Just finished reading this wonderful resource so thought I’d share. The book is:
The Knitgrrl Guide to Professional Knitwear Design by Shannon Okey of knitgrrl.com
If you are contemplating or have entered the exciting arena of knitwear design, this book is a great resource for the ‘business’ end of being a designer. Topics included in the book are:
- utilizing social media
- extended business oportunities to explore
- the dreaded ‘c’ word
- software for designing and charting
- sources for sketching your designs
- sales venues
- writing book proposals
- effective photography
- and interviews with 32 top-name designers who generously share their experiences and expertise.
This little book contains priceless information on the business side of design.
