Nomination: Al-Araaf Lace Wrap Cardigan

I'd like to nominate the Valley Yarns Al-Araaf Lace Wrap Cardigan from WEBS. (Note: Scroll down to near the bottom of the page for the pattern.) The pattern is free with purchase of the yarn, or $1.99 if you buy just the pattern.

The wrap style gives you a custom fit around the chest and the lower lace section flows gracefully around your figure. There's a sample of this cardigan at WEBS so I've been able to see it on many people. It manages to look great on many different body shapes. And FYI, the Deerfield yarn suggested in the pattern is a luscious blend of baby alpaca and silk the drapes beautifully.

Wow!
I really love this pattern. I am a sucker for wrapped tops I must say...so flattering for so many body types.
This is one of my faves!

I've been eyeing this one for a while! Great choice I think. Is it really $1.99 though, or do they charge "shipping?" I tried once adding this to my cart at WEBS and it came up with something around $5 for shipping.

I know they only charge actual shipping for yarn, but is their minimum tacked on for just a pattern?

Even though I nominated Sahara already, I love this one too! And I've already got the pattern for this one.... yay!

How many skeins of this Deerfield yarns does the pattern call for? I clicked on the Deerfield and the pattern link and couldn't find that info anywhere.

Oops, nevermind. I found it.

I'll check on the shipping charges for just a pattern. My guess is the most it would be is the equivalent of a first class stamp.
