Document Design for Knitting & Crochet Designers
Everyone -

Do you think there's a market for design layout for small or new knitting & crochet designers? I've seen some patterns online that look awesome, and some not so awesome.

As a practitioner of both crafts, and a technical writer/document designer by profession, what I look for in a pattern is that it is attractive, easy to read, not visually distracting, and well laid-out so that I can follow along as I work. It's the same thing that all document users want, but don't always get.

I'm tossing my professional hat (so to speak) into design layout for small business Etsy-type designers who want professionally laid out PDFs to sell to their customers.

What do you look for in a pattern?

And if you're interested in this type of service for your patterns, please let me know by private message and we can discuss off of the message forums.
