Pattern Editing

I tech edit knitting and crochet patterns using either UK or US terminology.  The following services apply to both knitting and crochet.


  • Check your pattern against your Style Sheet. 
  • Make sure all abbreviations are listed and clear. 
  • Look for spelling mistakes and consistency with grammar and punctuation. 
  • Make sure the maths is correct in the stitch count, tension and sizing. 
  • Make sure the pattern layout flows logically from section to section. 
  • Ensure your photos, schematics and charts agree with the pattern. 
  • Make sure there is a key for the charts.  
  • Can work from a PDF or Word document. 

I charge a flat rate per edit in either GBP Sterling or US Dollars.

My rates include all edits, plus a final read through after the test knitting/crocheting is completed.  When we are both happy with the pattern (prior to test knitting/crocheting), I will send you an invoice through PayPal.  I work to a 5 working day turn around for the first edit.   Finally, when the pattern is released I will showcase it on Instagram.
