A written pattern, in one size, to be expanded to multiple sizes.
A written pattern, in one or more sizes, to be rewritten in an alternate gauge.
A schematic, sketch, design and construction notes, with gauge and desired measurements, to be written in the designer's preferred style. For simply-shaped garments, at least a swatch is required. For any garment with unusual or complex shaping, a knit sample is required.
Format of Submitted Data
Digital files (PDFs, .doc, .txt, Pages, or AppleWorks files) can be emailed or sent to me via Dropbox (which is an easy online file transfer system.)
Hard copies can be snail mailed.
Knit sample(s) can accompany legible notes.
Turnaround can be as quick as a couple/few days, but can take a few days longer, if the pattern is long or complex.
An average sweater pattern can take approximately 5-10 hours, a hat approximately 4 hours, depending on complexity, number of sizes, and any additional required math, such as including metric calculations.
Naturally, sizing an already-written pattern will go more quickly than writing a pattern from scra tch in several sizes.
