Tech Editing

I offer a full range of standard tech editing services to help make your knitting patterns more professional and bring you repeat customers, including:

  • proofreading
  • checking all stitch counts and measurements
  • checking charts and written instructions for clarity and consistency
  • 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
  • grading of patterns in a range of sizes

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.

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. I am not a translator, but I am conversant in French, Spanish and Turkish.
