Does anyone have the pattern to the One Skein Wonder that they could share? Or must one purchase it from Glampyre's site?? Just curious.

Yep, you're supposed to buy the pattern, she's the author of it and deserves some compensation. However, you may be able to figure it out yourself by reading the threads on it. I've come up with a cardi/shrug pattern by combining ideas from the OSW, the anthropologie capelet and one of elann's raglan shrug patterns. I just keep re-doing it until it looks like I want. Wink I like what I've got know, but it's too big in the neck and armholes so it looks like I'm going to do it `one more time'. Then I'm going to redo one I did last summer the same way.

Hmm... if she's the author of that particular shrug, why have I seen exactly the same one for sale in all kinds of shops? I'm really not sure that her "pattern" hasn't already been patented by someone else. I don't think she invented it, is what I'm saying.

No knitting pattern is entirely original.  If you wish to make up your own, you can.   She doesn't own the pattern to every shrug in the world, she owns the pattern to the one she designed. She named it "One Skein Wonder" and it belongs to her. If you wish to make Glampyre's One Skein Wonder version, then you need to buy that pattern from her.

There are plenty of free shrug patterns  on the 'net, and even here on craftster.  If you don't wish to pay for a shrug pattern, I suggest you google for a free pattern.

I'm not saying she owns the pattern to every shrug in the world. I'm just saying that I've seen Glampyre's shrug in all kinds of different shops made by all kinds of different designers. Exact same knit, gauge, everything. So, I don't necessarily believe it belongs to exclusively to her, or that her design wasn't influenced by examining existing shrugs, etc.

I have no problem paying for a pattern, and her prices are very reasonable. I do have a problem with someone saying that they own a particular pattern, when it's very obvious that they didn't invent that design.
