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.

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.)

I love this pattern but the price of the pattern is so expensive! I can't justify paying that much...

You're right it is pricey for one little pattern, I wouldn't pay it either. Leonora.

They are cute. One way to look at the cost is the fact that you are getting the shoe and sock pattern together. Just a thought.

I love some of the patterns at Annies, but the prices are crazy - usually twice what others charge for similar patterns.

I think they would sell a lot more if they priced their patterns reasonably.

Two patterns for $8.99 might be a little easier to take.

Those are adorable, but I agree that the price is too high! I wonder if another site has a similar pattern for a more reasonable price. I've seen the Mary Jane bootie patterns elsewhere but not with the socks attached. It's really cute!

Try Etsy.com. I found some really cute baby patterns including one similar to the Mary Janes w/socks. In the search box type "crochet patterns for baby" and lots of patterns will pop up (like 250 pages worth!). I paid $4.99 for one pattern and $3.99 for another. In your case, type "knit patterns for baby" in the search box. Good luck!

I agree they are expensive.
I had a look around and the cheapest I could see is $5.99 on Ravelry.

I bought that pattern, and am not happy with the results.

Cute but too expensive.
I have made the Erica Knight ones and they turned out really pretty.

I bought that pattern a few years ago and it was $6.00 then which I thought was outrageous but a friend and I split the cost and shared the pattern.
