I saw this top (http://www.nordicmart.com/shopexd.asp?id=549&bc=no)and loved it, thought I'd buy it. But it seems the $2 is for the whole DROPS 105 magazine??????????

Searched on Ravelry, there are 2 pages of "drops 105" patterns, so does that mean they are all in that $2 mag? Because I saw this one (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=105&d_id=25&lang=en)and loved it as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've never made anything or any purchases from them and their link doesn't explain what you get for $2! Seems very cheap if you get ALL those patterns (see Ravelry link).

Most of the Drops patterns are free. Just scroll down from the link you posted and the pattern is there.

Go to the pattern by clicking the flag under the picture. If the flag is desaturised the pattern is not available in british-english/american-english yet. Click on the picture to see a larger image of the garment.

Look at the product information below the picture. And it also says they are free as well so not sure why anyone would buy the catalog.

Yes, I realize the 2nd one is free. I just didn't know if the "DROPS 105" magazine contained all the 105 patterns also.

I bought 2 Drop's magazines online through a link I got in their newsletter. I bought numbers 105 and 106. It is something new. I know you can get their patterns for free and it is one of my favorite places to look for patterns but I thought it would be easier and cheaper than printing out a whole bunch of patterns to buy:cheering: the magazine rather than pay for expensive ink cartridges.
You can buy their yarn and magazines here:

That probably isn't the actual shipping cost, even from Europe, there's probably a couple $s for packaging and such. But the patterns are probably free online and could be printed out.
