Sharing Patterns?

Hey ladies, I know that there a TON of places online to get free patterns, but some items that I personally would like to make either has a pattern that is a little bit pricey (for me at this time) or I can't find a pattern for what I am thinking in my head. 


Would any of you like to share patterns?

If I'm not mistaken, "sharing" patterns is a copyright violation.  If you purchase a pattern you do not have the right to scan it and send it around the internet for free.  At least I think that's the way it goes.


However, I know a lot of places that have FREE patterns.  What if we share the websites where we can go and get those?  I'll go first.


Bernat.com
RedHeart.com
Caron.com
LionBrand.com
AllFreeCrochet.com
AllFreeKnitting.com


I don't know if you're part of the Ravelry.com needework community, but you can find some free patterns there too.  (And there are lots of patterns for sale on Ravelry.)

Oh sorry, I didn't mean the ones you actually pay for.  My bad - I meant the ones we create ourselves or augment (not sure if that is allowed). 


I have all those sites marked : ) and I joined Ravelry a month or so ago.  THANKS!!!!

Becca, I used to make up patterns all the time. It's really not that hard. You need to decide what stitch you want your piece done in. Then make a few practice runs to see what your practice piece measures per stitch. For instance, do a practice piece with a foundation of 10 or 15 stitches (or more, if you like) in the stitch pattern of your choice and see what that measures when you are done. Decide on the measurements of the item you want to make and figure out how many stitches to lay your foundation for to achieve that. Keep on going until it's the correct measurements. Seriously, it's a lot of fun to make your own pattern!

The All Free Crochet site will give you links to individuals' blogs where they post their free patterns that they create.
