If I just write down the instructions to make that one sweater from the magazine, am I infringing copyright by doing this?

Yes, you are infringing copyright. The instructions printed in the magazine are most likely protected by copyright. Infringement of copyright in a literary work doesn\’t have to be carried out using a photocopier; you can infringe copyright by hand.
