Calling for scarves!

Hey. Feeling very on top of things these days.

Well, on top of some things.

And one of these is our Annual Call for Scarves (ACFS). Remember Scarves, etc? You gave us such great pieces last year that we’d like to do a repeat. Last year we didn’t get around to asking you for designs until November. THIS year, however, we’re still in October. So good.

So what are we looking for? The perfect scarf–even if it’s a cowl, a shawl, or the classic skinny rectangle. We’d like to see your idea, be it original and wacky, classic and comforting, sophisticated, cute, textured, colored, cowled, wrapped, shawled, short- or long-ended. What we want is the scarf you want to live in. And one that’s relatively easy to knit (we think scarves should be comfort knitting).

So, please–send us your design(s). We’d love to have your submission by Nov 8. If we accept your idea, we’ll get yarn to you pronto and hope to see your finished piece by the beginning of January. You’ll get to keep your scarf when all is photographed and done, and we’ll pay you, too, for your design.

Please submit your ideas via email to pam@quinceandco.com. Scan your swatch and sketch (rough drawing is fine) and put SCARF in the subject line. No need to use a Quince yarn in your swatch, we’ll get the idea and, if we accept your idea, we’ll send you a Quince equivalent. Questions? Email us at info@quinceandco.com.

Okay–come on! Send in those ideas!

    Exciting! I’m looking through my design idea sketchbook right now! I bet there’s something in here that will fit.

    Yay!!! I’m so excited! I wanted to do this last year, but I’ll be sure to make it a priority!

    I’m so excited for this! It’ll be my second year submitting. I do have a question, though:
    I have some Quince in Lark, but I’m proposing something in Osprey. Should I swatch in Lark to show the stitch definition, etc, or should I swatch on Malabrigo Twist, which is closer in weight but not texture?
    Thank you!

    I see a couple of crochet designs in your patterns section, are you accepting crochet for this call?

    When will we find out the winners?

    Hi Alicia, Sorry to take so long to get back to you. It’s fine to swatch in Lark and indicate that the proposed pattern is meant to be worked in Osprey. But if you have a yarn that’s closer to Osprey gauge, that would be a mite better. Thaks for your interest!

    Man, I wish I had seen this sooner! I just finished a scarf whose pattern I made up!
