Services

Hello, as well as designing and publishing crochet and some knitting patterns I also offer the following services.  Please contact me for more information or a quote.

Custom Crochet Blankets

If there is a pattern you have seen that you would like to be made or if you have seen stitches/colours or ideas for a blanket I am happy to discuss creating it for you.  Prices are based on the cost of the yarn, complexity of the pattern and any deadlines you might have for it to be made.  Have a look over at my Ravelry page to see what I've been up to.

Knitting Tech Editing

If you are designing and selling knitting patterns, are they the best they could be?

Do you have a consistent style so that your followers know immediately that it’s your pattern?

Do you get queries from tester knitters and/or the people buying your pattern about stitch counts, rows or pattern repeats?

Is there really going to be enough yarn to make the item in all the sizes you want to?

As a Tech Editor I can help you with all of this so that your pattern stands out as being accurate with a great flow.

I have completed a comprehensive tech editing course with Carol Ibbetson of the Cool Wool School.

I offer a knitting tech editing service that includes checking the pattern, chart and schematics to make sure it turns out as you envisaged it would for all the sizes.  I can help in creating charts and also calculate the yarn amounts based on just a single sample size.

I have a real eye for detail, being a designer myself and also from previous careers in law.  I will work hand in hand with you to present your design in a logical way which really reflects who you are as a designer. 

I am happy to check all garment types, accessories and toys. So please contact me so that we can discuss what you are looking for and so I can give you a quote.

Amigurumi Design

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.  I love creating animals and characters and have designed Mr Tumnus and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum to name a few.  Contact me if there is something you would like created.
