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.

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!

Has anyone done a scarf crocheted with the ruffle yarn like Patons Piroutte or other ribbon yarn that open and makes ruffles ? If so, how did you do it ?
Youtube has a simple knitting technique that looks easy enough, but I was wondering about crocheting with this yarn ?

I have crocheted some. Slip your hook into the first stitch,,,usually a couple of inches past the end of yarn. Then enter your hook into next stitch, about an inch away, and pull yarn through like you were going to single crochet. Don't finish the single crochet. Do this until you have 8 loops on your hook. Then start binding off one at a time, leaving the lst one added on your hook. Repeat. Hope this makes sense!

If you have a latch hook crochet hook you can put your hook through the stitches and then close the latch hook and pull through all the stitches at once instead of one at a time. How many stiches you do at once depends on how wide you want the scarf. I had to experiment to find out. I like mine narrow.

I've crocheted with Sashay, but a slightly different way. I pick up 7 sts on the hook, then pull st #7 through all the other 6, leaving one st on the hook, then pick up 6 more, continue this pattern to the end and pull the knot through the last st. It's very fast, the yarn swirls nicely, and it's not quite as heavy as the knitted ones....plus, I can get 2 scarves (almost waistline to waistline in length) out of one skein! I've given several for gifts, and the recipients loved them!

I bought 3 balls, different colors, of Ballerina mesh type ruffle yarn because I was told it was a cinch to knit. NOT. I have been checking out crochet instructions to see if that is any easier and it appears it may be. The problem is it twists and turns on itself horribly. Picking up a stitch is awful and I could use two more hands to keep the yarn in reasonable shape. I didn't like the look of the ladder-type yarns with openings to knit or crochet into but after a long, frustrating night with this, I know why they exist. It looks lovely but it is a nightmare to work with. I can't believe anyone recommends this for beginners (which I am not).

A friend of mine irons this yarn open and then wraps it around a tube from a paper towel to keep it from twisting. I don't know why it twist so much but it really is a pain.

I tried the loom method and then I tried the crochet.
Altho I was very excited when I got this yarn....I am not finding it a favorite. The ruffles are very pretty, but it's a scarf that I seem to have to "Place" it carefully when wearing it. I think it's just a bit "too loose" for me.
