I run a small business called Quick Knits and I'm always having to make up my own patterns because most of them restrict you to reproduce the item and sell it. Can any of you guys give me a link to easy, small and quick patterns without copyright saying that you can't sell the produced item.
I know how to do the basics of knitting - stocking stitch, moss stitch etc. but I want to keep it simple so I don't take a lot of time to make the item. I do enjoy doing icords so feel free to include patterns that include that in them.
If you see a pattern you like would it be possible to contact the copyright owner and ask their permission to sell items knitted from that pattern?
The worse they will do is give a flat refusal, and they may even say "Yes". "Yes" may come with conditions, but if these are minor ones like "You must state 'designed by Name Of Designer' on the item" it may be worth it.
