Pattern Ghostwriting


You possess a brilliant idea for a knitting pattern, but capturing it on paper proves challenging. Life’s curveballs have interrupted your progress, or you’re unsure about the next steps after creating a beautiful sample. As a talented yarn dyer, you may dream of offering patterns but feel uncertain about integrating them into your business. Fear not, for a ghostwriter is here to lend a hand!

As a specialized ghostwriter, we focus on crafting knitting patterns for accessories, including scarves, hats, mittens, shawls, cowls, and socks. Together, we’ll bring your knitting vision to life in a seamless pattern collaboration.


What to Expect from Ghostwriting

When you entrust us with your idea, rest assured that the pattern will reflect your creative style, as if you had crafted it yourself. Here’s what you’ll receive:

  • A pattern aligned with your style sheet, capturing your unique essence.
  • Graded patterns for multiple sizes (if applicable), complete with yardage requirements for each size.
  • A meticulously reviewed pattern by our technical editor for grading and technical accuracy.
  • Inclusion of charts, schematics, and written directions, as needed.
  • A ready-to-test pattern, saving you valuable time and effort.

The ghostwriting process typically spans 3-4 weeks from start to finish, with the cost varying based on project type, number of sizes, and pattern complexity. Prices typically range from $200 to $800 per design, encompassing all the aforementioned services.

This is a highly professional service that values confidentiality and respects your intellectual property. At rhyFlower Knits, we understand the worth of your creative work and treat all files sent to us with strict confidentiality. Rest assured that your patterns, charts, schematics, and any other materials remain secure and protected throughout the process. Once the project is complete, we do not retain any of your intellectual property, granting you full ownership and control over your designs. Our commitment to professionalism extends beyond; it includes safeguarding your creative assets and respecting your unique vision. Partner with us for services that prioritize the integrity of your work and maintain the confidentiality you deserve.


Extra Services for Added Convenience

Elevate your knitting pattern’s accessibility and user-friendliness with these additional services:

  • Accessibility formatting: Low-Visibility and Screen-reader-accessible versions, expanding your reach within the knitting community.
  • Drafting the pattern on Ravelry – a hassle-free “publish” button is all you need!
  • Test knitting process management: If you choose this option, please allow an extra 4-8 weeks for turnaround time, as testers require sufficient time to work up the pattern.


Open Communication – Your Success is Our Priority

We take pride in prompt and responsive communication, offering the support and feedback you need throughout the process. Our goal is to ensure seamless collaboration, addressing any concerns about your design as needed. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 12:00 pm MST. While we are available via email at all times, please understand that responses outside of my office hours may experience slight delays until the next business day. Rest assured, we am committed to accommodating your needs and responding promptly throughout the entire process.

So, let’s set those knitting needles in motion and breathe life into your creative ideas! We eagerly await the opportunity to work with you. To explore more services, click here.
