I had an odd experience on Ravelry the other day, and I’m not sure what to do about it.
I always save free patterns to my library and put the ones that cost money in my favs. So the other day I opened a pattern I’ve had in the library for a while, looked at it, and then decided to go to the project page to find out some additional information. When I opened the project page, I found that the pattern was no longer free but was now being sold. However, I was never prompted to purchase it before the download. Since I’ve never bought a pattern off Ravelry before, I’m not sure if that’s normal or not. Anyone?
Anyway, I immediately closed the pattern and deleted it from my library, but now I’m wondering if I need to pay for this pattern I’m never going to use.
(Note to self: Before downloading any patterns on Rav, check the original project page to make sure a formerly free pattern is still FREE!)
