Writing Crochet: Line of Instruction Styles
How do I write crochet instructions? You know the parts of a pattern, but you need help writing the actual lines of instruction in your pattern? This guide is here for you! I will walk you through the questions you need to ask and answer when setting up your style of writing. You will learn a variety of styles that are acceptable when writing crochet patterns. Yes, crochet can be written in lots of ways. You can have your own style and be consistent for your readers. The more consistent you are from one pattern to another, the happier your readers will be. When you write in a more common, industry accepted manner, your readers will be happier. Happy readers make for return readers. Return readers = more $$
