$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 (https://forms.gle/JHwyKD5fbjriTptY9). 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. 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. Any other questions may be directed to submissions@wecrochet.com.

11 Winter Crochet Patterns: Patterns of Wintertide
Winter crochet patterns: a model wears a 3-piece crocheted set of earwarmers, cowl, and mittens.

WeCrochet Magazine Issue 5 is out, which means: NEW winter crochet patterns! Today we’re talking about the patterns of the Wintertide Collection, our winter crochet patterns collection that features 11 warm & cozy garment and home decor projects to carry you through the coldest time of the year.

You can find all of these patterns in WeCrochet Magazine Issue 5. Each of these holiday crochet patterns is also available as an individual free download in the Patterns section of crochet.com. See the whole collection here: Wintertide Collection.

Now, let’s check out these fun crochet patterns!

Winter Crochet Accessory Patterns

Hands hold a crocheted cowl with a navy background and red geometric pattern. A fun and challenging winter crochet pattern.

Since we already sneak peeked this set above, let’s jump in by talking about the Crossing Earwarmer, Cowl, and Mitts.

A contemporary snowflake motif is used in a variety of ways across this sporty, stylish set of earwarmer, cowl, and mitts. The sport-weight colorwork is worked using tapestry crochet and sewn to the cozy faux-fur lining. Buttons fasten the earwarmer snugly around the head. Quick to whip up, this cozy accessory set will become your neck, hands, and ears’ favorite thing this winter, whether you’re hitting a ski slope or out for some holiday shopping!

We also have this pretty crochet cowl pattern:

Wrap up with this snug woolly cowl designed to add a spot of color to the gray days of winter. The Yuletide Cowl is worked flat in rows, changing yarn color on each row, and seamed along the short sides once the desired size is reached. You can wear it two different ways: doubled up twice for a short and cozy cowl (left), or fully extended (right).

Winter Crochet Garment Patterns

But what the Wintertide Collection is really about is crocheted garment patterns! Our whole team was stunned when we saw this one: the Hygge Poncho.

A model wears an oversized gray tweed crocheted poncho, the perfect winter crochet pattern.

Relax in this contemporary and sophisticated sleeved poncho. The combination of simple stitches, front pockets, and unique overlapping border create an on-trend poncho that will soon become the star of your winter wardrobe.

The Hygge Poncho really looks like the perfect thing to wear all winter long! And it has pockets!

We have several sweaters in this collection too:

There’s a sweater for everyone in this collection! For cable-lovers, we have the Snow Crystal Sweater. If you like more simple and classic designs, you’ll love the Polaris Pullover. The Hearthstone Top is a perfect everyday wardrobe accent. And if you want a Nordic-style sweater this winter, the Perseid Sweater fits the bill.

Two models each were a different color of a crocheted sweater: The Pulmu Pullover

The Pulmu Pullover has taken off as an early hit from the Wintertide Collection. Use colorwork to create a stunning yoke on this crocheted sweater.

We’re crocheters too! Brand Director Sara has already made at least two versions of the Pulmu Pullover, and we heard a rumor she has another one on the hook!

Winter Home Décor Crochet Patterns

But wait, there’s more! This collection also has some really pretty home décor crochet patterns for winter.

A crocheted blanket with a Nordic snowflake motif

If you admire the beauty of traditional Fair Isle knitting but prefer to crochet, then the Nordic Colorwork Blanket is for you. Crochet your own heirloom-quality blanket using tapestry crochet!

Another special feature of this project? The ends of each row are left long on the ends to serve as fringe, so virtually no ends weaving necessary for this breathtaking crochet blanket.

Two crocheted pillows

Finally, the Pillows of Wintertide! The gray one is the Winter Cabin Pillow: a textured chevron pattern creates a chic geometric look and minimalist feel. The green and white pillow is the Hideaway Pillow. Inspired by Southwestern blanket coats, this unique pillow is packed with texture and interest and can be made in so many color combinations.
