Write Professional Crochet Patterns for Publication
By Lolaness (http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/1488/lolaness.html), published May 06, 2007
Crochet is a big business, and avid crocheters are always looking for something new to inspire their creativity. This is good news, since it means there's a constant market for patterns - if you're a crafter and want to see your ideas published, there's no time like the present to get started.
Before you even get going, take a deep breath and relax. Know now that you will probably stress out at least once, and several times you'll kick yourself believing that your ideas aren't "good enough". Don't let self-doubt stop you. Instead, take it as a sign that you need a break. Go do something completely un-crafty, clear your mind, and come back to your project refreshed.
Anyone with an ounce of creativity can have their crochet patterns published. Want to make a bigger mark than just "anyone"? Good! Everything you need to know to professionally create your crochet pattern and get it published is in this guide.
I received this in an email from a friend. I do not know if this was shared already, so I thought I would share; I hope it will be useful.
