I had my first Guest Designer Call on the blog in Fall 2019 and I have had such an amazing time getting to know other designers and working with them that I’m doing it again! I’m now accepting guest designers for Winter/Spring 2021!
This guest designer call is open to both new and seasoned crochet designers and bloggers! Follower numbers do not matter to me! This is an opportunity for you to showcase your creativity on a different platform in front of a wonderful audience of fellow crocheters!
What I’m looking for…
I’m looking for designers who are creative, have good pattern writing skills, and can produce beautiful, eye catching photos to showcase their designs. You will need to create a written blog post describing your design, pattern instructions, and at least 5 photos.
I’m looking for designs that are on trend and follow the general brand of Two Brothers Blankets. That is garments and accessories for a handmade wardrobe. Think sweaters, hats, scarves, shawls, and bags! I’m also open to home decor patterns like dish cloths, blankets, or pillows!
If you’d like to see the general look of my designs please check out my list of Free Crochet Patterns.
Beginner to Intermediate level patterns will work best for my audience.
Patterns must be new and not published anywhere else. If you have an idea that does not fall into the general niche, but think it would be a hit with my audience feel free to suggest the idea on the form.
Patterns will publish January-May 2021 and will need to work well for the winter or spring season.
Guest Designer Call Benefits
If accepted, your post will link back to your site, and shops. Your post will be sent to my email list, as well as shared on all of my social media venues.You will be tagged back to your social media venues so that my audience can find you easily and follow you.
You will have the right to sell the crochet pattern as an ad-free, printable pdf immediately in your shop(s).You can also put your pattern on your own site after 30 days from the publish date.
A word from previous guest designers:
