I often get asked about any restrictions on my patterns. I want to make sure everyone knows that I have no restrictions on how many projects you make from my patterns. Even mass productions is fine and free. You are free to sell as many of the projects as you like. There is no requirement for attribution but it is appreciated where appropriate. I encourage modification of my patterns to suit your needs. If you share the modified pattern with others please make note of the mod.
It is also fine to share any patterns you download with friends as long as the title page remains intact. I do ask that the patterns not be uploaded to other pattern sites. Please just link to my blog if you want to share the pattern online. I do ask that you not sell the patterns. I want them to remain free with the consideration of an optional donation if you find value in them. Never donate if you can't afford it. I get email everyday apologizing for not being able to donate. I appreciate those that can and do donate but absolutely do not want anyone to not use my site or patterns because they can't make a donation. Just enjoy the site.
I know other pattern designers and magazines have restrictions. I understand why they need those rules in place. I do not consider my blog a pattern site. I started the blog with the intention of teaching and helping new scrollers get started in the hobby. My goal was and is to help the hobby grow. There are many fine professional pattern designers out there that count on income from their patterns. I encourage you to support those designers and purchase their patterns. From time to time I help pass on information about pattern designers and industry related products. I do not take money from these individuals or companies for these posts. I try to know who I am dealing with but everyone should know that I can't guarantee you will be happy with your personal dealings with them. I very occasionally get an email letting me know about an unhappy transaction with a vendor. I like to hear when this happens because it helps me know what to expect when I talk about products. I am sometimes asked to intervene. That is something I will very seldom get involved in.
I know this is a boring post but it's information a few would like to have so there it is. Now lets go make some sawdust.
