Knit Now Easter: We’re commissioning!
Call for Submissions! Easter 2022
Calling all designers! We’ve just put up a call for submissions on our website here.
Would you like to see your design in Knit Now magazine? We are commissioning for our Easter issue – but be quick, as the deadline for submissions is Friday 18th June!
We’re looking for adorable toys, small home makes, baby knits and bright accessories that are quick, fun and interesting to make! Full details and requirements can be found here.
Deadline: Friday 18th June
Please send your submissions to me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org – can’t wait to see what you come up with!
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:
The deadline for submissions will be 9am UK time on Friday 18th June. I am aiming to get all commissions sent out within a couple of days that date. Deadlines for final patterns and samples are likely to be Monday 26th July August 2021 – it’s a tight timeline, but bear in mind the makes will be small.
Please send your submissions to me by email: email@example.com
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
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.
