CROCHET PATTERNS:

The pattern should be your original pattern, with some uniqueness. Preferably something that’s “typical” for you & shows off your style.

I’ll need a written blog post introducing your pattern, the actual written pattern and 5-10 photos showing the finished project and any tricky steps along the way.

Modern, on-trend and approachable crochet designs.

Patterns and posts will publish January 2020- May 2020, so consider the Winter and soon to follow Spring season when brainstorming designs.

APPLY HERE

Requirements:

  • Crochet patterns must be tested by at least 2 testers.
  • Must have a clear keyword
  • 5-10 High-quality photos

If you contribute with a crochet pattern, the rights to your pattern will stay yours. You will be able to offer it as a premium PDF & sell it on your preferred platform (Etsy, Love Crochet, Ravelry, etc.).

While designing, you’re welcome to share sneak peeks and pictures of the design. You’re also encouraged to share the pictures from testers. I will then try my best & follow up & share a few of those pictures as well, make sure you tag me!

How does it work?

Give me as much detail as possible in the application form about your post. If you don’t have an idea yet, we can work on something together. Share your website address & social media profiles.

Don’t have a website? Just an Etsy shop or your social media. Don’t hesitate to send a submission, I might accept your application anyway.

After reviewing your submission I’ll send you an email. If it’s accepted I’ll send you a possible date for your post with a work agreement that you must confirm.

You work on your design & submit it to me 2 weeks before the publish date.

When I publish a guest bloggers blog post I share those blog posts on social media as much as possible and I expect you to do the same. Promoting the post will be the responsibility of both of us. The more you promote, the more successful your post will be and this will increase the chance of getting featured as a guest designer again in the future.

On the day the guest design goes live, I encourage you to post a blog post about it on your own website linking to the guest design, where you talk about your design. Don’t copy and paste from the blog post you submitted to me as it makes it seems like plagiarism for Google.
