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 was working on a pattern and the above was in the directions.
I tried all ways, finally I used kib, k, k bar. Is that the way to do it?
I'm sort of an experimenter and self taught. This was a new one for me.

Hi, it is not clear to me what the directions are saying, is it knitting three st into one st(dec. k3tog) or making 3 st out of one ( 2 st inc)? Did I make any sense??

There are a number of ways to make three stitches in one stitch. You can knit, purl, and knit in the same stitch, knit into the front, back and front of the same stitch, or knit, yo, knit in the same stitch. There are various videos on YouTube that illustrate different variations of these stitches.

pattern I'm using at the moment has a twisted mock cable up it and 1 row of pattern reads - slip needle into next 3 stitches as (knit 3 tog) but don't slip it off needle until you've actually knit 1/purled 1/ knit 1 into same stitch. thus giving the effect of knitting three together - but still ending up with three stitches on needle. Hope you can understand this.

Usually its, k1, p1, k1 all into the same st.

Or else k1, yo,k1 into the same st.

Sometimes it's k1 into the front, k1 into the back loop of same st., k1 again into front of same st.

Hi! I am new to this... but I was reading some of the replys on this question there is a really easy (& pretty) way to make one stitch out of three! Here goes... slip first 2 sts, knitwise onto right needle, knit next st, leave on left needle, slip 2 sts back over it, then move onto right needle. It places the middle st right smack in the middle of the decrease and looks very nice. Good Luck! LA

Oops! I forgot to say that when you slip the first 2 sts, they will twist, this is intended. they will untwist when you slip them back.
Good Luck!

To make 3 stitches from one stitch, I would knit in the stitch, then purl in the stitch and then knit in the stitch.

k1 yo k1 sounds the easiest way to make 3 stitches out of one stitch - will have to try that!
