Hi!
I am definitely sure that my boyfriend would like this for his birthday (Mid november). But here starts the trouble.
see http://www.flickr.com/photos/68971937@N00/134463733/
Even if I could make the changes (seems not to hard to do) I cant get the pattern here in Austria. Even if I could find one via internet, it would take to long or otherwise would be to expensive to order from US.
Any idea for similar looking pattern or possibility to get that pattern?
Thanks
Tanja

Nice Pattern, but not as nice as Jareds Cardi. I really love all his designs. But -bad luck for me - Its even not possible to get the IK fall with the cobblestone pullover in Austria. They stopped to import the magazin... Its so hard to get stylish knits for men!

This is one of the main reasons why I believe that these knitting companies should start offering their magazines online, IK would make so much money if they did this.

Now, back to the topic. Jared is a big Elizabeth Zimmerman fan. His pattern is basically a modification of a yoke pullover. Garter stitch has been placed at strategic area as a design feature. I would buy one of EZ's books off of Amazon - you can get Knitting Without Tears, for instance off of Amazon UK and Amazon US ships everywhere - and would then adapt her yoke cardigan to be similar to the Cobblestone pullover.

Even better yet, there is probably a free yoke pullover pattern floating somewhere out on the Internet.

Finally, consider checking eBay for these patterns. People in eBay will normally ship internationally.

HTH and let us know how you get on.

I'm not sure where the pattern is from, but you mentioned IK - they do ship internationally, if you want to subscribe. I live in Thailand and just renewed my subscription for the second time ... and anyone who ships to Asia will usually ship to Europe for sure (generally they ship to Europe but NOT Asia!)

Actually, Interweave does sell their stuff online.  They just sold out of the Fall 2007 issue already. :/


Tanja, I suggest contacting Jared directly.  Perhaps he will sell you the pattern & send it by e-mail? www.brooklyntweed.net

By selling online, I mean selling pattern downloads like Lion Brand and other companies do. You still have to have a paper product, which IMO is not good for the environment, because of all of the fuel that needs to be spent transporting magazines and the paper. I am not saying completely do away with paper magazines, but having online downloads would be good for the environment and help people who dont live in the states and dont want to pay the exorbitant shipping costs for shipping magazines overseas.

A lot of designers don't allow it because of piracy concerns.  I really wanted a particular pattern by Blue Sky Alpacas that no one had locally, but the online retailer had to mail it to me because the company wouldn't let her sell it electronically.  They're afraid that if they do offer them electronically, they'll turn up on, well, places like Craftster and then people will stop buying.

I know about this as I have heard the same thing. However, legitimate sights like Craftster do not allow copyrighted patterns to be posted. Also, an enterprising person could easily scan in the patterns and make a PDF of them, so these designers have to think of a more clever way to combat pirating than selling only paper patterns.

I totally support this idea. I think that we consume toooooo much and printing a whole magazine is really out dated. To be honest, I think twice if I can't buy it electronically. I have not bought alot of patterns for this exact reasons when I can buy an electronic copy of one somewhere else on the net.

I work for a major environmental company based out of the US. And I can't believe that people think we have time left when it comes to the environment. WE DON"T.

Printing a single electronic copy is not pirating if I paid for it. Think about it: If I pay $5 US dollars for a single pattern versus $8CDN for a whole magazine...aren't you going to make MORE MONEY off single pattern purchase PLUS do the right thing for the environment?

YUP

sorry for the thread jack. I must say I just discovered jared this weekend. He is very talented Smiley

No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.
