Knitty Soliciting Patterns and Articles

Deadline:  September 15, 2007

Knitty Online Magazine
Soliciting Patterns and Articles for Winter Issue
Quoted Text:
We are now soliciting patterns for our winter issue which goes live in December 2007.

Knitty's biggest issue is winter -- we pack it with knitwear, accessories, gifts and whimsies. We call the winter issue our "last-minute gifts and garments" issue. We're looking for items to wear at holiday parties, clasic-but-fashionable projects to knit in the dim cold winter days, quick-knit gifts that don't look quick to knit. Always think fashion [is it something you're dying to wear?]. Whimsies -- items that defy description -- are always welcome at Knitty. We are always looking for great men's designs: classic, fashionable, wearable and enjoyable to knit. As a rule, we avoid novelty yarn unless there's a really good reason for it.

Please note: Knitty is religion neutral, so nothing related to any religion will be published.

Submissions must be new -- not previously shown in another mag or on your website, blog, livejournal, Flickr or Ravelry. Once your pattern is published in Knitty, you may include a picture of your design on your website with a link to the Knitty website.

We cannot accept submissions of crocheted items.  Knitted items with a small amount of crochet are most welcome.

Contributors receive an honorarium in the range of $75 - $100.
Deadlines for future issues:

Winter: September 15 [last-minute gifts, accessories and garments]
Spring: January 5 [transitional garments and accessories]
Summer: March 15 [warm-weather garments, layering essentials and accessories]
Fall: June 15 [cool-weather garments and accessories]


Written submissions for the fall issue must be received by September 15, 2007. Submissions must be from 1000 to 2000 words in length. Submit files in MS Word or as text-only documents. If accepted for publication, your work will be edited for clarity and format.
