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 not check the grammar but 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.
