Issue 40: Spring 2022
Who else has imagined themselves away from their current surroundings over the last year? In spring 2022, we’re hoping to create a dreamland of neon pastels, dramatic shapes, and flowy fabrics. Basically, if it’s fluffy, puffy, frilly, or fringed, we are here for it! We would love to see over-the-top texture, big stripes, and unusual stitch techniques and embellishments. We’re looking for knit and crochetwear that makes you smile when both making and wearing!
We are also interested in feature story ideas, tutorials, and recipes, as well as illustrations that work with this concept, so make sure to pass this call along to anyone you know who might be interested in developing a dreamy story with us!
Please submit your ideas by Sunday 6th June, midnight BST, via the form below. If your design has been selected, you will be notified by the end of June 2021. Finished patterns, samples, and articles will then be due early in October 2021 for publication early in 2022.

Compensation is offered on a scale of difficulty of the pattern/length of article, etc. We provide yarn support. You can also rest assured your pattern will be presented in the best light possible, with professional tech editing, beautiful photography, and brilliant graphic design.
