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.

Items that are "trademarked" such as the characters from Winnie the Pooh are often controlled by the holder of the trademark...making finding them difficult! Utilizing cross stitch graphs can can purchasing graph paper and some colored make your own.

Nemo is a hugely popular fish...some years ago I found a pattern for a cute knitted fish...I brought up a picture of Nemo on my computer...and knitted the pattern to match Nemo's colors. Sometimes you have to be a little "creative".

go to this site, and go to number 6....the pic is not there but this is one of two books that show up periodically on amazon...they are, of course, sold by disney as all his characters are copyrighted. this particular book is really cute, as winnie, eeyore, and tigger all appear on the front of the sweater, coming at you and then on the back of the sweater you see their backs going away....i am not sure how many characters are in the book, i only mentioned the ones i remember seeing in the ad the last time the book was on sale....they sort of come and go and of course, occasionally have used versions from other people for sale, too..

okay....thought of something else, wrote the search differently and found this one on amazon, too....cute fronts, plain backs, but less expensive, too.......hope this helps

Hi, this link has a few Winnie the Pooh graphs on it, hope it's what you're looking for?
When you click on this link, click on right-hand side where it says 'nice picture to knit into a sweater' then click 'Disney' on the left-hand side. Scroll down & you will see Winnie the Pooh!

Oooops, just re-read your 'ask' & realized you were asking to knit the actual characters, not a sweater..sorry!

If you are looking for the toy, I bought a kit from the UK. Someone was also selling a pattern only from a different kit. The 2 finished products look quite different with the "pattern only" one having more facial reality. Trouble with it is it consists of 18 pieces with some of those being composed of subpieces. The directions are quite clear. It just takes a long time. Finished the last piece yesterday and now they all have to be sewn together. It also suggests you brush each piece to make him furry. Have done some but it is harder to make it fuzz than you would think. So far, I have used a wire brush from the hardware store, a dog brush (slicker, that has bent wires) and finally got the idea of using the hook side of velcro. The velcro works at least as well and is safer. Poked myself more than once with the wire brushes. Any other help I can give, just ask. Donna

take any picture you want and upload it onto this free program and it will make a chart for you.

Make sure that you indicate "KNIT" and which direction you want the pattern to be.

Landscape means horizontal
Portrait means vertical

It will give you a chart you can than print out.
