Over at WeCrochet we are planning our August collection for 2023! We have one collection for submissions and all details are below. Keep reading to the bottom of this post to see more information about submission dates, rates, yarn support and other important information.
August Submission Call-Long Sweaters for Leggings
Getting ready for a casual meet up with friends for brunch you grab your favorite leggings and need the perfect sweater to pair with it. We are looking for longer sweaters with AMAZING DRAPE. Sweaters should be around 29” long (at a minimum) and should have an oversized feel of at least 8-10” positive ease. Sweaters should have a casual feel and can be a pullover, cardigan and can have any neckline.
This call is for crochet designs only.
- Submission Deadline: February 7, 2023
- Notification of Acceptance: February 9, 2023
- Finished Pattern Due: March 14,2023
$300-600 (depending on design) per pattern. Our preference is to purchase the pattern outright as an exclusive on the new crochet website. WeCrochet will crochet the samples and will provide yarn support for designers to crochet their own version of the pattern. WeCrochet will also photograph all samples and designers will be able to use these photographs for their own promotions. WeCrochet will provide tech edits and the final pattern layout. WeCrochet reserves the right to change pattern names and requested yarn from the designer to fit our collection.
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.
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 your submission via the correct Google Form below. Please keep your file size to under 5MB (there are several free websites to reduce file sizes if needed) as anything larger will bounce.
Crochet Bags Submission form: https://forms.gle/H5KAEezYtLCnfkjx6
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 WeCrochet/crochet.com website. 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 February 7, 2023; designers will be notified of final decisions by February 9, 2023 at the latest. Finished patterns will be due by March 14, 2023. Any other questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
