From greenery to sandscapes to urban sprawl, coastlines to mountains, there is always something new to find in the landscapes that surround us. For our Winter 2019 Issue we want you to look at the landscape from a different angle: above. Topography and the patterns and shapes we see when we take a bird’s-eye view are our inspiration. We want you to draw on geographical features and textures, whether (hu)man-made or natural, and the abstract aspects of terrain when looked at from height.
We are looking for garments and accessories to keep you warm outdoors. Bear in mind that we are particularly interested in accessories for this issue.
We can’t wait to hear your ideas.
Deadline: Please submit your ideas by the 31st of May. If your design has been selected, you will be notified by early June. Finished patterns, samples, and articles will then be due in mid-August for publication in November.
Compensation/support: Compensation is offered on a scale of difficulty of the pattern/length of article, etc. We provide yarn support. You can also rest assured your pattern will be presented in the best light possible, with professional tech editing, beautiful photography, and brilliant graphic design.
