Tech Editing


Tech Editing:

I am a TKGA-certified Tech Editor, and a TKGA Master Knitter. I have an eye for detail and a great mathematics background. I am committed to size inclusivity, and my #1 goal is to help you fine-tune your knitting patterns into something that is the best it can be. My rates are very reasonable. I’d love to Tech Edit for you – feel free to contact me and we can discuss what you need!

(Sign up for my Tech Editing Newsletter HERE and check the Tech Editing Newsletter box.)

Base rate: $32/hr. 30 minute minimum ($16.00), with additional time charged at 15 minute increments ($8 per 15 minutes). Feel free to ask for my sample contract.

Basic/simple knitting patterns can be edited in 30 minutes or less typically. (A baseline time estimate is about 15 minutes per page.) If desired, I can provide you with a rough time estimate prior to work beginning, and if I think I will significantly go over that time for any reason I will pause work and notify you in advance.

Other Tech Editing Services: Grading of patterns, chart generating, schematics, instruction writing, and more.

[A signed contract is required before work will begin. I work from Word docs, Google docs, or pdfs. Provide a photo or sketch, and a style sheet as well, if you have one (not all designers have one.) I use tracked changes and comments on Word and Google docs, and highlights and comments on pdfs. Turnaround time varies based on my workload. Please contact me for my current lead-time.]


I also offer consulting services. If you are a designer wanting advice on a design, I’m happy to help troubleshoot and provide some guidance via Zoom.

Possible topics: sizing/grading advice, developing a style sheet, best approach for presenting directions, etc.

Rate: $40/hr. 30-minute minimum. Contact me to arrange a day/time and advance payment.
