*Wondering why? We know it creates an extra step for you, the knitter, but we promise there's a good reason. This approach allows for the most efficient (and maximum) compensation for our indie designer friends, who are able to realize more money selling the pattern retail than selling it to us wholesale. Independent designers are a critical part of our knitting community, and we appreciate your helping us do our part to ensure that our Friends of the Flock are compensated for their work.
