It really bugs me to see a pattern and someone put disclaimers like this person did. Patterns are not necessarily covered under copyright laws. Items made from the patterns are definitely not, therefore dictating that the items are not to be sold is completely unenforceable and ridiculous. If this person wants to control that much, get a patent on the pattern and product and MAYBE she'll have a case. There is nothing unique or special about this sweater. "Any finished product made from a copyrighted pattern, step-by-step instructions, chart, or photograph is also covered under copyright law. False, false, false. See Adelman v Sonners & Gordon just above. The pattern, not the end product, is the subject of the registered copyright. But again, patterns are not generally copyrightable. And clothing is not copyrightable. Imagine if Simplicity had a registered copyright on the pattern for an apron. Simplicity could then prevent all others from designing and selling patterns for making aprons. Because, really, how many different ways are there to make an apron? To allow such copyright registrations would be to grant virtual federal monopolies to companies. In Baker v Selden, 101 US 99 (1879), the Supreme Court specifically addressed the issue of whether or not something made from copyrighted information in a book was covered by the copyright on that book. The Court said, "The mere statement of the proposition is so evident, that it requires hardly any argument to support it." The Supreme Court felt the whole idea was so obvious that it took little explanation but it explained it anyway....... == ks/CopyrightLaw/Patterns.shtml

It is a very simple man's sweater. Look beyond the yarn used and choose one you would like. That is what all crochet and knit patterns are for. Someone else does the math and the stitch patterns and you get to become very creative with your yarn.

The picture is not great, the yarn is more womanly. If it was in a brown or even a nice solid blue it would look like it was more for a man.

I think the yarn is terrible, my 2 men wouldn't wear it.

It's hard to judge because the photo is not very good for seeing the shape of the sweater. However, the type of yarn selected is simply awful.
