Selling patterns

All,

I get a lot of emails from time to time asking about selling Hanne patterns, copyright issues, etc. I very much appreciate that the majority of you come to me first before posting on the blog. Here are my thoughts on the issue.

Think of the original pattern that comes in your kit as a book. Obviously you can't copy this and distribute to others, but you can make one copy for your own use to mark on, etc. When you are done with the book (or pattern in this case), you can sell it on ebay or in a used book store or whatever. Likewise, you should be able to sell your original pattern when you are done with it.

I do not want this knitalong to become a buying/selling forum, but I also understand that once someone has completed a pattern, they might want to sell it and as we've seen, there are definitely those who are interested in purchasing just the pattern. So, I will allow you to post when you have a pattern for sale or are interested in buying, but you must post your email address so that interested parties can respond to you directly (and also please request this in your post so others don't forget). Other than the initial post, I would appreciate it if the discussion would please occur off the list.

I hope this meets everyone's needs. Please let me know if you have comments or suggestions.

Thanks,
Becky

I would like to knit the Hanne Falkenberg "Plisse" sweater. Unfortunately the kit comes only in wool which is just too itchy for me. Does anyone have a pattern to sell. Please contact me at my email address - jwagstrom@yahoo.com

Thank you and Happy Holidays

I also can't wear wool, so the kit is not practical for me. I would love to buy the Ballerina pattern, if anyone is interested in selling.
Please contact me at jazzy@tml.com.

I would like to knit the Hanne Falkenberg "Diva" sweater/coat, but would like to just buy the pattern and not the kit - greenthumb.jones@gmail.com

I too have wool issues which make the kits impossible, but have fallen in love with the new pattern "Summertime". If anyone is done with theirs, please contact me at kaylaf@mindspring.com. Cheers!

Like the others, I cannot wear 100% wool, but still would like a Mariager or Pygmalion pattern. If anyone out there has either pattern for sale please contact me at jrmac46@yahoolcom

I am very sensitive to wool, but am very interested in knitting a Hanne Falkenberg sweater. In particular, if you have the pattern for Lagune, Plisse, Mermaid, or Cordelia for sale I would very much like to hear from you. Thank you.

I'm in despair, last month a flood destroyed almost all in the house and I lost my yarn stash, I had 8 Hanne kits, by miracle I just found yarn,picture and label of my Cordelia kit, I could send you a photo of it that proove I had it ! But impossible to find the pattern, the moving society employees put all yarns from the plastic bags as they didn't know the value and importance of it, the others parcels are destroyed,I supppose the pattern was on one of them, who could help me to knit Cordelia ? That's crazy to have the kit and no more the pattern, I contacted Hanne with a picture but no answer yet even she could see I had the complete kit.I hope somebody could help me, I'ma HF fan and I knitted many of hers.Sincerely

I would love to buy a pattern (only) for Mermaid or Pygmalion, or possibly a kit that someone has purchased but not knit, that they'd part with at a discount... I love her designs, but just can't invest that amount for a sweater. Thanks. sewwhat20@juno.com

I love the Hanne Falkenberg pattern Lascala but the yarn in the kit is just too scratchy for me. I emailed Hanne and asked if a yarn substitution is possible. Sadly no. Does anyone have the pattern and willing to sell it to me?

Thanks.

Carolyn said...

Didn't realize patterns were only available in kits until I left my pattern on a plane (hazzard of knitting while flying) I'm working on Mariager #12 and like some of you now can't finish it. Too pricey to purchase another kit just for the pattern. Can I buy a pattern from anyone?? PLEASE
e-mail:meanbean@comcast.net

thread said...

I lost a patten in a house move and wrote to HF. Fortunately they had me on their data base from an initial purchase, believed me and sent the pattern.

On the one occasion I passed a pattern on for free I didn't even get a thank you.

I would love to buy the Hanne Falkenberg DaCapo sweater pattern. Like many other writer/knitters, wool is just too itchy and I can't buy the kit for that reason. Is there anyone willing to sell this DaCapo pattern?

Melissa said...

Since I am unable to wear or work with wool I was wondering if anyone had a HF "Ballerina" pattern they are no longer wanting? Also what would you recommend for an alternative yarn - I was wanting to use my bamboo cotton - just wondering what other types of yarn everyone has used.

Thanks so much,
Melissa
