Naming your patterns can be a tricky business – finding just the right word that conveys the mood and feel of your design is a very important part of the design process.
Sometimes when you find the perfect name, you learn later that that same name is already in use elsewhere, and in rare cases has been previously trademarked by another party. We do our best to properly vet all of our pattern names, but once in a blue moon find out that we’ve inadvertently stepped on the toes of another person’s trademarked word.
So was the case with Dianna Walla’s Skydottir pullover from Wool People 6. Dianna was recently contacted by a business in Seattle who has trademarked the name Skydottir and requested that we change the official name of the pattern. We were happy to oblige.
Thanks for listening (internal housekeeping doesn’t always make for the most exciting blog content), and happy weekend to all!
