Duffers for my Daughters
I made these 3 pairs of duffers for my girls. They are very popular indeed! I found the pattern on Ravelry. I used 2 strands of Patons Wool and size 11 needles. They felted really nicely.

Lots of my friends say I should sell them, but I just say "I can't charge enough to make it worth the time, I'll make you a pair because I LIKE you!" They are a quick knit for sure.

Beautiful!


You can't sell most things you make from patterns anyway. There's usually a copyright somewhere on the pattern or the designers site. I know a few though and keep those in my favorites with a tag that lets me know what they are should I ever feel the need to sell something.

Jan, Thanks for that reminder. I always forget that aspect, even though I've never sold anything anyway.

Those are really cool and cute. I love them. Beautiful little touches you added with buttons, beads, and embroidery.

Love them! Did you use the Duffer pattern or the French Press Pattern? I have been using the duffer pattern and everyone loves them! I need to figure out how to add the little strap, or I will need to break down and buy the french press pattern so I can adapt it - I'd love to make them that way!

Yes, it's the duffers pattern. I found the strap instructions among the comments on the Duffers thread on ravelry. You just pick up 9 stitches along the line where the decreases are. Do 17 rows stockinette stitch. Then on the next 2 rows you do a dec. one stitch in from the edge stitch - on each side. Choose the dec. that leans the right way. on the 3rd row of deceases you do it right at each edge. this leaves you with 3 stitches on the needle and just bind off.

Not being able to sell things from patterns is mostly a UK thing, US copyright doesn't cover the items made from a pattern, just the pattern itself. So even though they may say you can't sell any finished item, it's not legally enforceable. And what does it take away from them anyway? People who are going to buy the finished object will do it because they won't or can't make it themselves so they're not losing any pattern sales because of it.

Suzee, that makes sense, like saying you can't sell cupcakes at a bake sale if they are from a recipe book that has a copyright on it.
