TECHNICAL EDITING FOR KNITTING
Make your patterns shine
Either you are just starting your design journey or are an experienced designer with a well-known portfolio I believe I can help you to ensure your patterns are clear and concise. I will read through the pattern, trying to knit along in my head, and also I will run all kinds of calculations in my magical spreadsheets to verify that your numbers are solid.
Being a non-native English speaker I will check the grammar to the best of my abilities and I will communicate all unclear phrases and possible mistakes.
Helping you to make patterns even better and more accessible
I can help you in more ways than just edit. Please let me know if you need help with:
drawing charts from written instructions;
making written instructions from charts;
help with grading. I do not do grading for adult garments yet but I can help you with children's garments, socks, mittens, hats, etc.
pattern translation from/to English/Latvian/Russian languages.
Agnese Bāriņa, creator of knitting planner R.adītprieks
While working on a new knitting&crochet planner project R.adītprieks, I started a collaboration with Jekaterina. The planner is in Latvian language and I wanted to support crafters in every
possible way, so Jekaterina helped me to create glossary and dictionary for English and Russian knitting terms and main stitch patterns. This collaboration was unique, complex, and time-consuming. Together we found the best solutions for the project, working closely for several months. During this time I found Jekaterina as a precise and responsible partner. She works professionally, especially focusing on quality and precision.
Also I would like to mention that Jekaterina always did what she promised on time, even before
the agreed date. I would highly recommend collaboration for high quality and exceptional communication.
