We’ve had the pleasure of working on collaborations with several vendors and incredible indie yarn dyers to create designs that help highlight their yarn’s best features. The fusion of talents between a dyer and designer is a truly magical thing. We would love to discuss collaborations with you! Please read through the various partnerships we offer and fill out the form below with your collaboration request; you’ll receive a response in 1-2 business days with my design availability.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at melinda@rhyflowerknits.com

Pattern Support Collaboration

What I offer;

  • A high-quality pattern in English and a low-visibility format, fully tech-edited and test knit, sold through a variety of platforms (i.e., my website, Ravelry, LoveCrafts, Payhip, etc.)
  • rhyFlower Knits retains the sample. If the dyer needs the piece sent to them, extra yarn to complete a second sample will be provided to the designer by the dyer.
  • Photographs of the design are provided to the dyer to use in promoting both their yarn and the pattern.
  • Promotion of your yarn and work on rhyFlower Knits social media platforms, website, and newsletter.
  • The designer retains all pattern rights.

You offer;

  • Yarn support to knit the sample.
  • Promote the design and my work on my social media platforms, website, and newsletter.
  • OPTIONAL: Provide a discount to the test knitters participating in the test – this helps with your sales along with more projects get to knit in your lovely yarn.

Commissioned Collaboration

  • We work together to create a design.
  • Your company supplies the yarn for the sample.
  • The company is responsible for tech editing and test knitting.
  • The design is exclusive to your shop/company/Ravelry store/club members for six months (or one year), after which pattern rights and ownership revert to rhyFlower Knits.

Pattern Review Collaboration

If you have a podcast or blog with a substantial following and would like to review a rhyFlower pattern, I would be happy to provide you with a copy of the design you’d like to discuss in your blog or podcast. Let me know which pattern you’d like to review! Patterns can be found here on the rhyFlower Website or Ravelry.

Wholesale and LYS Partnership Collaboration
