It is done!!!
And, it is gorgeous! now just to rewrite the pattern so that it is easy to read, have someone else knit and crochet it up to make sure they get the same result! Thinking of adding a peter pan type collar in knit to it, for those who don't have a collar for it.

I fully expect it is gorgeous and I'll absolutely agree when you post a photo! It sounds absolutely lovely. Good luck with getting your pattern finalized, it sounds like a lot of effort but worth it. I'd consider volunteering as a test knitter but I'm certain it's way beyond my skill level, get someone who knows what they're doing. Thanks for adding the info for making larger sizes, it's so frustrating not to find them for myself or someone else. You're wonderful to think of us.

That made me think of Shandeh at Bernat, we both are a bit larger. I wonder if they'd be interested in it. She might be able to tell you how to get the process started too.

Shandeh? If you start a thread with her name it might get her attention. She's one of the mods and hosts our annual New Year's Eve bash here.

the pattern is written, all set, now to just find someone to work it, and not steal my design

You can also send Shandeh a PM by finding one of her posts and clicking on her name in the box at left (the box that provides personal info about posters).

It sounds like you're in the final stages of your pattern writing venture. That's terrific! You might find some test knitters here, but you'd have to post a picture of your creation, which would "let the cat out of the bag," so to speak. But on the other hand, you probably won't get any volunteers for test knitters unless they can see what they're supposed to be making. At any rate, if you don't find anyone here, I'm positive you can find some people on Ravelry.

Congratulations!

I wish I could help with pattern writing stuff, but the only thing I would recommend would be to follow the excellent advice already here in this discussion. I've never submitted a pattern before. My job with Bernat does not involve work with the Bernat Design Team.

it is being tested now, by amy and grandma
and should be done sometime next month (guessing). I have submitted it to Berroco because I am in love with their yarn, and plan to submit it to several other yarn companies, just getting in touch with them is the hard part!
