However, she discovered there is a broader audience that she could have imagined and worked with Interweave to make sure it was available to more who needed and wanted to learn where to begin. All of these elements have to be thought out by a pattern writer and Kate cheerfully gives helpful advice on things to consider when making decisions. Although, we are all human and knitters can be pretty forgiving, being as professional as possible will go a long way for a designer.

This was a very informative interview … thank you!!!! It made me think about if I was a designer what would I do? I am a designer for my classes and I can guarantee there are many things that I can learn from Kate. Thanks for another great show. I really enjoyed learning about this book. I think that this book would be great for any library because it really covered everything that you would need to know. This would be a great way to understand the mind of a seasoned designer!
If I were a designer I would design beautiful socks! Loved this podcast — full of such useful information! If I were a designer, I would give knitters handy check boxes to keep track of repeats! Thanks for the wonderful and incredible interview.

This has inspired me to write down a few of my designs that have been rolling around in my brain. This is going to be a great resource for that. I loved this.
I really want to get this book. I want to design baby things for my son, stuffed toys and clothing. I think I might need to get this book. If I were a designer I would design garments for warm climates. Sadly it is so hot in Texas I never get to wear my knits nearly as much as I would like.
