Design Submissions NOW OPEN | Knitting/Crochet patterns | Morris Yarns – Morris & Sons Australia

Conscious Style


Conscious Style
Making sure all we make brings joy, meaning and purpose to everyday.

Slow fashion, a philosophy of creating pieces with integrity and designed to last, is at the core of this concept. Classic design is key, but we are all unique, and small accents and twists bring a new take on established styles.

We are looking for garments, accessories and homewares patterns that embrace this philosophy. They can be knitted or crocheted, but must be designed specifically for Morris & Sons Empire, Estate, Norway or Quartet (any ply).

We encourage designs that represent all body shapes. Please note, grading is only necessary if the pattern is successful, not for the submission. If your submission is successful, garments must be graded to be size inclusive with adult garments being graded from 76-150cm (30-60). Children and baby garment grading will depend on the style of the garment.

New and established designers are welcome to submit designs. We welcome designers from all backgrounds and especially encourage members of the BIPOC community, the LBGQTIA+ community
and other marginalised groups to submit patterns. All patterns are selected based on merit and how they fit within the broader collection. If a piece is not successful for this submission but will fit a future collection, we will discuss this with you.

If successful, we require a full sample to be submitted with the finished pattern for photography and marketing. These samples will then be returned to you 6 months after the pattern release. Yarn support is provided for these samples.

Please note we will tech-edit all designs internally to maintain  consistency across all our designs

We at Morris & Sons will hold the exclusive rights for your pattern for 6 months after publication. You retain the copyright to the original work. The pattern itself may be published, distributed and sold both in print and digital versions as well as in kits. After the exclusivity period, we can still continue to sell the print and digital version of the pattern and kits. Six months after the publication date, you’re more than welcome to self-publish the individual version of your pattern in either your own branding and layout or as the PDF version of the pattern that we’ll provide to you. We pay a one time flat-rate fee for all designs. Rates vary based on the complexity of the project. All payments are made shortly after all samples and patterns have been received and reviewed.


Submissions must be received by Sunday 3rd April 2022 via email to
Finished patterns & samples will then be due Early May 2022 for publication in June.
