Hey, Crochet Designers!

Do you struggle to get your ideas written down?

Are you frustrated with the time it takes to write pattern instructions?

Is too much of your time spent answering questions from your customers?

You may be a brand-new designer just learning the ropes. You may have been writing patterns for a while. You may be a technical editor checking others' patterns. Or you may just be curious about how crochet patterns are written.

Whatever your experience level, you want patterns that are as clear and accurate as possible.

BUT you don't want to waste hours and hours on each design!

Streamline Your Pattern Writing

Believe it or not, I find it fun to figure out ways to make challenging instructions understandable!

And I'm pretty lazy. I like to be efficient as possible.

What You'll Do

In 18 self-paced lessons of the Crochet Pattern Writing Workshop online course, you will:

  • Watch videos, read lessons, and use real-life examples and exercises to practice your pattern-writing skills
  • Develop templates and style sheets to save time and effort each time you start a new pattern
  • Learn to write for a specific audience
  • Understand why the "repeat paradox" trips up so many people
  • Grasp why chunking information is crucial
  • Communicate your designs clearly, concisely and consistently.

Note that the Crochet Pattern Writing Workshop is not a how-to-design class. You won't be doing math. 

You will be developing a system of designing and writing patterns that will serve you well for years to come.
