Copyright and knitting

I just read an interesting article about copyright and knitting. Did you know that can use a free pattern to knit a cozy sweater. You can wear the sweater, or give it as a gift, but you can't sell the sweater or republish a modified version of the pattern. ?
This of course, would also apply to bought patterns. To see the whole article, go to the Red Hat website.


  1. I've seen some people at craft shows who should probably read that. Thanks for the link.

  2. Thanks for your comments and suggestions about my log cabin dishcloths. I am planning different variations, including mitres. I've found many interesting ideas in my quilt books.

    Your wraps are lovely. Very generous of you to donate your work to those less fortunate. I'm hoping to get more charity knitting done this year. I plan to knit more scarves for cancer awareness and love the idea of knitting premie hats.


Hi. Thanks for dropping in. I look forward to reading your comment.
I like to answer comments; if you are "no-reply blogger" I will try my best to get back to you on your blog! I'm not on FaceBook so I can't contact you there!
