Meta Post Modern Knitting

Publishing Opportunity is a celebration of fashion-forward and avant-garde knitting. We want to bring you knitting patterns, trend analysis, and news that represents the more artistic, unconventional and forward-thinking realm of knitting.

We're Looking For
Knitting and crochet patterns are both fine with us, as long as they are fashion-forward or unconventional in some way.

If you are submitting a pattern for something wearable, we want patterns that are fashion-forward.

We want original designs that are “inspired by” the current or future fashion trends. We want fashion-forward, and we want to see where your inspiration came from, but we also want to see your creativity.

We aren't just about fashion! We welcome knitting and crochet patterns for wearable and non-wearable items that are unconventional, artistic, or avant-garde in some way.

We pay between $25 and $50 per pattern, according to the complexity of the pattern. Payments are made via paypal only.

Use the following templates to submit patterns:

The pattern, using our handy Pattern Template in either Word format or Plain Text.

We Want More Than Just Patterns
We would love to receive trend reports and links to fun things you find online. Trend reports don't have to be very long, and we will consider a wide range of topics.

If you find interesting things online and want to share it with our readers, please send the link, and a very brief description of what it is to Robin at We might include your link in our blog or on our MetaStylist page.

Yes, you can submit a design idea for review!
You don't have to commit to working up a sample and writing a pattern just yet. We will gladly consider idea submissions.
