There are four different ways you can work with us as a designer:
Each year, WeCrochet publishes between 14–18 exclusive 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 Crochet.com gets exclusive rights to the design for a period of time (1-2 years, depending on the size of the collection). Crochet.com 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 Partnership program, as well as anywhere else they may choose.
Join our Independent Designer Partnership program! If you have a pattern written for Crochet.com yarn, submit the pattern for sale on our site. Designers maintain all exclusive rights to the pattern and can still sell the pattern on other sites such as personal websites, Ravelry, etc. Designers choose the sale price for these patterns and will receive 85% of the sale.
We work with a hand-selected group of designers to create free pattern downloads to Crochet.com customers. Designers are paid a flat fee for each design, and Crochet.com retains exclusive rights to the pattern.
Crochet.com 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.
