I need a tester. If you can crochet and knit, then please reply to this thread. The pattern calls for size 10 circs or straights, worsted weight yarn, and size J crochet hook. I will share the picture and pattern with a trustworthy person, and if they have any suggestions or changes that would make the pattern better in both of our opinions, I WILL give credit on the pattern. Since this is a test pattern, you do not have to use wool or other expensive yarns, I would prefer you use acrylic, RedHeart in any color or color way. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask.

How complicated is this pattern. I want to try it for you but fear it's beyond my skill level.

whats the timeline on it to be done?

I could test it for you.

I am pretty bad at updating my ravelry page, but you can look at my notebook to see projects I have done.

GG, for this pattern you need to know how to knit, purl, k2tog, p2tog and yo, (crochet) chain, hdc, dc and how to increase in corners. It is not that hard, just a lot of repeating that makes it beautiful. I would be happy to have more than one person knitting/crochetting it at a time, but I am on social security, so I do not have a lot of money for testing.

Oops, spelled your name wrong AH10Z, please forgive me. There is no time line, I am just now submitting it to different pattern companies.

Would acrylic yarn be OK for it? I don't often use wool.

I would prefer it to be worked in acrylic, worsted weight

sorry, ladies, I have been in the hospital all day. I don't know how many testers I need for this, this is my first time. If anyone has advice, I am open!

Hope you are not sick, Paulaque, and if you are, that you're feeling better soon.

I think I would want maybe three test knitters to try out a pattern, but that's just me, and you may actually need more than that. Perhaps you could contact someone on Ravelry who has had a pattern test knitted to see how many he or she used.

very sick, the fibro fairy came and knocked me out, but that is my own fault for inviting her in after shopping all morning, thinking I was superwoman and not using my wheelchair. I will be good in a few days. Offthegrid, I LOVE your name, we are preparing for that right now ;)

I am checking in, severely dehydrated and hooked up to an IV, hoping to get out today sometime, just wanted to see if there were any problems. Found out I have the stomach flu, so should be okay soon, with a compromised immune system, even a little bug can knock me down for the count.

Get well! IRL got in the way and I hope to get started actually making the pattern very soon. My swatch worked fine so I think the pattern will be fine too. Sorry I'm so slow.

no, no, you are fine, just didn't want you all to think I had forgotten you. I am home now, still very sick, but good enough to sleep in my own bed (hopefully not in the bathroom)

I hope you're well. I sent you emails but I know your health may be keeping you from even reading them, I don't think I've seen a post from you for a while even. I've bound off and now can't find a J hook so I'm going to try an I. Fingers crossed. If I'd realized before I went to the store I could have bought one. I know I should have one somewhere but I've not crocheted much for several years now. *sigh* I think I'm running short on yarn and WalMart didn't have it today. I'll order some online if I must.

not feeling well at all, this crazy weather, an I hook should be fine, I can't wait to get a picture! Overall, what did you think of the pattern? Do you like the fabric that you made? What do you like most, least, why?

I hope you feel better soon. What's your crazy weather? We've got spring rain, had some lovely sunny days and I already have had the heat turned off. I think I'll turn it on in the morning.

I love the waterfall lace stitch. It worked up nicely in my Red Heart With Love. Somehow the lace stitch contrasts nicely with the yarn. I found my J hook this afternoon so I can try it. I'll puzzle over the crochet part again tomorrow.
