- 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!
