My eyes were dazzled my hands were twitching
I saw a new pattern so cute and bewitching;
I wanted to grab my hook and crochet
But the cost of the pattern – no way!
The price for patterns is over the top
It starts with a computer or a mere laptop
Then you need a printer for patterns to print
And an ISP that you basically rent
Add in toner, you always need ink…
Paper and yarn or thread I think
I now can’t afford the patterns to pay
Pattern sharing groups are the only way
Patterns for you and patterns for me
Gifts for the home or holiday spree
You only pay once and share with all
The price for patterns isn’t bad a’ tall!
Now you can afford the patterns you steal
And it’s really not a big deal…
The price for patterns is way to steep
And designers don’t need pay for their keep.
