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.

Crocheted baby afghan pattern from Jamie yarn?

I used to make a crocheted baby blanket all the time. The pattern was from the back of the label from Jamie baby yarn. I think Lion Brand bought them out and changed the packaging. I used to keep those labels for future reference and I moved and I can't find it anywhere. :-(

The pattern was a series of dc's and a sc in a cluster and it looked like you were making a cluster that leaned to the left on the first row and when you turned, it leaned the opposite way, almost giving a vertical zig-zag effect. It had scalloped edges and was really a quick pattern, but very pretty when done.

I'm sure I could play around and figure it out again by making several swatches until I get it, but I'm kind of short on time.

I need to make a blanket and could sure use your help!

Post a picture if you can when you get started. So if anybody sees my pattern they would know what it looks like.

I definitely will. The yarn I've ordered is royal blue with dashes of other colors in it. It should be perfect for a very special little boy.

I'm looking forwarded to seeing it myself. It sounds like the perfect yarn for the pattern.

Lionbrand still posts the pattern you are talking about. I have made the afghan, but not the other items with it. Here is the link with the picture:

Hope this is what you are talking about.

Okay, so it's started and the yarn is so soft. Great for a baby blanket. The label even says it's saliva resistent!?! Interesting.
Just beginning, but on my way!

What I can see its turning out nice. I'm like you I like making my baby blankets out of primary colors versus an pastel color. You can't go wrong being Saliva Resistent :lol:

Okay, so it took a while, and with several other WIPs still going, I got the baby blanket done... Booties and hat to match will be started.

I'll attach the picture tomorrow.

Wow did that ever turned out pretty. Thanks for taking the time to show me. I always think the bright colors will be great for the little one. You have all the primary colors in the afghan blue, red and yellow.
