“Kerry’s technical editing services are clearly communicated, timely, and incredibly effective. She diligently and meticulously turns pattern numbers into clear designs.”Hannah Graham
“Kerry is thorough, accurate, and very professional. She is good at estimating how long a job will take, gets back to me when she says she will, and clearly explains her comments and corrections. I always feel confident that my patterns have been carefully edited.”Valerie Hobbs/laughingstar knits
I offer a full range of knitting tech editing services to help make your patterns more professional and bring you repeat customers, including:

- checking style and abbreviations against your style sheet
- help in creating a style sheet if you don’t have one
- pattern schematics
- chart creation using Stitchmastery
I am certified as a technical editor through The Knitting Guild Association’s technical editing course, and have worked with both independent designers and yarn companies such as WEBS and Brooklyn Tweed. You can see some of the patterns I’ve edited in this Ravelry bundle.
I am also a designer myself – my work has been published in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Stripes: Making Stories, Spin Off, and others. Before becoming a designer, I worked as a research engineer, and have extensive experience in technical writing and editing. While I don’t currently offer translation services, I am conversant in French, Spanish and Turkish.
