Now, call me crazy, but it seems to me that if I buy a pattern I should be able to do whatever I want with it except sell it on directly, of course.

I think the time and materials I put into a knitted item, say a shawl, are quite a contribution, and give me the right to sell it, gift it, keep it, or even destroy it if I wish. Attempting to place restrictions on the use of your creation speaks volumes about a mindset of lack and scarcity — which is not the way I choose to live. I believe there is plenty of business for everyone. As a matter of fact, I know of at least one pattern designer, Natalie Larson, who recognizes that collaboration is a better way to do business than the old paradigm of competition.

I think a lot about this subject, yes! I agree with you wholeheartedly. Do they want a share in that as well as selling the pattern? I call that greedy. One artist who does this is Tilda.

She designs beautiful dolls and such. I bought one of her books.

Then I noticed that she asks us not to make to sell the products in the book. Then … I noticed that a blogging pal was selling one of the dolls, obviously out of the book!

Should I tell her or not? Why are the artists so inward thinking and unwilling to share their skills?

Thanks for the shout-out! Please share it as you see fit. I love the Clapotis pattern and reworked a spreadsheet because I am for sure a row and stitch count knitter.


Hope this helps others. I do give credit to all who helped with that spreadsheet and pattern before me too. The more I explore your site, the more I find to like and agree with.
