Selling Knitted Items
Hey you all! I have a little store online and was wondering if there were patterns out there that allowed you to sell items made from it. Or if you know of patterns where they allow you to buy a cottage license. I am looking for mostly kids hats, clothing, shoes, toys, etc. TIA

OTN: dress for a friend's little girl, playfood

In Line: shorties for a trade, fruits and veggies for a swap, stuff to stock on my store, and then sweater for dd

You would have to get express permission, in writing, from the copyright holders of the patterns.

You're always better off to do your own designs for sale.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

I asked a similar question this morning and got a few people to weigh in (see the General Knitting Forum) but yes, it seems like the best and safest way to go is to design your own. I don't know yet if anyone would allow the sale of items made from their pattern, but most of the patterns say that they are expressly not for commercial use.

So I'm going to learn how to make up patterns! {sigh}
