For adventurous knitters who are interested in designing their own garments and accessories, and publishing their own patterns.
We'll discuss how to approach a design project, from a concept and yarn to a finished item and a complete pattern that anyone else can follow. We'll share brilliant and math-reducing shortcuts for creating your own designs using existing templates. We’ll talk about grading, and yarn choices, and provide strategies for ensuring your design appeals to as broad an audience as possible.
We’ll also talk about the process around designing: yarn sup-port, submitting to publications, working with technical editors and test knitters. We’ll review key questions about copyright to ensure that you’re always in the clear. And we’ll spend some time on writing up your pattern for publication, and how to ensure that it’s easy to understand and useful for knitters and magazine editors alike.
