"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle.

Check out all of these famous folks who love knitting just as much as we do. And let us know in the comment section below which ones surprised you the most!
Like many of us, Meryl Streep loves to knit as a way to unwind. Even while leading a high-profile life as one of the most popular (and most awarded) actresses in Hollywood, Meryl has made a place for knitting in the "mundane" life she leads with her husband Don Gummer.
Krysten Ritter, star of Jessica Jones, absolutely loves knitting. She designed a line of knitwear for We Are Knitters and even tried (unsuccessfully) to teach Stephen Colbert how to knit on The Late Show.
Millenials knit, too! Demi Lovato posted this photo on her Instagram in 2017 of her knitting on an airplane!
Actress Kristen Stewart was often seen on the set of the Twilight movies knitting between takes.
Vanna White, Hostess of Wheel of Fortune, is both a knitter and a crocheter! She's even designed a few patterns that you can knit yourself.
While he is remembered for his comedy, Robin Williams also dabbled in knitting! His character in Mork and Mindy was also a knitter. It's probably safe to say that Robin Williams played the first extraterrestrial knitter on TV!
Not only does Uma Thurman knit, she is apparently obsessed with it! The streets may be filled with regret, but those steeks are divine, Uma!
Actress, model, (and occasional singer-songwriter) Amanda Seyfried has been spotted on multiple occasions knitting in public. Nothing like a quiet day, knitting in the park!
The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her sense of style, but when she was pregnant with Prince George, she briefly took up knitting. However, when asked about it, Kate told a fan that she was not great at it. It's okay, Kate. Everyone has to start somewhere!
Ryan Gosling said in an interview for QG Australia that his perfect day would include knitting. He likes to give his knitted items as gifts, too!
Russell Crowe has apparently taken up knitting as a form of anger management! Welcome to the stress-free world of knitting, Russell.
Audrey Hepburn was a knitter on and off screen! Like many actors and actresses, she would knit between takes. She also famously knitted in a scene in Breakfast at Tiffany's!
Actor and former wrestler David Arquette was taught how to knit by his grandmother. He was also featured on the cover of Celebrity Scarves 2!
Joining the list of the many Hollywood stars who like to knit is Catherine Zeta-Jones. She reportedly likes to knit during the downtime between takes on set.

Russel Crowe surprised me the most.
Apr 30, 2018
I was surprised by so many of these! I knew Vanna White was a knitter, but I was especially surprised about Robin Williams and Russell Crowe. Though, I find knitting to be very calming, so I am not surprised Russell Crowe uses it for anger management.
