WeCrochet is looking for a variety of crochet 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 crochet designs only.
Get your hooks ready, we are looking for new crochet patterns in 4 themes for Summer 2022— Motif Mania, Quick Road Trip Makes, Fingering Weight Shawls, and Amigurumi. Please see each theme’s mood board for exact yarn and project details.
Motif Mania: Think modern motifs for module projects like blankets, bags, sweaters, shawls, coverups, pillows and more. Please find additional mood boards on Pinterest: pin.it/3Igo8A5
Quick Road Trip Makes: Think accessories like hats, bags, pillows, baskets and more. Please find additional mood boards on Pinterest: pin.it/gNzLC9R
Fingering Weight Shawls: Think different shapes and stitch patterns that will ease crocheters into working with fingering weight yarn. Please find additional mood boards on Pinterest: pin.it/5wpZwTX
Summer Amigurumi: Think sea animals, picnic food, seasonal decorations, flowers and more. Please find additional mood boards on Pinterest: pin.it/1eFlGsK
$200-600 (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.
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 this Google Form (https://forms.gle/A75akMG3xY1n3zfS7). Please keep your file size to under 5MB (there are several free websites to reduce file sizes if needed) as anything larger will bounce.
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.
Submissions will be accepted through August 3, 2021; designers will be notified of final decisions by August 10, 2021 at the latest. Finished patterns will be due by September 7, 2021. Any other questions may be directed to email@example.com.
