Commission a new PlanetJune Crochet Pattern

Is your favourite animal or dog breed missing from my amigurumi crochet pattern range? Here's your chance to change that! My pattern commissions model lets you pledge however much you wish towards a new PlanetJune design. This helps me to get a feel for which designs will be popular and be paid a fair price for my work in creating the design without charging any one person excessively.

If you'd like to commission a pattern for something you don't see here, contact me directly and we can discuss requirements and pricing, or submit the form at the bottom of this page if you'd like me to add your suggestion to the options here.

If you're looking to commission a finished item, please see the Sellers' List and directly commision one of my customers who sell items made from my patterns.

Completed Commissions

To give you an idea of what to expect, here are some examples of crochet patterns I've designed through this commissions process:

Current pledges

The price for a new commissioned design from this list is $150 (minus the pre-pledge amount, if applicable). With this new model, the cost may be split between up to 25 people. You can pledge the amount you're willing to pay for the pattern commission (from $6 to $150) and, when all $150 is pledged, I'll collect the payments and create the design for you. You'll receive a copy of the finished crochet pattern when it is complete. (Expected time to completion will be 1-3 months, depending on when inspiration strikes Ė no PlanetJune pattern is ever released until Iím satisfied itís as good as I can possibly make it; if there's a choice between speed and quality, I'll take the extra time to make sure your design is perfect!)

Commission status: The Commissions process is being rebooted - I've removed the hard 6-8 week deadline and am allowing people to cancel pledges over the next few days. The design queue is currently: Meerkat, Camel, Armadillo, Macaque (monkey), Bernese Mountain Dog, and then Miniature Schnauzer, but this may change if pledges are cancelled and nobody makes make-up pledges to maintain the design's place in the queue. I'll resume commissions on Feb 1st with whichever design is at the head of the waiting list at that time! For more details of the changes and this Commissions reboot process, please see my blog post.

Animal Specifics
To keep this page easy to use, Iíve just put the main animal name in the list. However, if there are several varieties of that animal and you want to know what I have in mind, just click its name on the pledge chart above; itíll open the Wikipedia page to the variety of the animal Iím planning to make, should it be commissioned :)
What's a pre-pledge?
While most of the animals above have general appeal, the designs that are similar to others I've already made (e.g. a new dog breed) are mostly of interest to people who have an interest in that specific breed. The pre-pledge acts as a discounted commission price on these designs, so, for example, a $150 commission with a pre-pledge of $78 needs only another $72 to become fully pledged.

The fine print

  • By making a pledge here, you agree to pay the amount you have pledged, by PayPal, when all $150 for the design has been pledged.
  • For security, your pledge will not be accepted until you click the link in the confirmation email.
  • You will not be charged anything until the entire $150 has been pledged for that animal.
  • When the design has been fully pledged, I'll send out PayPal invoices to all the pledgers for that design, each for the amount of their pledge. When all the pledged payments have been received, I'll begin designing the animal.
  • Every pledger for a specific animal/breed will receive a PDF copy of the crochet pattern for that animal/breed once it has been completed.
  • Important: Where more than one design has reached 100% pledges concurrently, the pledges for the design that reached 100% first will be collected first, the pledges for the second design will be collected once the first design is complete, etc.
