To complement her comprehensive piece on Removing Barriers in Written Craft Patterns, Nicky Jensen has prepared a template for yarn-craft designers to use when creating an accessible version of a pattern.

Below you’ll find a link to download the template as a rich text format document (.rtf), which you may use in any word processing application; and you will find a link to copy a Google Doc version of the template to your own Google Drive.

Please note that some styles in the template differ from our general pattern styles here at Digits & Threads. This is because the accessible pattern template is designed to be read aloud by a screen reader.
