To help Happy in Red expand, cover costs of running the site and to keep producing free crochet patterns and tutorials, some advertising and affiliate links are run on my website. Affiliate links earn me a small commission (trust me, very small) on any purchases made when visiting these links. You can trust me that I will never work for a party that I don’t trust or is ill-fitted to be a partner of Happy in Red. The nature of any cooperation is always mentioned. Simply put: I don’t work with brands that I don’t trust, have nothing to do with crafting or offer poor customer service. You can see an overview of the brands that I sometimes work with, in the sidebar of my blog.
