Will I learn how to edit my own patterns?

No.  If you are a designer, this course could help you to know where a TE is looking for certain kinds of mistakes, but there is no replacement for a separate set of eyes reading your pattern.  We simply cannot edit our own work, our brains won’t allow it.

Will I learn EVERYTHING about how to edit a pattern?

No, this is not a course to cover every single type of thing to look for or correct in a pattern.  Crochet covers a wide variety of types and styles.  Each crochet designer is unique, too.  This course will give you the tools you need to get started on your own career.

Will I learn how to use editing platforms?

Yes, this course will show you tutorials in using common document editing software, spreadsheet programs, pdf editing software, and trello.

How much is this course?

The full list price is $189.

Not exactly. A Simple Guide to Grading crochet shows much of the life of a pattern.  This course is not about pattern design or pattern creation.  This course focuses on the role of the tech editor.

Will I learn how to professionally talk to designers/clients?

Yes, I will give you some tips for talking with designers

Will I learn the proper terminology for crochet patterns?

Yes, but I follow the Craft Yarn Council for US terminology and their information is free for all.
