Licensing refers to how copyrighted material is used. For your convenience, I have broken this down into the following sections.


For non-profit:

The purchased Knitting Kit supposes one item for non-profit use. This means that you may only charge to cover material costs, and your labour will be given for free. This license agreement covers charity purposes and making gifts for friends and/or family. If you are donating the item, or giving the item to friends and/or family, credit must be given  with details of this website, should anyone else be interested in the origins of the designs and patterns. The designer, Cimdu pasakas should be informed and be able to contact direct by e-mail or phone with the person or organization which receive the donation or a gift. The ready-made item should contain the label with the name of both the designer and the knitter.


For profit:

Each item produced for profit should be provided by 5%  allocation to the designer, Cimdu pasakas. The calculation should be kept due to the percentage out of the knitting kit price on the website. Any mass production and manufacture without my knowledge is permitted. Should you wish to knit or manufacture large quantities from my designs, then please contact me.


Credit must be given to the designer, Cimdu pasakas, where possible with details of this website's URL, preferably on a tag. If the item is to be sold online, the designer's name MUST  be evident to avoid any speculation and makes things easier for everyone.


Where possible, you should charge a reasonable amount for your labour. Many knitters grossly undercharge for their labour when selling their hand-made goods, and this only serves the undervaluing of our crafts. The only way to change this perception is to charge a reasonable amount for our labour, and the labour charge should be greater than the cost of materials, and ideally be minimum wage or above.


Teaching classes based on my patterns and master-classes:

Teaching classes is permitted provided full credit is given to the designer, Cimdu pasakas, for the work.. Photocopying of my patterns is not permitted.
