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.

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!
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'
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 have learned a lot by working with you, which in turn has a positive effect on my pattern writing style. You see things others can't and your communication is clear and transparent.
It's always a pleasure to work with you, your expertise is highly appreciated.
I appreciate to no end that you are always happy to answer my many questions. It is fun to work with you.
Everything was very clear. Thank you again for the always thorough editing!
I learn a lot from your editing every time. Thank you so much!
