|Pre-order now and save!|
The pattern will be available for advanced purchase for two weeks. During that time, the price is discounted as a special thank you (discount taken at checkout). Instead of a full pattern, you receive the first page up front. This page contains all of the necessary information to get started, short of the cast on numbers. It provides information on gauge, yarn and yardage, size range, needle size, and notions. It gives you a chance to go out and select your yarn, and knit your gauge swatch so you can be ready to cast on before anyone else. When the pattern launches, you'll be ready to start knitting instead of out at the LYS searching and swatching, lol. You'll be jumping the gun folks. In addition, once the pattern is uploaded to Ravelry, the full version will automatically appear as an update in your Rav library so you don't have to do anything special to get your hands on the real deal. Doesn't that sound nice and convenient?
So go on and pre-order before the pattern launches on October 1st, 2012 and the discount disappears. It'll be fun ;)
