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 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 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.

Going forward, the next digest will be released in just a few hours. So if you don't sign up now, you'll also miss everything covered in it too.

Not sure if you are wanting knit or crochet, but the link below is to a search I did on ravelry. There are 63 pics of patterns. You might have to join to see it, but its free and they are a great site for patterns and stuff. Good luck!

You might have to copy and paste, not sure if it shows as a link on the post.

Check to see if any of these patterns will work for you.
If not, I Google'd "girls knit shrug pattern" and several other FREE pattern sites pulled up, as well. Hope you find what you're looking for.

Here's one I love, and will start for my 5 year old granddaughter as soon as I buy my yarn.

Google:
Child's Ballet Shrug in Cotton Twirl Designed by Gail Tanquary

Let me know what you think.

Just found one pattern at this site:

www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/baby-child/mochiplus-balletshrug.html

The info was for free patterns and as I went down the list here this was, didn't check if there were more, probably are.

Happy hunting!

Check out Lion Brand website. Some of their adult-sized patterns fit a child better than an adult!

My friends
I have found the pattern for the shrug. Thank you for all of your help. Now I just have to get to Beaumont to JoAnns
to get the yarn. I found it in one of my Creative Knitting Magazines. If any of you haven't heard of this publication, its the best one I have found. I have been subscribing to it since 1999. They also have a website, creativeknitting.com. I get aggravated with them sometimes, because they did to be yarn snobs. I never use to yarn they say to because its too expensive. One of these days when I hit the lotto, my first buy will be silk yarn, then bamboo, then all of the rest.
Again, they all of you for your hard work on my part.
I am mentally sending all of you hugs and kisses.
Get them????
Love, Wanda/Queenmawmaw

Hello Wanda. I have a pattern for a little girl's shrug, in several sizes. I have a copy of the pattern on my pc, so if you can let me have your e-mail address I will forward the pattern to you.

I have tried to attach it to this reply without success.
