crochet calls for submission Crochet Calls for Submission

This post is the first in an exciting new weekly series here at Crochet Concupiscence. In addition to the daily crochet jobs listings that I’ve begun, I’ll be doing a weekly roundup of current calls for submission. I’ve turned to the sites I regularly check on the web to find the latest calls for crochet patterns, crochet articles and fiber arts entries. Let’s kick it off!

Crochet Pattern Calls for Submission

Knit / Crochet Basketball Net Patterns

This is a cool, unconventional call for crochet / knit patterns. It’s for a project that “aims to create functional, hand-crafted basketball nets for neglected public hoops” and to encourage the re-purposing of abandoned urban spaces. The 15 – 20 chosen patterns will be compiled into a guide distributed nationwide and used as a resource for people participating in the project.

Compensation: None listed

Deadlines: Must RSVP an expression of interest by 1/31/12, net pattern due 3/31/12

Fall 2012 Twist Collective

Twist Collective primarily seeks knitting patterns but will occasionally accept a really great crochet pattern so it may be worth a shot to consider submitting. They’ve created a great mood board showing what they’re looking for this time around.

Compensation: Patterns are sold for $5-$9; designer gets a percentage of pattern sales and retains many rights.

Deadline: 1/19/2012

Crochet Traditions 2012

Interweave’s historical PieceWork publication puts out an annual issue focusing on crochet traditions. They are seeking “well-researched feature stories accompanied by fine thread crochet projects that complement the story or projects accompanied by introductions that provide the historical information on the pattern, the technique, or both. In either case, the historical context is paramount.”

Deadlines: 1/28/12 (proposals), 3/1/12 (finished submissions for accepted proposals)
