Copyright protection in the books likely also means that the patterns contained therein are also protected by copyright law. If you copy - you can be sued by the copyright owner - especially if you commercialize the products. Better for you to make your own unique designs - for which you would then be the copyright owner.

Yes, you can. Only the book itself if copyrighted.
