Brief Description

We are looking for new crochet patterns in 4 themes for Winter 2021— Plaid, Mosaic Crochet, Quick Gifts, and Cozy Luxury. Please see each theme’s mood board for exact yarn and project details.

A moodboard featuring quick gift ideas like an oversize slouch hat, a wreath, ornaments, sachets, and wine bottle cozy.

$200-800 (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.

Submission Requirements

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

One-page submission, complete with:

•Detailed pattern information

•Suggested yarn

•A 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 (not just a chart or drawing).

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.

Submissions will be accepted through January 27, 2021; designers will be notified of final decision by Feb. 10, 2021 at the latest. Finished patterns will be due by March 9, 2021.

      Thanks so much for your comment! We try our best to get a variety of patterns, it always depends on what is submitted. We haven’t had any male project submitted recently, maybe we will this time!
