Creating Knitting Patterns, Day 12: Knitting Pattern Templates

Welcome to Day 12 of the Complete Guide to Creating Knitting Patterns series! Today, we are going to talk about knitting pattern templates. Why are they important, what are they good for and where can you find templates to start with?

Why Use Knitting Pattern Templates?

If you intend to publish more than just a single knitting pattern you should consider creating your own knitting pattern templates. You and your customers will benefit from it for the following reasons:
  • It helps with branding: using knitting pattern templates creates a consistent look & feel in your pattern library.
  • Reusing proven templates makes your patterns less prone to errors and prevents missing elements in your patterns.

You can use the knitting pattern templates provided below as a guide. Feel free to adapt them to your needs!

    Thanks so much for sharing the great .docx template. I am creating a pattern for a charity project and your template was exactly what I needed.
