C O P Y C A T S is a collection of DIY crochet patterns by Los Angeles based designer Erika Maish. Maish’s first book serves as a response to seeing her work being copied online and the prevalent culture of online ‘copycat’ callouts. What if instead of constantly fighting your copycats you worked with them? Historically, luxury fashion brands would sell their patterns for the home crafter to recreate. This practice provides an ethical method of affordable mass production for handcrafted items.
