Knit now magazine is calling all knitwear designer for pattern submission for Spring 2017.
Below is the press statement and link to the submission guidelines.
This call is for the Spring 2017 issues (on sale in March, April & May; 3 issues). I’m looking for a wide range of stylish and wearable knits for this transitional season. I am open to any ideas submitted, including a broad selection of patterns for women, men, children, babies and the home in each issue.
Knit Now caters to a range of ages and ability levels so beginner, intermediate and advanced patterns are equally welcome – the beauty of the design is what is most important. Each issue includes the following, so keep this in mind when considering ideas. • 60% accessories. Quick knits and patterns using less than 400g of yarn, such as hats, scarves, mitts, bags etc.
Each issue includes at least 1 shawls & 1 pair of socks. • 20% garments. Generally skewed toward the simpler end of things, we tend to print patterns which are primarily wearable and stylish.
All garments must be sized up to at least a 3X. • 10% babies’ and children’s knits (including toys). We have a preference for contemporary, gender-neutral designs. • 10% Homewares and other stuff – Beautiful, useful, sometimes unexpected things. Toys and tea cosies are welcome but we draw the line at egg cosies!

Knit Now is a fresh and stylish knitting magazine which launched in the UK in October 2011. It is a fresh monthly national newsstand title, available from large supermarket retailers as well as smaller independent newsagents and digitally through our apps.
Our main focus is on accessories and quick little knits (though we do publish a few garments per issue), so think small in size, but not always small in ambition.
