Knitcircus Podcast #50

Today Jaala and Amy reveal their experiences with the dogs in their lives.

Tips for publishing patterns:

  • get a tech editor and a test knitter
  • for paid patterns, write multiple sizes
  • have kids model patterns for kids
  • photography tips: use outdoor lighting and have multiple images, highlighting construction and stitch patterns, making mood shots for extra credit
  • use Ravelry, Craftsy, or Patternfish to sell your yarns
  • look at magazine standards to develop style guides
  • look at established designers for pattern writing direction and what information to include
