The Knitting Pattern Writing Handbook

How to Write Great Patterns that Knitters Will Love to Make

Kristina McGrath & Sarah Walworth


Knitting patterns are notorious for inaccuracies in measurements and confusing directions – but no more!

The Knitting Pattern Writing Handbook sets new standards for clear, accurate pattern writing, walking aspiring and experienced designers alike through each must-have component of a thorough, well-written pattern, including how to devise and present gauge, charts, and sizing information that is correct and easy-to-follow. With a focus on how to make patterns accessible to contemporary knitters – especially beginning knitters – this much-needed reference book is destined to become a classic in an industry that is beginning to professionalize after decades (even centuries!) of informal and home-based instruction.

There's a burgeoning group of indie knitwear designers eager for this guidance!
