I'm sorry, you can't sell your patterns here because we don't allow self promotion. This is just a help forum. You can get yourself an Etsy website or start your own website and then put a small link in your signature.
http://www.etsy.com/

You can also join Ravelry and set up a store there. They take a portion of your sales, but it's very small. Ravelry is very popular and you will get a lot of people looking at them there.

Thanks for replay. What is the Buy/Sell/Swap (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=19)?

That is this forum. It's mainly for members to buy, sell or swap yarn and accessories like like needles, books etc. We don't want people setting up shop in here to sell patterns though. KH just isn't set up for large scale pattern sales like Ravelry or Etsy.

I see now that you do sell patterns on Ravelry. Other than your own website that really is the best place to try and sell them. :thumbsup:

One more thing...if you do create your own website for your patterns you can contact Sheldon about purchasing an ad here in KH for your website. I'm not sure what criteria he uses, but that's how you'd go about it.

Just an FYI, they charge you a percent of your sales on Etsy too.

I just looked at Sultana's (Syeda's) patterns on Ravelry. Adorable baby booties and hat!
