Crochet Pattern Writing Training

Write your own unique crochet patterns using universal terms, standards, guidelines and templates!

Turn your creativity into a crochet pattern:

Everything I learned after publishing 400+ patterns, 8 books (and counting), and starting 2 online magazines!

Learn to WRITE crochet patterns!

You may already know how to crochet like a pro, but there is a difference between knowing how to do something and being able to write instructions in a way that anyone can read and follow with success!

  • Publishing 101: Learn about copyrights and plagiarism, especially in the crochet world!
  • How can you make money with patterns: Whether you write for books and magazines, sell patterns individually, or offer content online for free!
  • Pattern templates: An easy-to-use outline so that you can key in your patterns like a pro!
  • Pattern writing format: The language, universal terms, standards and acronyms, math involved in writing complex stitch and row repeats, and more!
  • Pattern Testing: An overview to help you hand-test, and tech-edit, your patterns before you publish them!

In this course we'll cover everything you need to know to translate your crochet work into written instructions!
