A question about selling crafts

I'm not an artist, but I do make needlepoint/cross stitch things. A lot of what I make, I keep for my own decoration, but last winter I started working on a huge tapestry project for my boyfriend. Obviously, I'm not going to do anything with this tapestry except frame it and give it to him, but I've been thinking that if I make it again at a later date, I'd like to sell it to make a little money off my hobby.

So my question is: Can I legally do this?

The chart I'm using to make this tapestry isn't mine, it's produced by a company called Leisure Arts. I've already looked around their website to see if there's anything about what I can and can't do with their products and didn't find anything (except for one section that says I can't download their free patterns, then turn around and sell them.) Can anybody help me out? It'd be greatly appreciated.
