  2. Karen Brees says:

    Suppose it’s my own design?

  3. Maru says:

    Can crochet projects enter or must it be knitting?

    • Carrol Finlay says:

      You can enter both. The terms of the competition state – There will be one winner on LoveCrochet and one winner on LoveKnitting

  4. Annie says:

    Does this need to be done on a computer vs my iPhone? On my phone I can’t seem to find the “projects” tab.

  5. Carrol Finlay says:

    Your Facebook post for this competition says ‘Share your first crochet project of the year using our and enter to win’ Using our what? Having read your Ts & Cs can I assume the missing word is wool?

  6. Virginia Willis says:

    Most published patterns are copyright and forbid uploading to third party web sites or servers, to follow your instructions would put me at risk of prosecution. Presumably acknowledging the name of the pattern and designer would be sufficient?

  7. Eric says:

    Hi Virginia,

    You’re correct, we wouldn’t want you to give away other people’s patterns, but you can just link to the pattern if it’s available on our website. That way other people can purchase the pattern or download it for free if it’s a free pattern. Thanks!

    Will your app ever be available for non-iPhone users? Or will we forever be left out of the fun & contests? 🙁
