Pattern Grading Warm Up 2024

A new way to think about garments.

I often hear from people who want to learn to grade knit and crochet patterns, but they feel overwhelmed by the process. They don’t know where to start. They’ve read every blog post they can find, but the advice isn’t consistent, and they’re still confused. 

I’ve seen so many makers struggle to learn pattern grading on their own. That’s why I put together this free workshop: for knitters and crocheters who want a straightforward explanation so they can start grading patterns for themselves and clients. 

Pattern Grading Warm-Up is a free workshop series to help you kickstart your pattern grading education.


Here’s how it’s going to go:

I’m leading a live session on January 25th at 7pm ET. 

The session will be recorded, and replays will be available until February 4th. 

I know you’ll leave the Warm-Up ready to make better fitting, more size inclusive patterns. Last year, some attendees began grading their first garments before the Warm-Up was over!


And this is just the beginning! 

On January 25th, I’ll open enrollment for Pattern Grading Bootcamp (PGB).

PGB is a six-week course that takes you step by step through grading the garment of your choice.

I’ve been teaching pattern grading to knitters and crocheters since 2019. I was tired of seeing plus size makers being excluded and failed by pattern companies and indie designers just as badly as they are by mainstream retailers. The world of DIY is supposed to be a welcoming one for all people. 

This is your chance to be part of the solution. It’s a step towards publishing your first garment design, or supercharging your technical editing services.

If you’re ready to take that step with me, join the Warm-Up so we can get started!


Don’t take my word for it.

Here’s what past students have said about the Warm Up:

Last year over 400 makers joined the Warm Up to learn more about pattern grading and inclusive sizing. Will you be among them?


This is the year you press publish!
