Wouldn't it not be a copyright infringement if you posted the pattern with a link to the DNA scarf, saying "insert cable found here" (in other words, if you didn't actually reproduce the pattern)?

This copyright stuff is hard! Embarrassed Once again, I'm not a lawyer but as far as I know, copyright owners have a bunch of different rights, including the right to control how their copyrighted thing is used. So in this case, the owner might be able to say that she didn't want the chart used in any other situation other than the scarf. That's why some pattern writers only sell you paper copies of their patterns, to only be used with their yarns. Sometimes they actually say that you can't make the pattern with any other yarn than the one specified because they want control over how each and every finished garment looks. This is definitely not that type of situation, but it never hurts to ask, right?

I've emailed June, the creator of the cable, so I'll let you know what she says. The way I have the pattern written, it references two different lace charts and the original cable chart outside of my written instructions for shaping and construction.

When I worked in publishing, I spent a lot of time requesting permission to use photos and artwork that appeared in other books. Our procedure was trace it to the source, get permission, and then cite it -- that seemed to satisfy everyone, including legal.   Grin I can't imagine the protocol would differ much when translated to the knitting world.

What a nice person! Here's what she says:

"Absolutely, feel free to pass the chart URL with your pattern. It's
freely available online (for almost 7 years now, can you believe it?)
exactly b/c I want people to incorporate it into their own work."

I'll finish typing up the pattern tonight!

Yay! I hope the yarn I already have waiting to be made into a summer top is right for this. If not, I'm definitely buying more. This is a "must-knit-now"!!

Okay, the pattern is up on my blog! Grin

I added in the chart that was missing when I first posted it, so everything should be there now.

Oh yeah, and I can add smaller or larger sizes if anyone needs them -- just let me know!

THANK YOU so much for the pattern.  It is gorgeous.  I work in a lab, so can't wait to knit this up and go into work wearing it!  I love the look of yours, so I am curious what yarn you used.  I need to finish up a few projects, but think I might get started on this next.  Thank you again, it is brilliant!

I used Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK cotton in a discontinued color. I wasn't crazy about the color at first but I think I like it now.

I am trying out Rowan All Seasons Cotton, in a cream color. I've done the ribbing and one pattern repeat of the front. That's probably all I'll get to do tonight, but I really like it! It's fun to knit and is looking cute already. I do wish the cable was standing out a lil more, but I didn't expect it to stand out as much as it would with wool; I have heard that is just how cotton does with cables. Anyway, I thought I'd let anyone who wants to knit this pattern know that Chart B, the Torchon lace on the knitting-and.com website, has a mistake if you're trying to use the written part... at least I think so, because I tried the written out words, and kept wondering why I had so many stitches left, but when I looked at the chart and did it, everything worked out fine. I don't know for sure, but comparing the words to the chart, it appears that the written version left out a knit 3 stitches, yarn over. Squeakyweasels, did you notice that at all? Thanks so much for this pattern; I know I am going to love my top! Smiley
