You need to look at the specific terms of use to determine whether or not you can legally use the designs you find.

If someone posts something online for use and says personal use only, you can’t legally reproduce it for sale. If they say you can’t sell the design or pattern itself but can use the pattern to make things for sale, you’re ok, usually, within any limitations the creator may have set.

If you can’t find the terms of use, contact the poster/author; if you can’t get a hold of them, err on the side of caution and don’t use the pattern to make things for sale.
