Crochet Uncut

Deadline: Ongoing
Submission deadlines vary

Crochet Uncut

Darlisa Riggs, Editor/Publisher
Publishing Opportunity

Crochet Uncut is a free online magazine devoted to the art of crochet.

While this magazine is geared towards crochet, it is not anti-knitting! If we find techniques that support knitting and crochet, then we'll cover them.

Ways to Contribute
  • Submit articles

  • Submit patterns

  • Volunteer to edit submitted articles and patterns

Please note that we cannot currently provide any compensation for any submissions, however, once we are established and get enough advertisers, we do plan on providing small payments for submissions and will pay this out retroactively once it is set up.

What we are looking for
Each issue will have a basic theme and articles and patterns submitted for that issue should be based on that theme. Tips and techniques do not have to follow the theme for the issue. This doesn't mean that we won't accept content that doesn't go with the theme, but we'd prefer it.

Home decor items are welcome for any issue: doilies, curtains, bed covers, kitchen items, etc.

We encourage innovation, designs for and by men, and for plus-size women/men.

Submissions must be new, not published or shown anywhere else prior to submission to Crochet Uncut. This does not include use for private testing purposes prior to submission.

Ravelry Inclusion
Once an issue has been released, we will add each pattern to the Ravelry Pattern Database and add the link to each pattern page.

Authors retain all copyright to their articles and/or patterns but give Crochet Uncut the right to publish the article and/or pattern on their site for the lifetime of the issue it is published in. Crochet Uncut issues will be available indefinitely. Once the next issue is released, the article or pattern can be released by the author in any format they deem fit, while it continues to be available in the Crochet Uncut archives.
