Beatrix Potter Knitting
I'm desperately looking for any Beatrix Potter's patterns designed by Alan Dart (Woman's weekly 1998). In his website he says that those patterns will NOT be re issue due to expired licensing or something like that. I saw a few on ebay from Australia and the UK. Does any one in the US has these patterns that I could borrow or puchase? Thanks!

Thank you so much HAINANGEL2000 for the amazon suggestion I just checked it, the book has knitting patterns for sweaters and other things with adorable Potter's characters! (a couple of items in the book look "80's"!).

I love to knit, have no time, so I collect patterns and fantasize about making them. Sound familiar? I love toy patterns. Alan Dart is my hero!

If trading patterns is acceptable I'd love to do that as well. I've never done that so I don't know if it is appropriate. I'm sure someone will let me know!

Technically the copyright on patterns prevents sharing and I suspect trading is included since you could have made the pattern and then giving it someone else is the same as sharing.

We do have designers on this site as well as ones who occasionally check it so it's not recommended to talk about sharing a copyrighted pattern on a public website. Both KH and you could get into trouble.

Josette, putting your email in a public forum is not wise. We have spambots trolling the forum all the time and they grab email addresses and add you to the list for spamming. Ick.
