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.

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.

welcome Gina! Unfortunately you will not find anything licensed by the New England Patriots...i know i have tried. What you may find is someone who is selling non-licensed therefore illegal patterns. My suggestion use a graphing program and make your own pattern. as long as you never profit from it and it is done for personal use only you are not technically breaking the law. I have an uncle who is a fan...i mean hardcore fan of the patriots and for him i designed a filet crocheted pillow with graph paper and a picture of the symbol. Good Luck!

Yes, good luck-I need a pattern for a Red Sox afghan, but it looks like I will have to graph it, too. I have thought of doing one with red and white stripes, with blue on the border. All I can suggest.

As a fan of both the Red Sox and Patriots(Celtics too) I use to do cross stitch, and have pattern books for all the teams, you could always do the afghan stitch and cross stitch over it.
(un) fortunately the pattern for the Patriots is the old one.

I made one with the matching pillow many years ago from a kit I had purchased from Herrschner's. My son still has it, and I still have the book. It's NFL Afghan, Lap Robe and Pillow by Nomis. My other son is having a son in two weeks. I just might have to make another.

I can tell you where to find patterns for this. Go to eBay and look for mjdavis090909, or lily corner. You will find all kinds of neat stuff. For you NHL and NBA fans this is where to look. Enough said.

I knitted this based on the cross stitch pattern, it will be a pillow when finished.
