Sometimes you download a free knitting pattern, and start
out all excited, and soon you feel hopelessly lost in confusing instructions, mysterious
abbreviations, or eye-boggling charts.
If you are a designer, you don’t want all your hard work to
be in vain. Your professional reputation is too valuable to risk
even a single bad review. Before you upload or publish, send it to me and I’ll
check it for usability.
I have been a professional proofreader for over 25 years, and I have been a knitter for even longer. I can relate to anyone trying to
get practical advice via the written word and two-dimensional graphics, and can
offer both a beginner’s perspective and a veteran’s experience.
Send me a copy of your pattern and I will give it a thorough inspection for typos, grammar errors, and procedural mistakes, and suggest edits that
will increase the clarity of your copy. I can add comments
to enhance the marketability of your pattern. After adding comments and tracking changes, I will upload the revised document.
Together, we will improve the quality of the knitter’s
experience with your pattern, or the quality of your own experience with that free download.
