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.

Need help/Cosplay Freddy Krueger Part 1 Sweater.

Hello, I am looking for an expert knitter to help knit me a part 1 Freddy Krueger Sweater, I used to get all my sweater from a sweet lady from Germany but unfortunately she’s retired. I’m planning on making another costume but sadly I don’t know how to knit. I want the sweater to be knitted from Merino wool or a quality material comparable, all red with green stripes just on the torso and back, the sleeves are red (sorta like Christmas colors). I need the neck to be thick and the sleeves cuffs to be on the longer side so they can be folded up. I have plenty of pictures of what I need exactly. I need it to be a Size LARGE/XL adult, and I’m open to your quotes on pricing. Please don’t be afraid of messaging me, if this is something you are interested in bringing to life. Thanks a lot.

Seeking Help: Recreating Sold Out Fair Isle Sweater

Hello! I find myself in a bit of a unique situation and thought this might be the perfect place to reach out for some assistance.

My boyfriend stumbled upon amazing Fair Isle sweater that he's completely fallen in love with but It's sold out everywhere. I have detailed pictures of the sweater.

My mother told me that she might be able to recreate the sweater if she had a knitting pattern to work with. So, I'm on the lookout for either:

  1. Someone Skilled in Creating Knitting Patterns: If you have experience in creating knitting patterns and think you can turn the detailed pictures I have into a pattern, I'd love to hear from you!

  2. A Talented Knitter: Alternatively, if you're a skilled knitter and confident in tackling a Fair Isle design, I'd be thrilled to discuss the possibility of you taking on this project.

Christmas stocking edit

Hello! I have two Christmas stockings which are very sentimental to me. They currently have names on them, but wanted to have the names changed. There is another which my mom had already changed several years ago, so I know it’s possible, I’m just not talented enough haha.

In addition, if you could make another stocking from scratch that is of the same style, I would be extremely interested. I understand it won’t have the “age” of the ones I already have, but just being in the same style would be awesome.

They’re knit stockings, just not sure how to share images from my phone on to this post. I’m on the east coast USA. If you think you can help, please feel free to DM me and I can share pictures and everything else that needs to go in to it.

Thank you!

Help me destash? Esp for Seattle/Portland folks

New to this subreddit. Thanks for understanding my slightly odd request!

I have an enormous amount of yarn (@thesunshinechild on ravelry if you’re curious) and I cannot possibly knit with it all in a reasonable amount of time.

I’m hoping to find someone (or multiple knitters!) to help me destash by knitting up my stash into things I can wear and use!

I live in Seattle, so local knitters would be preferred since it’s easier to collaborate. Portland would also work well.

I like many types of things but tend to go for sweaters and tops, scarves, and socks. Bonus if you’re interested in making something from my “favorites” on Ravelry.

No timeline. More interested in finding folks who are interested in making things I also vibe with rather than a tight deadline.

Have a great day!

Edit: I have mostly natural fibers (some include ~10% nylon) in primarily fingering to aran weight. Almost all indie hand dyed or similar. I would definitely look at my ravelry stash if you’re interested in making something.

Red socks


I would like to find someone interested in making me two pairs of socks. Red with white heel and toe that I can wear on game day. The heel and toe don't need to be outlined, like in the Boston Red Sox logo. Just plain white heel and plain white toe. Nothing fancy. My main question is, how will they wash up? I don't want the heel and toe to turn pink after I hand wash them. Thoughts on how to keep this from happening will be appreciated! I am in Texas. Please let me know if you are interested and also how we proceed? Thank you!!

mid calf, adult. Wears a size 7/5 to 8 shoe.

Can someone please knit me this turtleneck jumper?

Beige cashmere crew neck sweater with wide horizontal tonal stripes and ribbed cuffs

Hi for some reason I'm desperate to get a sweater that Leonardo Di Caprio wears in the film adaptation of The Great Gatsby but it seems to have been custom made and nothing similar is available as far as I can tell from my searching. It is a beige cashmere crew neck sweater with wide horizontal tonal stripes and ribbed cuffs, see image here: https://images.app.goo.gl/k3oVUMtVd8KZsLEo7 I know very little about knitting but I imagine it is a tricky one given the tonal nature and how thin it is (also able to be worn without a shirt underneath). I'm UK based.

UPDATE: Have been provided with a link to a similar jumper as per the comments so will investigate that.

Desperate for a 1940s-style sweater...need it in a month

Hello! I know this sounds bonkers. We just booked a trip to the Isle of Skye at the end of August, and that really doesn't give me a lot of time. I was hoping to get some photos taken there, and in my head, I have to be wearing a 1940s style sweater. Any really fast knitters out there willing to help? In my fantasies, it will be one with more than one color, but I'm also happy with more simple knits. Also happy to buy the pattern from a modern reworking, so it has multiple sizes built in. I'm about a size US 10/UK 12, and I would be willing to see what you're asking. ETA: I'm in New York.







Or happy to defer to you on a preferred pattern! Please help me bring my vision to life!! 🤞

Stuffy for my baby due in October

I was suggested to do this by a friend who requested here a year ago and loved what she got.

I have no idea what to expect but my request would be to have a stuffed animal made for my daughter named McKenna due late October. Something personalized with her name 'from dad'

Not set on an animal but my favorite is an octopus but her mom has lions and elephants in the baby's room already.

If you could let me know what is possible and a price I would appreciate it. Thank you.

I have a sentimentally important jumper damaged by moths that I’d love patching.

It was knitted by my mum for me about 40 years ago and only worn for special occasions. Last year I noticed it’d been eaten in a couple of places and I was distraught. Is this kind of damage even repairable? It’s not a top quality piece but it means so much to me. Does anyone know what I should do? I’m in San Francisco but I’m happy to ship anywhere if someone can help. Thanks in advance for any assistance offered.

First time commissioner of anything knitted

Looking to have this art piece that I own to be created so I can hang it in the house. Can't add an image so below is a link to the image. No idea on what it would cost, but willing to pay market rate for the work to be done, budget not really an issue.

I reside in Canada but can be shipped anywhere in Europe, North America or parts of Asia and I can figure it out from there. If the work is done well, there will be a request for probably 20+ more in a similar style from some friends.

Looking for someone to knit me a sweater vest


Hi, I'm looking for someone to knit me the above pattern, which I've bought. I'm an adult female so will probably need the medium size. I've never had anything custom knitted before so am unsure about pricing and budget, as while I am on a tight budget I also appreciate that hand knitting is very time consuming, and wool is expensive.

No particular deadline/timeline.

Sweater from Picard Quote

Hey Y’all,

I know nothing about knitting but I love me some sweaters. I was watching Picard season 2 and…let’s just say it’s not the best season of trek.

BUT picard had a DOPE ASS sweater that I’m lusting over.

It’s not for sale, but I found someone who posted a pattern that is very similar for free here.

What would it cost to commission this? I’d definitely want higher quality wool that’s closer to skin, not rougher scratchy stuff.
