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.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter or crocheter, 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/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.

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.

Hi there, Well I am 2 days behind in reading the forum posts but will get there eventually. in the meantime i thought i had better post the latest finished items for you to see. we went out the other day to look at new recliner chairs as the ones we have are looking a bit shabby. needless to say we found 2 rocker recliners that we thought would fit the bill so ordered them and because they are to be upholstered in colours that we want they won't be delivered until next week sometime. so hence i had to make new arm covers which the pictures posted are showing.
have a great day. best regards, JOHN

Great color and covers. The remote holder is a really good idea. I'm forever dropping it off the arm of the chair. Mom just orderd a new chair in her choice of fabric... It is going to take 8 weeks.... Your wait is very reasonable.

Nice work John! I just got a couple of new rocker recliners for my Dad and he loves them. He had a maroon leather 3 piece suite which he and my mum bought about 20 years ago, but didn't want to part with the couch as it was still in good condition, so we managed to match up the chairs pretty well. In fact those chair covers would look perfect on them! Happy rocking (and reclining)! :)

Beautiful work John, I really like the TV remote holder. I will be anxious to see the covers on the chairs. i love the colors too.

Maybe you can post a pic of these pretty covers on your new chairs when you get the chairs. I am sure they will be lovely. My mother just got a new recliner - maybe I should do some of those for her.

John, I wish you were my neighbor. I love your work,talent and kindness you share with others. :)

Beautiful work yet again John. They are just what I need for my recliner, fortunately my recliner has deep poskets along the sides, but the arm covers I need to get round to doing at some point. I saw the design I wanted in crochet cotton thread just the other day on here, but the booklet was sold to someone who wanted all the booklets that were offered.
