How You Can Protect Knitting Designers!
- Let’s Knit
Respect designers by following these simple copyright rules
Knitting designers work hard to create gorgeous patterns for you to knit and enjoy. It takes a lot of time and creative genius to come up with a pattern and then they’re kind enough to share it with us so we can make it too. Help protect their efforts by respecting their copyright!
It’s really easy to do.
You are allowed to photocopy a knitting pattern for personal use - feel free to scribble and highlight as much as you like.
You cannot pass on or sell any copy of the pattern you make.
If you see someone selling a scan or copy of a pattern on eBay or a second-hand website, please report them to the website administrators. If it’s not their pattern, they can’t sell copies of it!
Some cheeky folk make money by selling copies of patterns that are FREE to download on the Let’s Knit website, so check first.
Why buy it when you can get it for free here?
If you sell the original pattern, you’re not allowed to keep a copy for yourself. That’s cheating and still breaches copyright.
Breaching copyright makes us angry.
