Call for Submissions

A theme like 'Balance' could be interpreted in a myriad of ways, but our focus is on the way shapes and colours can interact in interesting ways while still maintaining balance. Balance isn't necessarily about symmetry, but about how different elements offset each other harmoniously and in beautiful proportions.
A broad swath of pattern might balance out a blaze of bright colour. Or perhaps a symmetrical form comes alive with alternating of colours. Get creative with patterns, shapes, colours and lines... but be mindful of the balance.
For Issue 6, we're looking for designs like light tops, jumpers and cardigans and warm(ish) weather appropriate accessories.
Moorit places equal emphasis on garments as accessories, and while our range is geared toward women, gender neutral or menswear designs are welcome too. Home decor, blankets and amigurumi are accepted, but we are not specifically seeking these.
Additionally, we are looking for proposals a non-crochet craft project and for 1-2 written essays or articles about crochet, crafts, fibre, or other lifestyle subjects that would interest our readers.
Submission deadline: Friday 21 April at midnight GMT
Decisions: approx 28 April
Patterns/samples/articles due: 4 August
Publication: 26 March 2024
You will be offered compensation in the form of a flat fee, commensurate with the level of difficulty/complexity of your pattern or length of your article. For patterns, Moorit will provide yarn support; your pattern will be tech edited; and your design will be professionally photographed for inclusion in the magazine.
After a six month period of exclusivity, we may still print and sell your pattern within the issue of Moorit for which you are commissioned. And we will never print or sell your pattern individually or reprint your pattern in a different issue.
Pattern proposals should include at minimum: A brief description of the design, construction and inspiration, a sketch, an image of your swatch, and suggested yarn.
Please use our submission form to submit your proposal. If you have more than one design idea, submit a new form for each proposal. If you have access needs which are not met by the form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
