoy living there. . . It's an 8 hour drive for me but God has put me where I need to be for now. . . jj
