Tech Editing

Are you a knitwear designer who dislikes grading knitting patterns? I can help! I will grade your pattern in whatever size range you choose. I also 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

I am certified as a technical editor through The Knitting Guild Association’s technical editing course. I am also a designer myself – my work has been published in Knitscene, Stripes: Making Stories and Cast On. 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.

I am currently accepting new clients and I offer a first-time client discount. Please contact me at bullockozkandesigns@twc.com for rates and availability.
