Pattern Policies

You may make and sell any items made from my patterns, but please link back to my blog post or Loops and Love Crochet.

If you are selling something you made from a Loops and Love Crochet pattern (especially on Etsy, Facebook, Instagram, etc.), or are posting about the pattern on your own space, please provide a link to the pattern you are using, rather than copy and pasting it on your page.

Please do not copy my patterns or posts and claim them as your own. Please do not re-publish my photos as your own.

Thank you for respecting the many hours that go into designing and writing new crochet patterns.

Thank you for supporting Loops and Love Crochet.
