See Cory’s call for test knitters here.
I mentioned in my previous Design Challenge post that test knitters are a really important part of getting a clear and correct pattern. Well, it’s about that time!
I’m looking for a few test knitters for my as-yet-unnamed cowl. In fact, if you have any ideas for a name I’d love suggestions for that too.
It’s a relatively simple project, but you will need to know how to knit, purl, increase & decrease, and pick up stitches, as well as working with two colors of yarn.
size US 7 needles, or size needed to obtain gauge
buttons (3-5 depending on button size)
two colors of DK weight yarn (I used Malabrigo Rastita)
As far as yarn amount goes, if you don’t mind a short cowl then 50g of each would probably be sufficient. I had 100g of each and was able to make a fairly long cowl with a bit of yarn left over.
I’ll send the pattern to all test knitters by Friday 11/15, the test knit needs to be finished by Sunday 12/15.
In return, you’ll get a copy of the final eBook with both my pattern and Cory’s Folded Lotus pattern.
I don’t have any awesome modeled pictures of my cowl yet, but you can get a pretty good idea from the sneak peeks in the previous posts. I’ll try to update this post with a better picture soon.
If you’re interested in test knitting my cowl pattern, please email me at starielknits at gmail dot com.
