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.

I have gotten so much help as to where to buy this yarn. I saw a post that said you could crochet with it. I knit and crochet but would never have thought to crochet with this mesh yarn. I will have to look on the internet how to do this but I probably will knit mine.

I plan to make my girls each one for Mother's day and my 5 yr old granddaughter wanted one when she saw one I was making for a gift. I plan to have her try it on later today for length and will let you know how it worked.

Rowan has a tutorial on how to crochet the scarf if you need it.
You need to create a user name and password and then have access to all their tutorials. Their yarns are gorgeous...not cheap....but the tutorial is free.

Here is the link:

I crocheted one and the curling is a little looser where the knitting makes the bells.

I knit a lot of these up. I make sure to keep the adult ones at 50 to 55 inches and the child size 25 to 30 inches. When I knit one for a child/mother combo I make sure to knit both with no more than a 5 stitch cast on. This way you can get both out of one ball of yarns most times.

The trick to knitting with this yarn is to keep it from twisting too much. I found if I put the yarn in a zip top baggie and closed the top to just wide enough for the yarn to go through, that it helped a lot. (My second scarf took only about 1/3 the time that the first one did without that baggie.) It's not the fastest knitting I've ever done, and I'd never make them to sell as some do, but the scarves are cute, and only a little frustrating.

I have knit several of these. I go back and forth on the same side, instead of in a circle, so there are no bells.

Red Heart has a YouTube video on how to crochet with it. I watched both the knit and crochet videos and was able to follow the knitted one easier.

I will try to zip lock bag as the twist is really a problem and takes time. Thanks for the tip.

Do not understand back and forth on same side. I use a circular knitting needle

I made two of these this week. First one I knitted. Second one I crocheted. Both turned out nicely but the crochet was far easier and faster and looks pretty much the same. I watched this video to learn how to do the crocheted one. I'll take a look at the other video suggested here. Can't ever learn too much about this.

I may make more of these but it doesn't have the same calming effect I get from knitting with wool. The resulting scarf is worth the effort since it only takes a couple of hours to make one.

I work at a table, leaving the yarn and the product pretty much flat on the surface. Twisting is much less troublesome that way, at least for me. Yeah, I'll probably buy more of this yarn to make gifts.

I am making one of these scarves out of Flounce, it is turning out pretty, but I find it too fiddly to do. I will finish it for my DGD but don't think I will be making any more. Do not find it as relaxing and fun as regular knitting. They are beautiful, so I guess worth the fiddling. Hugs to all

All ladies I have made over 100 fancy frilly scarves. I knit mine with a 5.5mm needle. I bought the small short pkg of needles they work o.k. Then the other material that is got more ribbon I use 7 or 8 needle. So hope everyone has fun & go to all the craft shows & make money. I live in Sask. Canada . Take care.

I crochet mine and get two out of a 30 yard ball.

See instructions below.
