There is posted on a blog a recipe for hats...


http://adorabubbleknits.blogspot.com/

Hopefully that will give you some guidance and then you can create from there. I am probably going to do the same so that I can sell some hats too. You can do it.

This might help too...here is a hat that has permission on it to make and sell.

Thanks so much, mom2hancj! I am definitely going to pass that info along to my friend and see if that's a style she'd like. I'm also going to try creating my own patterns too...wish me luck!

Thanks! I've read through all of the advice and those documents, and I think the only way I'll be comfortable is to really work hard to create something on my own. It might have typical elements (most hats do, like similar ways to decrease the crown, rolled brims, etc) but also some elements I make up.

I've started one hat which will hopefully look a bit Victorian...Pics coming when I'm done! You all can help me weigh in as to whether you think it's too similar to something you've seen out there, or if it's original enough to call my own!

Of course, I'd be sharing all of my patterns for free....with copyright protection of course.

We really get bogged down with this. A sweater or hat doesn't have to be something no one has ever seen before to be your original pattern. How many basic hat patterns have you seen that all have copyrights on them. A lot. How about a basic cardigan? Lots of them. It is the written instructions that are copyrighted as I understand it. If you also figure out how to make a basic hat, how can someone come along and sue you for copying that?

After all, how many scarf patterns have you seen that are...
cast on some number of stitches, knit every row until you are almost out of yarn (or desired length) bind off.
I even saw someone who had an entire 30 minute tv program, I'm sure I've seen them for sale in the mall.
IMHO, if you just want to use the basic hat pattern, make it your own with your stitch pattern and yarn and color choice.
However I doubt you would make enough money for anyone to worry about. Think about the cost of the yarn and your time, then think about what people would pay for the hat.
Best of luck and I hope every thing works out.
