If you're really concerned, you can write to the author of the pattern and ask her. I'm sure that she'd be willing to talk about it with you. However, on the bottom of the page where she wrote the pattern, she writes:
Oh yeah, this pattern is the property of me (Julie Anderson aka Booga J) and all that good stuff. Feel free to print out a copy for yourself, but please don't sell it. And also, please do not make bags to sell from this pattern.
If you are a yarn store owner and you would like to sell, distribute or use this pattern for a class, or in any other way, please email me to obtain a license. Thanks & Happy Knitting!
Because of that, I would email her: firstname.lastname@example.org
I made a lace scarf for an auction recently, and I bought the pattern specifically for that purpose from the author, who knew why I was looking for the pattern. Since then, the pattern copyright has been sold, but I had permission to use the pattern for that purpose at the time. My scarf did so well that I'm considering doing a sweater or a shawl for next year's auction. Good luck! :cheering:
