Sock Club 2023 – Call for designs!

We are looking for sock designs that are attractive yet practical and, of course, are engaging to knit!

For the amirisu Sock Club, we release an exclusive, limited-time sock kit every month from spring to late fall. Each kit includes a new original pattern and yarn, and knitters can join in whenever they like by purchasing a kit during the month it is available.

Our 2022 Sock Club has come to an end, and we are excited to get ready for next year! Even though socks are small, there are so many techniques to try that the possibilities are endless.


Have a great idea for a sock design? Keep reading for details on how to submit your idea for the 2023 amirisu Sock Club!

 

(1) In general, the design should use amirisu Trek. However, if your design requires a different yarn, please consult with us.

(2) We plan to offer the Sock Club patterns in English and Japanese.

(3) Multiple sizes are not required. If the sample is sized for an average adult woman, one size is fine.

(4) For chosen designs, amirisu will select the sample color and send the yarn to the designer for the sample. We ask that the designer cover the shipping fee for sending the sample back to amirisu.

(5) amirisu will provide technical editing, create charts, and prepare the pattern layout and translation (from English to Japanese or Japanese to English).

(6) Send a simple design proposal ( a sketch, swatches, and design descriptions)  to contribute@amirisu.com to submit your design. Please include your Instagram and Ravelry accounts in your message. The deadline is December 27th, 2022.

(7) One design will be released each month from April 2023 to November 2023. We will decide the release schedule for each design after finalizing the participating designers and will determine the deadline for each design at that time. If you have a preference regarding the deadline for the submission of your pattern and finished sample, please let us know.

If you have any questions, please contact us at: contribute@amirisu.com
