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.

First name:

E-mail address:

It's FREE, and you'll receive my first e-mail right away. Also, you'll get instant access to the most recent topics on our knitting forum: hundreds of great tips from other knitters.

(A new newsletter issue is released each week. So if you don't sign up now, you'll miss this week's digest.)

Hennalady, Is there a knit stitch that looks like the crocodile stitch?
I've been searching online but no luck yet.
Thanks :)

Hey Kim...all..this pattern is beautiful...definately going to make it a bath mitt...

FYI ..if you use http://Joliprint.com it will turn the pattern page into a PDF file easier to print if all the ads and junk are gone lol

Also I used to subscribe to Maggie Weldon..purchased MANY patterns from her...the last 3 I purchased I could NOT get to print..wasted a lot of paper and ink..New printer...pages before them and after printed fine...
I emailed Maggie and was told I had to NOW pay shipping to get them in the mail....
IMHO that was BAD customer service...told them too...
NO way could those last 3 patterns be printed...
Just saying ...also when you get her patterns there are like 3 pages of disclaimer crap...NOT necessary...
In other words I could not just print the PDF file...I had to go through and print EACH page seperately...not kewl either.
Just saying...I still love Maggie and her patterns..but will not purchase anything else as the shipping cost was a principle thing for me.

Great Looking dishcloth. I just bought a cone of cotton to make new ones as a few had to be tossed out. I like the idea for the shower too. Thanks for logging it on.
