I am a little miffed today!
that does not give you the right to "share" it with whom ever you feel.
The gift was for you.
I spend a lot of time coming up with new designs for my crochet patterns.
How do I do this?
Sketch, draw, pick colors, pick yarn, crochet test items, take pictures, edit pictures, (after many hours of training my dogs) type up the pattern, edit the pattern, test the pattern, have other designers test the pattern, have reg. people test the pattern, edit the pattern,
Before it is even ready to offer it for sale.
It takes many hours of preparation
and work to design a crochet pattern-
I will probably not be giving away
free paid patterns anymore.
I love designing crochet patterns,
I love to give patterns away.
I Love to be generous.
But it saddens me to see my
Crochet patterns shared.
When you do this, it ruins it for everyone.
I am not going to go into the copyright thing,
I am talking about dishonestly, and stealing.
Please, be thoughtful of
Crochet Pattern designers,
and the work they do.
