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.

I purchased a scrubbie, crocheted with cotton yarn and tulle (crocheted together). From some of the posts I've read here, I thought maybe Lilly made a yarn like this. I have searched every store that might have something like that with no luck (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Joanna and Walmart). Can anyone out in KP land give me a clue as to where I can get this type of yarn or do I have to combine the two myself???

OK, I'm not really sure if I understand what you are looking for, but could it be something like this:

Thanks for the reply. What type of yarn is the picture you posted?

Cotton and viscose silk. The shining threads running through the main thread are viscose silk. But it is not a separate thread, it's like... I don't know if I can explain it good, the thread is like... i-cord maybe, but I might be using a wrong term, it is like knitted when manufactured from some very fine threads, and they are ... let's say "knitted" together, as one thread, but are not twisted around each other... does this make any sense?

I think she used the cotton yarn and the tulle separate but together. There is a new cotton yarn out that is called scrubbie. It has very little yardage and is very costly. But the colors are very pretty. You might be better off knitting with the 2 strands together a little cheaper.

Nope, it is not the same... Sorry - I have not seen something exactly like that. Looks like there were 2 separate threads though... but than again I might be wrong.

I've made scrubbies from the cotton yarn and tulle together. I really don't believe that there is some type of yarn with the tulle attached.
They were okay to go together and they work great.
Try and have fun.

It is probably nylon netting cut into strips and combined with the cotton yarn.

I agree with jdicks2171. There used to be scrubbies crocheted with just the netting cut in strips, so I think this is just adding the netting to the cotton yarn.

If anyone does find the yarn - please let us know. I have been cutting strips of tulle, tying them together and then knitting or crocheting with the tulle and a strand of cotton yarn. The knots seem to add to the scrubbiness of the piece when it is done, since I am making kitchen scrubbies to go with my dishcloths. Not sure my word scrubbiness is a word, but any crafter will know what I mean - tee hee : )

I remember getting an email around Christmas time that this new yarn by Lily Sugar'n Cream called scrubby was coming to a store near me. I never saw it in Walmart, Hobby Lobby, or Michaels near me. I just went to Lily website and searched their Sugar 'N Cream products and Scrubby is no longer listed. I wonder if they just did a small market and it didn't sell like they thought so they took off the market already.

Oh and does anyone know where to buy rug yarn? I used to use that with my tulle but have not found any in stores in a few years. I recently moved to TN and am not finding many yarn stores around here : ( Any suggestions for the eastern TN area?

Wow, guess I need to be online more often - I never saw any of it.... would have purchased some.

Someone brought up in an earlier forum that they couldn't find the cotton rug yarn anymore. I've been looking since and haven't seem any either. I didn't check Aunt Lydia's website. I did see some at a yard sale. Guess I should have bought it.
