Tech Editing

At the request of some lovely designers, I have begun offering my services as a knitwear tech editor. I have an extensive background in technical writing as a scientist, with an eye for detail and consistency. I will check for consistency and accuracy of grammar and punctuation, use of abbreviations, and clarity of instructions. I will also check all stitch counts, row counts, and length measurements for errors, as well as for consistency with any schematics. Upon request, I will create schematics and stitch pattern charts in Adobe Illustrator, and do custom grading for garments. All edits will be presented as notes in the pattern, and will not be implemented without your approval. I am happy to provide an estimate for each project, and if there’s a likelihood that the project will go over-estimate, I will contact you well in advance of that point to revise the editing strategy. I work quickly and efficiently, minimizing the cost to my customers. No job is too small: if you would like only the wording edited, or only the math checked, do not hesitate to be in touch. Please contact me at ashwinijdesigns [at] gmail [dot] com to discuss a project. References and examples of my work are available upon request.

      I’d be happy to work with you! I was in India for the last 2 weeks (and preparing for the trip prior to that), which is why I had been absent for a bit. But I’m back in the US and happy to get back into designing and editing, so feel free to drop me a line at any point.
