Most pieces I’ve crocheted to patterns written by other artists, using my own colour recipes.  Credit is attributed when I’ve used another artist’s pattern. Some patterns were free, others I paid for.  I do not share copies of paid for patterns.

You are welcome to share any of my posts, free patterns, images or tutorials.  If you do, please give credit to Fizzy Petal and link back to this site.  Please do not represent or sell my images, patterns or tutorials as your own.   (Would you believe that people actually do this?!)

Do not share paid for patterns but do feel free to share the links to purchase.

If you use my patterns or colourways in any of your projects – I’ll be totally flattered!   You are free to sell finished works based on Fizzy Petal patterns or colourways so long as you give credit for the pattern or colourway to Fizzy Petal.  Please do not use images of my work as representative of your own.

If the free pattern you are sharing from my site is attributed to another artist/designer/crocheter, please credit that person including a link to their page, pattern or book.

Sharing my successes and failures, I hope will inspire you to embark on your own creative journey in crochet.
