This is a place to commission a knitter to make a one-of-a-kind item just for you!

PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING - Please do not post a request if you are unwilling/unable to offer at least minimum wage for labour. For an average adult sweater this will be 40 hours minimum, plus materials and shipping. Expect handmade garments to be significantly more expensive than off the rack.

Request something to be knit for you!

PLEASE NOTE - Hand knitting is a time consuming, skilled craft, and knitters expect to be fairly compensated for their time. The average sweater can take 40 hours or more to complete, so don't expect someone to do that for $20.

No selling, please - if you request monetary reimbursement, please sort that out via personal messages.

If someone agrees to fulfill your request, please edit the original post to indicate that the job is taken.

Estimate for a sweater

I’ve been wanting a knitted sweater and I came across the perfect pattern. About how much would it cost to commission a size M sweater with this type of yarn? I was thinking about $150. It also wouldn’t have to be made in a rush or anything.

Looking for an estimate for a sweater

Been dreaming about the wit knits "I'm a luxury few can afford" sweater in slightly different colors(potentially a dark gold instead of pink, and with a darker grey. Though only as dark as someone would be willing to go. I cannot knit but I understand how hard dark yarn is to work with as I can crochet.)

I do not have a certain time limit, I can take more accurate measurements for what I would want later but I usually wear a men's size XL in shirts.

I am aware it will be hundreds, just would like an estimate so I can aim for some kind of a goal to save up. And If it matters I am located in the United States, for a general shipping estimate as well. Also if possible an estimate for how long it might take, though obviously not super important to me. I know it will take time and I've been thinking about it for years already lmao

Thank you for your time.

Knit Figure Request

I wish we could add photos, but I'd like a small puppet/figure to be knit about twice the size of an adult human hand, something you can hold with both hands. I have pictures of the exact thing i'm looking for so please dm if you are curious. It's a little male figure in mostly black clothes and a cute little black and red balaclava.

Is there a sister subreddit for finished work?

Hi I'm new here! I'm just wondering if there's a place / flair / etc where you would post a finished garment from the requests on this sub, as a knitter or a customer? Thanks in advance!

Vague Edwardian pattern need help finishing a sweater.

Hi everyone! In the beginning of the Great War Centennial, I attempted to start a sweater based on a period knitting pattern. Although it worked out okay at the start, I then befell a couple of injuries that caused me to put it away until recently. However it always hung in the back of my mind that it wasn't finished and that got me kind of upset.

Well it turns out it is waaaayyyyy worse than I remembered, my torso is not this short... I don't know what sort of gnome I was knitting this for....

So I need help finishing it off. It is a garment that is knit in one piece and I'm not actually sure how much needs to be undone. In the time being I have undone the sleeves since clearly the torso needs to be extended. I have a copy of my math and here is the blog of the person who knit this for a television show. and here is the original, rather vague and up for interpretation pattern. Look for Pensacola.

I really hope somebody is up for the challenge so I can clear the air... Thank you very much!!

Commission for Leap Year Sweater

Hello! I have a sweater request inspired by the sweater worn by “Declan” in the movie “Leap Year” (I have photos). I love the cool brown and charcoal navy alternating stitch, with the yellow “v” marks poking through on the brown. I also love the notch collar with the two small brown buttons and charcoal navy trim around the collar. Everything about this sweater is perfect and I can’t find one like it anywhere. Are any skilled knitters confident they could make me something similar? Name your price!

can anybody help me figure out how to build a custom sweater template?

Im on illustrator figuring out how to facet the multiple designs i have and how to appropriate them on certain parts of the sweater that makes it appealing.

Have a few designs made but also concerned about the detail and what colors best comply with each other for the design and the color of the sweater. Pretty much dont want the person i commission a request from to deal with too much intricacy and simplifying things down further so theres not too much excess from the designs we choose esp for the price.

Also my budget is low at the moment and just want to figure out the prices i can expect to get for the kind of effort and work put into it, as well as materials are considered. Will it cost me alot for a minimum production esp if done with alpaca wool or even the most preferred wool?

So yeah just asking if somebody would help me in my process. I appreciate it alot.

Winter balaclava and caps

Hello. Maybe I'm off topic. But I don't know where to turn. I am a gypsy. I made 20 different caps and balaclava. I would like to sell them to someone cheap ($15 for 1). I want to return the cost of the yarn. I learned to knit, but I don't know how to sell. Everything is made of high-quality yarn. Maybe there is someone who will be interested in it and who can buy it and resell it. Such things are much more expensive. https://www.etsy.com/shop/KnitGeometricStyle?ref=seller-platform-mcnav

Request for Sweater and Socks

I'm need a custom knitted turtleneck sweater and socks. I'm trying to do a cosplay with a friend and I'm having trouble finding a sweater or socks that match up well. I'll post a link to a picture of the character for reference. It's a classic ribbed design. I want the color and look to be as close as possible so whatever material gets that done is fine by me. I need the socks to go above the knee to make sure the shorts will cover the ends.

I don't know what to say for the budget as I don't know how much stuff like this usually costs. I know sweaters can get very expensive so if anything I might end up just getting the socks.

Size: Adult

Timeline: No rush

Yarn Preference: No preference

Looking for someone to recreate one single matching mitten!

My friend had these beautiful mittens that they lent me for an extended period of time which were made by their family member.

I (being terrible) seemed to have missed placed one of the mittens and would like to commission a replica. (I will then come clean about my terribleness).

It seems to be an acrylic yarn with alpaca wool woven in.

If anyone is willing to give me a cost estimate that would be lovely too.

Looking for someone to make a ACNH sweater for my girlfriend!

My girlfriend loves the character “Sherb” on animal crossing. He wears this cute little sweater all the time, it is grey and has snowflakes on it and she loves it so much. (If you look up Sherb sweater on google it’ll pull up!) I want to surprise her by getting her, her very own Sherb sweater. The problem is nobody makes them so I was hoping to find someone willing to give it a shot!

The vest is bright/neon green for the main body, purple on the shoulders and around the collar with orange between the green and purple. I cannot find where to add images but I will add them in the reply or in a direct message.

Thank you

Interested in commissioning sweater/top (Fable by Alicia Plummer)

Hi knitters! A few months ago I came across Alicia Plummer’s Fable pattern on Ravelry and fell in love! I had every intention of knitting it myself, but it seems my knitting mojo has gone on semi-permanent hiatus. I just found this lovely community and I’m hoping someone might be willing to help me out!

EDIT: Pattern link in comments

Yarn: I bought Knitpicks Shine Sport with the idea of using it for this project, but I’m open to other suggestions. I’d like something non-clingy with a nice drape, suitable for warmer weather (I’m in the southern US).

Budget: Negotiable. Being a knitter myself I recognize the work involved.

Size: L or XL - my bust is 40” and I prefer a bit of ease.

Timeline: Flexible.

Thanks for reading!
