Submission Themes

Knit Picks and WeCrochet are looking for a variety of designs for single pattern downloads, book, and magazine creation. We have provided mood boards of inspirational images and yarns to use, as well specific designs we are looking for. This call is for knit and crochet designs.

Brief Description

Christmas stockings are a wonderful heirloom piece to pass on to future generations. Making stockings for each new child in your family, for each new marriage, for a new home or any special occasion is a great gift idea. Something special to bring out each year and bring back memories of the maker.

Christmas stockings in this collection should be made in worsted, sport or DK weight yarn. This collection will span across the Knit Picks and WeCrochet brands. On the following page you will find a list of stocking themes that we will be including in the collection. Please submit projects that match one of these themes.


All stocking submissions should be one size, approximately 7″ wide and 19″ long. Patterns cannot have been already published elsewhere

Submission Requirements

NOTE: there is a new process for submissions, see below for more information.

NEW Designers: Want to learn more about the submission process? Check out our new class “Get Published” with Tian Connaughton.

About Our Yarn

One-page submission, complete with:

  • Detailed pattern information
  • Suggest yarn
  • Sketch of the design
  • Sizes included
  • Designer bio/contact information
  • If the pattern has a stitch pattern other than solid colored single or double crochet, please include a photograph of a swatch of the stitch pattern on the one-page submission

While swatches do not need to be in suggested yarn, we do suggest a solid, neutral color similar to the intended finished project so we can get a better feel for your pattern.

Include all relevant information on one page. Due to high volume, submissions not in this format may not be accepted.

Patterns cannot have been already published elsewhere. Please do not submit completed patterns. Our intended projects and themes are shown on the inspiration boards. Please keep these in mind when putting together your submission.

Send To

Send your submission via this Google Form. Please keep your file size to under 5MB (there are several free websites to reduce file sizes if needed) as anything larger will bounce.

Other Info

For yarn support, designers must have a US, Canada, Australia, or UK mailing address.  If you do not live in one of these countries you will need to have a shipping address in one of those countries for us to ship to and then facilitate shipping to yourself.

Patterns will be exclusive to the Knit Picks and WeCrochet websites. Designers are welcome to submit more than one pattern idea but each submission must be a separate document. Payments will be made electronically.

Submissions will be accepted through November 22, 2021; designers will be notified of final decisions by December 3, 2021 at the latest. Finished patterns will be due by January 7, 2022. Any other questions may be directed to
