Knitting Technical Editing

General Technical Editing

I offer general technical editing services for knitting patterns. Contact me to learn more about current rates and turnaround times!


  • Basic editing & proofreading for spelling and grammatical errors
  • Checking math, conversions, and grading
  • Verifying completeness and clarity of instructions
  • Ensuring stylistic consistency throughout the pattern, checking against a style sheet if one is provided

Optional add-ons:

  • Creating a style sheet if you do not already have one
  • Generating or translating charts, verifying charts match written instructions
  • Test knitting administrative support
  • Sample knitting

Not offered:

  • Pattern grading – I will check your math/spreadsheet and provide guidance for you to grade a size-inclusive pattern, but I currently do not grade patterns myself.
  • Drawing schematics – I will check your schematic and measurements but I do not draw schematics myself.

New Designer Special

Save on tech editing services for your first pattern!

I love working with new designers and ensuring they are set up for success, but I know sometimes the cost of technical editing or concerns around the process can be a substantial barrier. To combat this, I’m offering new designers an exclusive package to help get their first pattern published: 5 hours of general tech editing services and/or optional add-ons for a low, flat fee. Contact me to find out more!

Virtual Meet & Greet

For potential new clients, I offer a free 30-minute meet & greet over video chat where we can discuss your pattern, your timeline, and whether I am the right tech editor for you. If you don’t know where to start when it comes to tech editing, let’s chat!

Please note that a Meet & Greet session will not include any tech editing services. You are also under no obligation to hire me if it turns out I am not the right tech editor for you.
