Hi all,

I had a question but Im not sure how to explain it, but here goes....I was contacted my a local designer to knit accessories and perhaps sweaters for a show.  She's going to show me sketches, together we come up with a plan, she gets me the supplies, I knit the items, and then  get payed.  Thats where my question is, how much do I charge for each item, be it a scarf or a sweater?  We both want to be fair to each other but  I have no clue where to start.  Also, Ill be knitting the items for the show but then eventually the things will be converted to machine knitting.  I'm not really designing the things, but in a way I am because all she really has is a sketch (Im assuming this part).

Any tips/suggestions are welcomed please

You're writting the pattern, she's "designing" them.  I would actually start by figuring an hourly wage.  You don't know how long they're going to take you, but you can guess based on previous similar projects.  She's really asking for your labor, so charge her accordingly.

I second that.  Decide what you would want to be paid per hour, and charge her that.  Since she is buying the materials, you don't have to figure that into the price.  Good luck.  It sounds like a pretty fun/lucrative set-up for you.
