View Full Version : Testers for patterns (Updated see my new reply)

05-01-2008, 02:49 PM
Is there an area where you can ask for testers to work a pattern that you have created? I am in the process of making my first knitting pattern. It is working up faster then I expected. I will hopefully have it ready to be tested in 2 weeks (depending on how much my kids cooperate). Where can I post to ask for some (if this is something that we can do here) help on testing it once it is completed?

Not sure about the KH site itself, but I'm interested!

I am sure if you asked...may of us would help....

myself potentially included *smiles* Difficulty pending of course!

:waving: I'd be happy to test it for you. Just let me know!!

I'm sure you'll get quite a few volunteers here....

I'll help also. It would be fun.

Depending on the difficulty, I'd like to "help".

Oh thank you everyone. I am so excited that I have a few volunteers. I can't wait. To me this is pretty easy so far...mostly straight knitting. But it is still a work in progress. I am making notes for color changes that I am doing, only because silly me didn't make sure that I would have enough yarn to work the entire thing. But I will post pictures when it is done and then everyone can decide if you still want to do it. Just a little hint though, this is my first pattern ever that I have written for knitting. Also it is for babies, ok so that is 2 hints...lol.

Be sure to let me know too. I love knitting for babies!

That's one reason for test knitting - to make sure the final pattern will be clear enough to follow along.

Oh yea!!! Me too...got some "cashsoft" layin around here, would love to use it......

I'm interested as well:)

I'm all for test knitting :) I've written some of my own patterns before but have never had anyone else knit them except for a sock pattern.

Thank you everyone for the great response. I am just about done with it. :yay: I am hoping to have it done today and then rewrite the pattern so that it makes sense...lol. Right now it is written for me. I am hoping that I will have it ready to be tested next week. For those of you that are definately interested, please send me a PM with your email address. Once I have the pattern finished I will put it into a PDF file and send it to you that way. Also it will allow us to communicate back and forth with questions and progress.
