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.

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.

Has anyone used Rosario yarn in a scarf or cowl? What size needles did you use. I have 2 skeins of green & 2 of red. They said buy me please. I did as requested & now need patterns.

The Sensations yarn I'm using right now has the recommended needle size on the wrapper. It's in a square box with US and metric along with the gauge. There are lots of free pattern sites to temp and assist you. Start with Ravelry.com. Sometimes those yarns just scream out loud and you have to pick them up to shut them up.

Google the yarn and some site should tell you what size needles to use.

I just searched this yarn. It is now discontinued, but shows that the gauge would be 10 stitches and 12 rows for a 4 inch square using a US size 8 needle.

I also have some that I would like a scarf pattern for. If anyone has used this yarn, could you let us know how it turned out? Thanks

This is really nice yarn to use. I'm in the middle of a shawl and ran out of turquoise #1315. If anyone has a couple of skeins, I would really appreciate it.

I have several colors of this yarn that I bought at Joann's. Haven't made anything yet, but it was so pretty. If I remember right, I did a swatch when I bought it (I do that with any new novelty yarns) to see how it knit up. I may have used a size 9 or 10 needle. It does knit up very nice. Will probably make some simple stitch scarves or cowls for gifts. Didn't know it was discontinued; so I'm glad I bought it when I saw it. The colors are beautiful.

I did find some Rosario Sensations yarn on WEBS at www.yarn.com. It is called Aslan Trends Litoral. It is a little more in cost, $11.00, but was glad to find it.
I really like this yarn.
