You May Not Distribute Our Materials to Other People by Any Means


You acknowledge and agree that you will not reproduce, display, transmit, distribute, publish or post our content -- including our photographs, charts, diagrams, schematics, images, patterns, instructions, tutorials, text or other content -- on other websites, social media networks, groups, forums or by email.

You specifically agree not to post our photos, charts, diagrams, schematics, images or other materials on Ravelry.com, Pinterest.com, Flickr.com, or any similar social networks or photo sharing websites.

If you want others to see our photos, you agree that you will direct them to our website via links or word-of-mouth rather than giving them our materials directly.

You ARE permitted to take your own photos of any items you make using our patterns, and to post those wherever you like. In fact, we encourage this, and we would be grateful to you for helping to spread the word about our site and patterns. If you do this, you acknowledge and agree that you'll also post a link back to the pattern page at our website, so that other people may discover the pattern as well.

You acknowledge and agree that you will not sell our patterns. You acknowledge and agree that you will not translate our patterns into other languages to distribute to others by any means.

Intellectual Property

You acknowledge and agree that all photos, patterns, content and other materials available on the website, including but not limited to the Knittingandcrochet.net name and logos, are protected by copyright laws, intellectual property and other laws.

You acknowledge and agree that you will not claim our patterns, photos, charts, diagrams, schematics or other intellectual property as yours.

You May Sell the Items You Make by Hand Using Our Patterns (Unless Otherwise Noted.)

Unless otherwise noted on the pattern page, website members are permitted to use our patterns for making HANDMADE ITEMS to sell on handmade-only marketplaces such as Etsy and Artfire. They may also be sold on the maker's own website and at craft fairs, charity sales, charity auctions and other similar venues.

We do not encourage or allow mass-production of our designs. You agree that you will not create more than 300 of any one of our pattern designs without obtaining written permission from us to sell the items.

Our patterns are all copyrighted. Copyright law does allow us to prohibit the mass-production of certain items, including items made from our charted designs, soft sculpture designs, and others.

Important Note: These terms apply ONLY to patterns posted on our website. It's important for you to understand that our website also includes links to many other patterns posted on the Internet. If you're wondering whether our terms and conditions apply, simply check the URL at the pattern page. Our URL is knittingandcrochet.net. If you're on our website, then our terms and conditions apply. If you're on a different website, then you agree to follow whatever terms and conditions apply to content on that website instead. You acknowledge and agree that we are not able to give you permission if the rights to the pattern are not ours to start with.

Teaching Classes Based on Our Materials

If you are teaching a free class, you have permission to use our materials for free, provided that you agree to give your students the website URLs of the materials you wish to use so that they can visit our website and print their own copies of the patterns and / or tutorials your group will be using.

You acknowledge and agree that you do not have permission to print out multiple copies of our materials to distribute to a class, or for that matter, to anyone -- not even for free.

If you intend to teach a paid, for-profit class using our materials, you agree to email us with the details so that we can work out and agree upon a fair deal that's mutually advantageous to everyone involved -- teachers, students and content creators alike.
