#34 All About Crochet Pattern Writing Standards

Consistent pattern standards set us all up for success.

Whether you’re a crochet designer or someone who only crochets from a pattern, consistency in pattern writing impacts us all. For designers, we need to be aware of how a pattern should be written and make sure our design adheres to those standards. That way everyone who has learned how to read a pattern doesn’t have to re-learn every time they start a new project. It’s pretty obvious when you come across a pattern that wasn’t published professionally.

To help clear any clutter about pattern writing standards as it relates to a designer or maker, I brought on, Julie, from ACCROchet. She talks about the importance of consistency in pattern writing as well as walks us through the key parts of a pattern where consistency is the most important. Julie has been in the pattern writing and translating business for more than ten years. She is a wealth of knowledge and shares so much with us today!
