I ordered $1.99 sock pattern and asked that they send it first class mail rather than pay the $3.25 shipping cost. I assumed they would stick it in a #10 envelope and send it for $0.37 or at most $0.74. It was at most...2 pages. No...they put it in a 8.5 x 11 tyvek envelope with a thick piece of cardboard and sent it first class...and charged me $3.35... but with no amount showing so you couldn't tell how much it cost to mail it. I hate to be taken advantage of. I'm still fuming. They actually could download all their patterns and save us all time and money!
What do ya'all think?

I would have called them to request the First Class shipping. JMHO.

Did you ask them BEFORE ordering? I've found it common enough for patterns to ship with cardboard, because people complain if they are damaged from being in just a regular envelope.

Well. You said you asked them to send it first class.

And they sent it first class.

You should always check around for codes for free shipping from Knitpicks even under $30. Look in your knitting magazines for the Knitpicks ads and find the code or come on KR and ask if anyone knows the code.

We had a thread on whether giving out the code is legit and the consensus was yes because the code is printed in the ads.
