I bought this pattern and I see it is now free:

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/portuguese-fisherwomans-shawl

I did have trouble with my purchase and had to phone the shop. I hope that obtaining it for free is easier.

I have seen this made up and worn, and it is really neat.

Could not get the pattern for free even though the Ravelry posting states it is a 'free' pattern. There is not a large fee for the pattern, but I don't understand why it is shown as being a free pattern. Anyone else tried this?

They must have fixed it now, Sue. When I clicked "add to cart", there was a $0.00 charge for the pattern. Try again -- the pattern is worth the hassle!

When I tried it, I got the pattern for free but there was a shipping charge of $1.50. It didn't look like ther was a way to download the pattern.

I sent her an email asking if it could be sent electronically but haven't heard anything.

Gah. Now the site is showing the pattern is no longer free.

Sorry for the kerfuffle.

Not a problem, probably wouldn't get to it for ages as there is a 'to do' list already more than a mile long. Thanks for trying.

I finally got an email back from the Vermont Yarn Company. Here it is:
quote:
Thank you for your e-mail and letting me know what you found. The free posting (on ravelry) was a fluke and I am still trying to figure out what happened there. The original pattern listing was posted by another yarn shop and not by me. I think when the other shop closed down, the link was transferred to me. The designer would not like to give her hard work away at this point in time, and I am sorry for the confusion this has caused.
Best,
Carrie
