With the summer melting away, here's to cold and crisp winter nights. To gazing out the window wondering if that pinprick of light is a star or a planet. To that magical moment when a shooting star makes itself known for just a brief second before fading away. To bathing in moonlight and dancing on stardust.
For Issue 3, we're looking for cosmic inspiration. We'd love to see pieces that embrace the bigness and boldness of outer space with a touch of glamour.
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 for one non-crochet project and for 1-2 written essays or articles which may or may not follow the "Cosmic" issue theme.
Submission deadline: Friday 19th November at midnight GMT
Decisions: 26 Nov
Patterns/samples/articles due: 27 March

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 and construction, a sketch, an image of your swatch, suggested yarn weight and tension.
