Free pattern sites are wonderful resources for knitters and designers on the web, but Twist Collective is something different. It’s a big world, and we believe there is room in it for many different ideas. Twist Collective believes good design comes from hard work, and such effort should be valued and compensated accordingly. We came to the prices after careful consideration of the amount of time involved in our own work and the work of the designers. We hope you agree.

We really appreciate the enthusiasm that has greeted our issues. We have thought about how we can afford to both pay designers fairly and to gratify the pattern collectors with a “buy them all” or a “buy several for less” option. Because of our generous pay structure, we don't have the margin to do that. Twist Collective designers thank you for your purchase and support.
