I like to knit for charity. Am I allowed to use your patterns for this purpose?

April 18th, 2011

I’m perfectly happy for you to knit toys from my patterns to sell, either for charity or to make yourself a little cash, as long as this is not done on a large scale and I am given a credit as the designer. You can download a free sheet of labels to attach to your work by clicking here. However, if you wanted to knit licensed characters you would need to ask the copyright owner of the character, whose name will appear on the leaflet or magazine article, for their permission.
