Terms of use

We hope that you enjoy using It’s a Stitch Up. We’re always happy to receive feedback! By using this website and our patterns found here, you accept the following terms of use:

Knitting patterns

We make every effort to ensure that patterns are free from errors, but nobody is perfect. Please contact us if you think there is a mistake in a pattern. We can’t offer compensation for errors in patterns, although we will normally issue a refund if you’ve paid for the pattern, and we’ll do our best to publish corrections as soon as possible.

It’s possible that your project will require more or less yarn than the pattern specifies. Everyone knits differently, so take this into account when you’re buying yarn. We cannot offer any compensation if your yarn requirements differ from those stated in the pattern. But again, if you think there is a mistake please Contact us.
