"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. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

There’s no big secret to becoming organized— it’s all in the planning. The process begins with going through what you have, getting rid of what you don’t need, and holding off on buying anything new until you use up what’s left or your remaining stash.

Here's What's Inside:
Tips and Tricks for Beginners
If you're new to knitting or even if you've been knitting for years, chances are that there are still a few tricks you can incorporate into your knitting routine that would make the hobby even more enjoyable. Thanks to more than few reader-submitted tips, we've put together tried-and-true advice from avid knitters just like you that will work together to create the best knitting experience possible. If you've felt any pain or numbness after prolonged knitting sessions, don't miss the article 29 Tips for Avoiding Knitting Related Pain (p. 5). Aside from taking regular breaks to stretch, there are plenty of simple techniques you can implement into your knitting sessions that will leave you feeling relaxed and not strained. If you've been struggling to get your latest piece of lace knitting to look just right, make sure to check out the 22 Tips for Blocking article (p.8). For the traveling knitter who is almost always knitting on the go, we've included a basic traveling guide that includes tips and tricks for knitting on planes. When you download your free copy of the eBook, you'll find all these helpful articles and more that are ideal for knitters of all different skill levels.
Knitting Storage Solutions
As most knitters will tell you, it's incredibly easy to buy new yarn and knitting supplies, even when you don't have specific free knitting patterns in mind. Here's what usually happens: as you walk into a yarn store, a section of yarn catches your eye. Everything about this yarn — the texture, the color, the sheen — resonates with you; it speaks to you; it whispers your name — until you suddenly find six skeins of it in your shopping bag. Before you know it, you've left the shop with three times the amount of yarn you intended on buying. While there's nothing wrong with the powerful draw of inspiration, it does mean that yarn can pile up quite quickly, especially if you're still searching for the right easy knit patterns to use with them. The key is to create a space for everything you've bought. Once the yarn or knitting supplies have an assigned home, you'll know just where they should go each and every time. To help get you started, we've compiled a list of great organizational tips for knitters inside this eBook. You'll find articles on how to store knitting needles, smaller knitting notions and most importantly, how to store and organize your yarn stash. While it's going to take some grunt work in the beginning, the process is definitely worth it in the end when you find yourself easily able to locate the products you need in hardly any time at all.
With spring right around the corner, there's no better time than now to start tackling your unruly yarn stash. With the easy-to-follow tips and tricks in the free eBook, you'll find yourself in a more organized state in just a matter of weeks! While it takes a little time and patience, once you have a system figured out for both your yarn and knitting notions, you'll rest easy knowing each item has a place where it belongs. Just imagine it: what could be better than walking into your craft room and finding yarn neatly stored, labeled and organized by weight? Chances are you'll feel even more inspired to start knitting and creating new wearables for yourself, your friends and your family.

As this e-book seems to be directed to yarn hoarders, I would have expected tips on how to store and find your yarns. Unfortunately, there are just 13 small tips on this issue, less than two pages. And some of them are not even helpful. So I'd like to submit my own tip Make a list (preferably in a spreadsheet program) of all your yarns, including manufacturer, name, composition, making-up (ball, hank, whatever), color (name and number, if applicable), yardage per weight-unit and date of purchase. Then add a column for the place of storage. You will find this very helpful for going through your stash in a minimum of time.

Great idea! Let me add another column to your spreadsheet the intended project. I have more than a few bundles of yarn that were purchased for a specific project... but I can't remember what it was. (The worst was when a box of yarn arrived, and I had no idea why I ordered it.)

How do I get this ebook in a folder to read?
Feb 17, 2019
Hi barbsrrw, when you click the big red button that says 'click here for the eBook,' it will download. If you are using Chrome, your download will pop open at the bottom of your screen, and you should click the upward-facing arrow button and select 'show in folder.' If you are using Microsoft Edge, a prompt will appear the bottom of your page asking you what you would like to do with your downloaded content. Select the upward-facing arrow next to 'save' and select 'save as,' and from there, you can choose which folder you would like the eBook to download to. If you are using Firefox, a window will show up. Make sure you have the 'save file' radio button selected, and then click 'OK.' After that, select the blue downward facing arrow at the top of your browser, and select the folder next to your downloaded content. This will take you to the folder with the eBook. Please let us know if you still need help or if there is something else that needs explaining. Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
