Selling a lace scarf design?

cross-posted to Ravelry's 'Lace Knitters group':

I am wondering what people think about whether I should try to sell a lace scarf design that I have put together. I say put together because I have combined a lace stitch pattern found elsewhere with my on-the-fly make-it-up-as-I-go-along how-can-I-make-this-look-how-I-want-it-to-look knitted-twice-and-improved-the-second-time finally-written-down mode of knitting. I think that it is a design that others would like to knit and am wondering whether I would/should be able to sell it as a pattern when the lace stitch-pattern was reused from another (free KAL dishcloth pattern reused in turn with permission from another) designer's design. Then I wonder how much I should charge for it, if I do sell it.

Any thoughts/advice?
