Cheques early release knitting pattern is ... ready!

Remember my first shawlette design?  That I so confidently thought I would have an early release knitting pattern ready for download, oh, a couple of months ago?

Yes, that one!  Cheques!

Well, I learned the very hard way that my original design wouldn't work.  Yes, I can knit it myself.  I can probably tell an experienced knitter how to knit it.  But the original design had very few repeating rows.  There was no pattern to the pattern.  Which makes for a VERY long knitting pattern!

So back to the drawing board.  A few times.  And now ... we have an early release pattern!

What's the diff between an "early" and a "full" release?  
Well, the early release hasn't been tested or tech edited (the full version will be).  The charts for the early release are first drafts and will be revised/replaced/edited/tested for the full release.

Why on earth, then, would you want the early release?
The early release is $2.75.  The full release will be at least $6.00.  If you order the early release, you'll receive the full release at no additional charge, along with any interim revisions.  That's a pretty good deal!  Even if you decide not to knit it until the full release is published, you're locking in to a pretty great price.

How long is the early release available at this price?
Until the full release is published, which I think will occur in late September.  At that time, the early release will be replaced by the full release pattern and price (at least $6.00).  If you already order the early release, you'll receive directions and a download link at the same time for the full release (no additional charge!).

You can order the Cheques Shawlette / Kerchief / Triangle Scarf knitting pattern via my Etsy shop, my own site or Ravelry.

And ... thank you!  I hope you have a fantastic week!  xo
