Adapting patterns and selling knitted items
Hi all....I have a dilemma of sorts...hoping you have some advice.

A friend of mine saw my pictures of my FOs, mostly baby hats, and she is crazy about them! She is actually planning to open a high-end baby store and would like to try selling some handmade items. She would like to work out a deal with me to make a few and test them in the store to see if there is interest.

The problem is, the hats I've made thus far have been gifts for friends, all made from free patterns I got on the web. I'm sure that there is a problem with someone else selling items made from other's patterns, right?

I've never created my own pattern, and not sure that I could before she wants a few hats to sell. So exactly what magnitude of changes would constitute a "new" pattern? I mean, if I took a stitch pattern from an encyclopedia and incorporated it into a basic hat pattern, would that be original enough? Or if I added stripes, bobbles, buttons, etc?

Thanks in advance for your advice.....
