I know there are plenty of sources of free patterns, and most of the things I make are from free or magazine patterns. However, I keep finding patterns online that I LOVE, but the shipping $ is crazy. For example, I fell in love with this, Curlicue Coverlet and I found it for sale on several websites. I didn’t mind spending the $5, but the EXTRA $5 for shipping?! I finally gave in and got it, but then I found this pattern. Same thing, and this time I’ve wanted the pattern for over a year, so I know I really want it.
I feel like I can’t just keep paying $10 for patterns, but I’m not sure how successful I would be digging around at my LYS for such specific patterns either - too much danger of finding 5 other patterns I can’t live w/o, but still not finding the one I’m looking for, lol.
Are there any good websites that have really low shipping for PIECES OF PAPER? Or is it better to ask my LYS to order patterns for me if they don’t have them?
