Hey! I have been crocheting for going on ten years, so I would say I’ve built up some skill in that time. But I have a really hard time understanding some legal things about purchased patterns. I have bought a few patterns recently, they have not been ideal for my goal but I started using the patterns and after a few tries I realized that I actually have the experience to create what I wanted without a pattern, of course it resembles the ones I’ve purchased but I’ve altered it quite a bit. So, does that make it my own pattern or is that copyright infringement?
I could not find the right topic for my question so I hope this is okay and that someone can help me.
Thank you in advance 🥰
