Tian Connaughton // KnitDesigns by Tian

My name is Tian and I’ve been designing, tech editing, and helping makers achieve their goals for over a decade, working for major brands such as Knit Picks, Interweave, I Like Knitting, and I Like Crochet. She also spends time working with independent designers.

When I created my first design, I didn’t know what I was doing. there were no resources, so I learned everything I could about designing, tech editing, publishing. I spent months and years on Google trying to figure it all out and make sense of all the conflicting advise I was finding in forums. It was overwhelming and frustrating.

Well, I finally figured it all out and along the way, discovered I had a passion for helping other crocheters and knitters. Not only this, I realized I’ve developed an easy, step-by-step process for writing and launching new designs that was perfect for beginner and experienced designers. Now, that’s what I teach and coach my clients on, and the quality I bring to each tech editing project.
