    I have a small business and I just saw your crochet crown and I would love to sell the finish product on my page. I just made one and I’m about to post it on my page but I wanted to let you know first. It is a beautiful design.

    Hello, I’m trying to start a small crochet business and a client has requested an item made from one of your patterns. May I please have permission to charge a small fee? All my items include a tag that gives credit to the designers. If pictures are posted online I will credit there as well. Thank you.

      I’m sorry I haven’t seen this until now! The patterns in my shop are intended for personal use only, but any free patterns on the blog can be sold as long as credit is given to Waters Wares. :)

    I’ve enjoyed making 2 of your crocheted crowns but not sure which method you recommend to stiffen them. (I’ve used 100% acrylic) I’m also wondering if the FSC beginning row will still “stretch” after stiffening the crown(?) Thanks in advance for your help!

      I have not stiffened any crowns myself, but I would suggest using starch of some sort and just make sure it’s acrylic safe. I think starching it would make it less stretchy, but maybe you could put it around something to stretch it to the size you want after starching it so that as the starch dries the crown will be dried to that size? Sorry I can’t be of more help.

    Hi there! I’m looking to post a crown from your free pattern on my facebook page for sale. Would that be ok if I give pattern credit? http://www.facebook.com/hegivethmoregrace
    Other than messy bun hats, I’ve only sold 4 or 5 of any one item. I like to keep a rotating stock of options for people to browse.
    Thank you for your great work!

      I’m just now seeing this – my spam catcher is having issues lately – but I’ve already seen your work on Instagram, and yes, you are fine to sell them as long as you give credit! :D
