About Our Patterns
Can I use your pattern in my class or share with my group?
Absolutely! However, please do not make printed copies of the pattern and redistribute it. Please use the original pattern web page for your presentation.
Can I sell the items I made from your free patterns?
Yes! After all, it’s your hard work invested in finishing the product and you deserve to be compensated for that. When creating your product listings, please reference B.Hooked as the source of the pattern and use your own photography of the product. Do not use the photography from the pattern page. It’s your shop – make it uniquely you!
Can I share your pattern in my round up blog post?
Of course! We’re thrilled you want to share our work with your readers! You may include an unaltered image (with B.Hooked watermark in place) in your post with a direct link back to the pattern here on B.Hooked. No need to get written permission.
Can I translate your work into another language?
We’ve received many offers to translate the patterns and resources on this site into other languages. Because this type of project will require a great deal of time on your part as well as ours, it is not a project we’re going to take on at this time. Please do not publish translations of any of the resources and patterns here without prior written consent.
The pattern doesn’t include the size I need. Is it available in other sizes?
Many of our patterns are graded in different sizes and we do our best to be as inclusive as possible. However, not all of our patterns are available in multiple sizes. We have an ongoing project to update every B.Hooked pattern and making more sizes available is part of that effort. Currently, all available sizes are included in the pattern. If you don’t see a particular size, unfortunately it is not available for the project at that time.
How can I print your patterns?
There are two ways to get downloadable PDF’s of our patterns. Members of our Patreon community have access to PDF patterns as well as ad-free tutorials before they’re published anywhere else. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, learn how to become a B.Hooked Insider here.
Our patterns are also available individually as downloadable PDF’s for sale in our shop. You’ll see a link to buy the PDF on the pattern page or if you’d rather browse, you can see them all here. The PDF will be emailed to you from our eCommerce partner, Spring, immediately after the transaction is complete.
Please do not attempt to print the pattern from the web page. These pages are not formatted for printing and will not turn out as you expect. If you would like a copy in hand, please choose to support B.Hooked by purchasing the PDF we have formatted specifically for print.
I think I found an error in your pattern. Can I tell you about it?
We do everything we can to avoid errors in our patterns but we’re human and sometimes mistakes and typos happen 🙂 We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Please use our contact form to let us know what you found.
Can I use your pattern or videos on my website?
No, you may not reprint or republish any of the content you see on this website or our YouTube channel for personal or professional use without prior written consent from us. All content of this website is copyright of B.Hooked Crochet, LLC. If you would like to share the information you find here with your readers or community, use a link in your post or page that points to the resource or pattern you wish to share.

We’ll do everything we can to accommodate this request but please know that not all requests will be granted.
I found a pattern I want you to make a tutorial for. Can you help?
Unfortunately, we can’t create a tutorial from another designer’s work. Patterns are intellectual property and creating a tutorial for a non-B.Hooked pattern would be a violation of the designer’s intellectual property. Sometimes we work with other designers and brands to create tutorials. These are projects have been agreed upon by both parties.

About the Website or Resources
Why am I seeing ads on your pages and in videos?
In order to keep the patterns and resources here free, we use advertisements as a way to earn a monthly income. Just like you have a regular job, B.Hooked is Brittany’s full time job and the money generated through advertisements and affiliates on this website are her living to support her family.
What crochet hook do you recommend?
We truly believe the perfect crochet hook can be different for every person. However, if you’re looking for a place to start, give Tulip Etimo hooks a try. They’re affordable and honestly, our favorite hooks to use.
What knitting needles do you recommend?
As with crochet hooks, the perfect knitting needle can be different for every person. We’ve tried many different knitting needles but Hiya Hiya needles are our favorites.
