Q. Knitty's patterns are free? Really?
A. Yes, they're free for your personal, individual use. You may print out a copy to work with. But you may not print out multiple copies, you may not reformat the pattern for commercial use, and you may not sell them or items made FROM Knitty patterns. The copyright for each pattern and article belongs to the designer or author. Any usage beyond what's mentioned here must be negotiated with the designer or author.

If you should see evidence of a violation of copyright, please let the designer know. Their e-mail address can be found at the bottom of their pattern. We appreciate your assistance.
