Read the press release.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Quick chunky knits
Our latest call for submissions for Knit Now magazine is now available on our website here.
I’ve got a quick little challenge for you today! I would love to see your ideas for simple, modern chunky knits.
If you’ve not picked up a copy of Knit Now recently, you can get a feel for our style from Instagram.
Calling all designers! We want to see your ideas for quick, chunky knits.
We’re partnering with our friends at Deramores to create a mini collection of patterns for their Studio Chunky yarn. For this collection we’re particularly looking for speedy, simple makes. A little bit of texture or colourwork is fine but keep it on the easy end – we want these patterns to be beginner-friendly. We want to see modern makes for women, babies and the home.
Check out our mood board for inspiration.
Your submission should include a sketch and accompanying paragraph describing the item, a photograph or scan of your swatch and ideas for yarn choices. The submission should be presented in a PDF document, with your name and email address on every page. All information should be included in the submission document, including pictures. Please also tell us where we can find other examples of your work – a link to your Ravelry designer profile is ideal. You will be commissioned to write a full pattern (including any alternative sizes) and knit a sample. We will take care of photography.
IMPORTANT: Please create a separate PDF for each idea and name the file in the following format: YourName _PatternName_KNchunky.pdf
The deadline for submissions will be 9am UK time on Monday 19th August. I am aiming to get all commissions sent out straight away. Deadlines for final patterns and samples will be 17th September. This is a tighter deadline than I usually work to but please remember that these will all be quick, chunky knits.
Please send your submissions to me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are sending multiple submissions, please attach them all to one email if possible rather than sending multiple emails.
We have recently reviewed our fee structure and can give the following examples of fees;
Hat in 3 sizes: £70-£100
Baby garment in 5 sizes: £120-£150
Adult garment in 9 sizes: £300-£400
The exact fee will depend on a number of factors including the complexity of the design.
4 months after publication, rights will revert to you and you will then be able to use the final tech-edited version of the pattern (including charts/schematics) as you wish. We arrange yarn support for all designers. Your sample remains your property, but we will hold onto it for a while in case we get pattern queries, or for display at shows. We will return your sample to you at the same time as your publication rights.
