Suggest a Design

Although I've retired my crowd-funded PlanetJune Commissions system, I'm always happy to hear your ideas for new crochet patterns to design! Is your favourite animal (or plant, or something else) missing from the PlanetJune catalogue? Suggest it here and I may be inspired to make it!

Please fill out the form for each animal (or other design) you'd like to suggest.

(Your email address is optional - I'll only use it if you'd like me to notify you if/when your requested pattern is available for purchase, or to discuss your suggestion with you.)

How PlanetJune Commissions Worked

PlanetJune Commissions old design options - graph and photos

My pattern commissions system was designed to let people pledge however much they wish towards a new PlanetJune design, from $6 to $300.

This helped me to get a feel for which designs would be popular and be paid a fair price for my work in creating the design without charging any one person excessively, as up to 50 people could crowd-fund a single design.

The Commissions Cycle

PlanetJune Commissions ran via a 5-step cycle:

  1. I announce the date I'll be able to begin work on the next commissioned design (join the Commissions News mailing list for notifications).
  2. The bidding war begins - will your favourite be commissioned? Make your pledges and make it happen!
  3. The first fully-funded design is locked in. Pledge monies are collected and design begins.
  4. You can raise/lower/delete any of your other pledges, or make new pledges, whenever you wish.
  5. Once the new pattern is complete, it's automatically available to download from all pledgers' PlanetJune accounts.

Commissions Status Updates

Commission status: The Goat pattern is completed and ready for pledgers to download! (Sign up to be notified when the pattern is available for general purchase.)

And that marks the end of PlanetJune Commissions (at least in its current form...) Thank you so much to everyone who's made a pledge over the past 5+ years - you've helped me to come up with some great designs :) (Latest update )

Commissions FAQ
