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.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter or crocheter, 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/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.

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 and crocheters.

Can anyone find this pattern? I found it on Ravelry, but the page for the directions has been discontinued. I would love to make this sweater; but, alas, unless someone will send me their copy, I don't think it's going to happen. If there's another way other than the dc'd page, I would be so grateful.
Please and thank you...

Here it is stored in the archives of the "wayback machine," a website that stores copies of other websites as they appeared on specific dates: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns2/bamboozle-tunic-lacefrnt.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" style="word-wrap:break-word;">http://web.archive.org/web/20100810082451/http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns2/bamboozle-tunic-lacefrnt.html

Crap. The link gets broken when I try to paste it here. That tends to happen with excessively long links when you try to post them in the comments on KP. Might have to take that up with Admin...

Here's how I got to it:

Start at this site: http://archive.org/web/web.php
In the search box next to the "Take me back" button put this site address: http://www.straw.com
Click on the July 16th date on the calendar (the most recent date available for the site).
Click on the "free patterns" link at the top of the page.
Scroll down to the "Pullovers" section and click on "Lace Panel Tunic" to get the pattern.

I got to the pattern but it won't let me copy and paste a link. Let me see if I can do it again and explain how you can get there.

Just read the post that says you got it already. That will teach me to read from the bottom up.

Yes, it is, Colorado, but if you click on "Click here for instructions," it says "Bamboozle has been discontinued as of May 2012."

TammyK found the instructions for me, however (See above). It's a bit of a scavenger hunt, but she got it for me, and I can't thank her enough!!
