Test knit sign-ups
Become a test knitter!
Test knitting is a vital stage in creating great knitting patterns. Test knitters try out the pattern before it's published to make sure that all the instructions are present and clear, and provide feedback on sizing and yarn usage for the project.
It's really helpful to have a range of experience levels test patterns – you just need to be able to:
- knit to the specified gauge
- work from a pattern that's still being tweaked and may be edited when you're part-way through knitting
- create a project on Ravelry including photos of your finished item
- work to the given deadline for the test knit. Deadlines range from two weeks for small accessories to six weeks for larger garment
You get early access to the pattern before it's published, and, in return, you receive a free download of the finished pattern.
If you'd like to be considered for a current test knit, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including your Ravelry and Instagram user name, and which pattern(s) you'd like to test.
