I've been knitting for a number of years and am to the point when I look at a pattern, I find places where I would change it to make it better for me. I make notes, should I want to repeat the pattern.
If someone where to ask for the pattern of what I made, would there be copyright issues if I said something to the effect, at the beginning, "Adapted from pattern # _____ from Lion Brand".
Just curious because I am working on wristletts (fingerless gloves) that I've used a different weight yarn, changed the overall length of the item, added a few stitches, and changed how some of the rows are knit or purled.
FWIW - I haven't checked, yet, to see if the actual pattern is copy righted yet.
