Who doesn't like getting things for free? I certainly do. HOWEVER...I like my free things to come to me the RIGHT way!
Pattern Theft has been a huge issue with almost every single pattern writer and designer. There are websites that are dedicated to getting people patterns that have been copied and stolen from the rightful designer. I have seen patterns being stolen from Ravelry, Craftsy, Etsy and right from the designer's own website! People will buy the patterns and then resell them on other sites for virtual coins or credits. People even do this with FREE patterns from the designers too! They will claim to own the patterns, claim they have written the patterns and steal the pattern designer's pictures!
I have taken a pledge to NOT steal designers' patterns! If I get a pattern for free it's because I've won it or it was gifted to me by the designer themselves! If I find someone stealing patterns from designers, I WILL report them! I will do everything in my power to keep this person from selling others' patterns that do not belong to them.
Join me on Facebook and take the pledge to NOT ever steal anyone's patterns and to report the people who are stealing them! You can take the pledge here:
You can also go to this link to report theft yourself:
Thank you for taking the pledge with me to protect our designers who work so hard and have such amazing talent!
I love to crochet for my family, my friends and for others. I find my peace from a crazy day or just to relax and get my creative side going when I pick up a hook and yarn. This blog is my favorite pattern links, favorite projects I've completed and just some general crochet fun!
