I don’t buy quilting patterns and rarely purchase a book or magazine anymore. I’ve got more books here than I need to inspire me and most of the time I just draft my own quilts anyway. I also spend quality time on eBay looking at antique quilts for ideas.
Knitting however is another whole different kettle of fish … I’m amassing quite the collection of books and have even purchased a few shawl patterns online recently. Of course, Ravelry leads you to lots of free patterns also which I’m grateful to the designers for providing. I’m not confident enough to design my own (yet) although I am acquiring stitch dictionaries and have some ideas floating around.
So my question is how much would you pay for a single pattern?
I’ve paid $3 for a couple I found through Ravelry and I thought those were a good value, I paid $6 for this Calla Shawl pattern but only because we saw one at the quilt show in Hampton and I bought yarn to make one for my sister and one for me (or another gift) but otherwise I wouldn’t have paid that much for it.
I love this Lakeshore Shawl but I’m definitely not paying $7 for it.
