I specialise in working with non-native English speakers. Having lived and worked abroad, I understand the challenges that come from working in a language that isn't your first. I work with patterns in English, German, Swedish, French, Italian, Dutch and more.

5 years working in technical communication at a software company
Working with knitting and crochet designers professionally since October 2015
As well as being a total yarn head, I'm an absolute nerd when it comes to knitting & crochet patterns. Whether it is style guides, information architecture, lace charting, or working out how to describe a new technique in 10 words or less, I love all of it. I really want to do this work for you!
My customers have often given me feedback that my patterns are well written and I have James to thank for that. He does find everything with his eagle eyes!
I learn a lot from your editing every time. Thank you so much!
I want to thank you for all of your help with my patterns, I have been really impressed with your service and advice and I won't hesitate to recommend your services to other designers.
Thank you for getting my instructions really easy to understand. I get really good feedback: 'Julia’s pattern and instructions are SO clear and well written ... [her] instructions were a dream'
I appreciate to no end that you are always happy to answer my many questions. It is fun to work with you.
It's always a pleasure to work with you, your expertise is highly appreciated.
