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.

there is now a booklet by Lily "Garden Grows" that uses the new Scrubby yarn. Adorable patterns that make up in no time at all! I am having so much fun using these new yarns in all the colors!
I have noticed the one ball of yellow scrubby yarn seems to break off while crocheting -- the other colors are more durable. Maybe just a bad skein...

I was in Michael's today and purchased a ball of the 'Scrubby' also. NO patterns and NO info on the Bernat or Sugar 'n Cream site. HUM What to do??? None of us can even find out if this a new product. :?:

according to the Michaels salesperson, the scrubby yarn comes up as "seasonal" in their system; only Michaels' will be selling this product in the US (as well as their stores in Canada) I've used it quite a bit for two craft shows over the last weekends -- made the dishcloths from the Garden Grows booklet. They don't take much time and really turned out cute and unique! The Michaels store only had three of these booklets; other Michaels didn't have any at all, not even an area by the yarn where it would be displayed. Hopefully all the stores will get these products soon! I also thought it odd that nothing is listed on the Lily webpage about the scrubby.

I also bought the yarn. also I tried to find a pattern to it, but got nothing. If you find out let me know. I just crochet a long washcloth which my grandaughter loved and used. I ch 37 st. I think. and then dc across. Then I did a front post double crochet stitch around a dc and then a back post dc, and so on as long as you want it. then I put an edge around it dc post st.

iand than a back post dc in a dc. after that I change color

I dont know if anyone else put this as I did not read all the comments but my Michaels had a booklet with about 20 or so patterns displayed right next to the scrubby yarn. It was a sugar and cream scrubby pattern book and was only 1.99 so they probably sold our really fast. It has some neat patterns in it.

You have to log in to Ravelry, then type in tribble in the search tool.
There were several patterns called "tribble." Some looked like dishcloths; others looked like toys.

has anyone tried to make the daisy dishcloth scrubby that is posted on the Michael's website using the scrubby yarn? I tried three times over to make it, but was having problems getting the scrubby yarn triple crochet stitch to "pop" out like the sample in the store. I pulled it apart three times and finally gave up! I have used the scrubby yarn along the border of other dishcloths and like the results!

Patterns are in the Lily Sugar'n Cream Garden Grows (#571004) book. I got the book at Michaels, Battle Creek MI.

There is a whole book using it called "Garden Grows". My mom found the book at Michael's.
