Question for any pattern designers out there....
or anyone who might know.
I have been designing some patterns of my own. I have several stitch books. 365 knitting stitches calendar, the stitionary, etc and so on. Many of my books have the same stitches in them. I am assuming that that means they are common knowledge and I can use them in my own patterns, correct? I mean, feather and fan isn't owned by anyone, right? I have just been going under the assumption that if you can find stitch information in several places, than it is not an original piece of work, and therefore I can use the stitches in my own original designs. Am I wrong?
