Design With Us!
You love yarn, we love yarn—we’re a match made in heaven! We are always looking for talented designers to create patterns for sale on WeCrochet.
There are four different ways you can work with us as a designer:
Pattern Collection Designers
Each year, WeCrochet publishes between 14–18 excusive pattern collections. Some of our collections are themed around a type of crocheted item—for example sweaters, shawls, or blankets. Other collections feature a crochet technique, such as cables, lace, or colorwork.
Designers for our collections are paid a flat fee for each pattern, and WeCrochet gets exclusive rights to the design for a period of time (1–2 years, depending on the size of the collection). WeCrochet takes care of all sample crocheting, tech editing, photography, and pattern layout. After the exclusivity term is over, rights are transferred to the designer, who may continue to sell the pattern as part of our Independent Designer Partnership program, as well as anywhere else you may choose.
Independent Pattern Designers
Our team is currently working to bring you an exciting NEW Independent Designer Partnership program! Please be patient as we use our time and resources to bring you our completely redesigned and reinvented program — one that we believe will be the best in the business!
WeCrochet Design Team
We work with a hand-selected group of designers to create free pattern downloads to WeCrochet customers. Designers are paid a flat fee for each design, and WeCrochet retains exclusive rights to the pattern.
Outside Publication Designers
WeCrochet is happy to provide yarn to designers for use in print and online magazines. We also provide yarn for projects featured in books from both indie and national publications.
