Issue 45: Summer 2023 

One of the greatest joys of summer is the profusion of fruit in all its colourful, juicy, textured glory. The variations are endless and so is the inspiration for vibrant, fun knitwear. We’d love you to look to the outsides and insides of fruit for influences on your design submissions - seeds, peels, bunches, stacks, slices - it’s all fair game! We are looking for truly warm weather-worthy knit and crochet pieces that also make the most of plant-based fibres where appropriate. Though not totally off the table, literal representations of fruit are not necessarily what we’re looking for - think of fruit as the jumping off point for innovations in stitched texture, use of colour, and shaping. We can’t wait to see your ideas!

View our summer 2023 mood board.


Please submit your ideas by 10th July, midnight BST, via the form below. If your design has been selected, you will be notified later in July. Finished patterns, samples, and articles will then be due November 2022 for publication in 2023. 

Ready to submit?

We will need information about your design, suggested yarns, design inspiration and how it will work with our issue theme. Click 'Submit your design' below to be taken to our submissions form.
