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 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 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 have been knitting for several years, and my nephew asked me to knit him an afgan with the Harley Davidson Logo on it. Does anyone have such a pattern?

Welcome to the forum from Michigan!! I'm sure someone will come up with a Harley Davidson logo. I'll do some searching and see what I can find.

Ask him for a decent sized Harley Davidson logo, take it to your local copy place, copy it onto graph paper . . .and don't share it, as it is almost certainly copyrighted.

Or trade-marked.

Here's a graph you can build around...

This graph is great. If I am reading the graph correctly, there are 100 sts across and 80 rows in height. I am not good at all when it comes to altering a pattern. I want to make an afgan (full size) and have the logo centered on it. How do I do that? Do I cast on double the stitches (50 more sts on each side) and knit double the rows (40 top and bottom)?? Pretty dumb when it comes to that. I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks again for your help.

Hi dolly911,

You would want the top to bottom be longer than the side to side so you would knit more rows before you start the pattern. I would lay it on a bed to determine when to start the pattern, do the 50 sts on either side and then do the same amount of rows on top of the logo as on the bottom so that the logo is centered. My nephew would love to have this for his bed as he rides a Harley. Just might have to try it myself. Thanks for the idea!!

Thank you so much for the input. I will definately try this. My nephew is also a Harley owner, as is my brother. Let me know if you decide to make it. I will now start looking for black, grey and orange yarn (Harley colors).
