Fine Print: We are absolutely flattered that our crafty friends would want to make cute items from our original copyright patterns to sell in their online shops or brick and mortar stores. We are thrilled to grant that permission. We do, however, request that anywhere the item is for sale, (on each and every online listing OR on each item in your brick and mortar store that a Simply Notable pattern has been used), that you link back to us here at Simply Notable so others can enjoy the same free pattern you utilized. When you sprinkle the Simply Notable love back our way in the form of links, it lets us know how much you appreciate the free patterns we’ve shared. The only hard line we draw here at Simply Notable is that the free patterns themselves absolutely cannot be sold.

    Always looking for a way to use up sock yarn leftovers. Got bags of ’em! I love this – gonna share it with my knitting group.

      Thanks for sharing us, Ila! I agree – the sock leftovers would take over if I didn’t find ways to use them up. Finding ways to use them is my joy! :-)
