The Small Print
Please read this page carefully. By downloading or purchasing these patterns and/or books, you are automatically agreeing to these terms. Failure to abide by these terms could result in legal action being taken. That said, I'm sure you'll find the terms to be civilised.
As a UK national, all the patterns and tutorials designed and written by Woolly Wormhead are therefore covered by UK Copyright & Design Rights Law. You may find the UK laws more restrictive than that of other countries.
This means that no part of the information provided, whether it be free pattern PDF's, photos or text, any part of the book or pattern content, may be distributed without the permission of the copyright holder, Woolly Wormhead. That is why you are asked to link to the pages on this website rather than distribute the PDF's yourself.
In the UK we also have automatic design rights. Whilst some may consider this a grey area, all work produced is covered by this and I suggest you read more information from the link provided above.
Licensing refers to how copyrighted material is used. For your convenience, I have broken this down into the following sections.
Making items to sell from my patterns and books:
I also ask that if you are selling the item (particularly online) that you state that permission has been granted, as this avoids any speculation and makes things easier for both parties.
Credit must be given to the designer (Woolly Wormhead) where possible with details of this website's URL, preferably on a tag. If the item is to be sold online, the designer's name must be evident. I also ask that if you are selling the item (particularly online) that you state that permission has been granted, as this avoids any speculation and makes things easier for both parties.
Teaching classes is permitted provided full credit is given to the designer & publisher for the work. This means that if you are using a free pattern, the class attendees should download and print their own copy. Likewise, if you are teaching from one of the paid-for patterns, one copy for each student must be purchased. Photocopying of my patterns is not permitted.
I am more than happy for my patterns and tutorials to be used for classes so permission to use them is not needed, provided the above terms are complied with. The designer name and website link must remain on the patterns/books/tutorials, and where possible, any advertisement for the class that uses my work should also include my details.
I am more than happy for you to use my work for promotion, such as making samples for an LYS, provided again credit is given and information regarding the source is readily available.
