I have a question about creating your own pattern.
Recently, I’ve been thinking that I want to make a knitting pattern on my own and sell it.
My question is, 'is it allowed to use the pattern from the book called ‘Japanese knitting stitch bible’ as a basis or inspiration?
I’ve already seen some people sell their pattern that’s directly from a pattern from that book - with very minor change (e.g same pattern and different garment type, etc)
I want to make new patterns based on some of the patterns from this book and I’m wondering if I’m trying to do something that I shouldn’t do.
Hope I can get some clear advice from you all.
