Seeking test knitters for "Basic Mittens" pattern.
Hi folks! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.

I'm working on a "basic mittens" pattern, which will soon be for sale here on kh, with an accompanying video. It's nearing completion, and I'm looking for a test knitter for every size!

If interested, please post which size you can knit (and have the wearer try on, a single mitten is fine), within a reasonable time frame (say, a week or two?). Quality project photos might make it into the pattern.

Here are the sizes in the pattern!:
12m baby- yardsofyarn
2-4 years -- ratty1973
4-6 years -- Lizziek8
6-8 years -- lissplus2
8 years - Woman's S --sgtpam & hcarroll36
Woman's M/Man's S -- bottomdusters
(Woman's L/Man's S -- sharonp13 )
Woman's L/Man's M - smb611
Man's L - jagadeeshdev
Man's XL - Debbie
Man's XXL - Shandeh

GinnyG our "pinch knitter", thanks Ginny.

Can you tell us what weight yarn is suggested so we can see if we have it in our stash?

"Jr. XL"/Woman's Small (Q for anyone: does the "Jr. XL" sound right there?"
I think I'd call it " 'Tween/Teen/W Small" or "10 yrs to Sml Adult".

Thanks Sue.

Yes Jan, adult sizes are worsted weight (women's small and up). Kid's sizes are sports weight.

I'd be willing to test knit Woman's L/Man's S. My Ravelry ID is SharonP13 too if you would like to see some of my work.

I am willing to do the Man's XL. My hubby is "bouncer" size, so these will probably fit him.

I will test knit for you!
I'd love to do the man's Large! I'm also a pro photographer so I could send photos of the project as it is knitted. Also could have them done in a couple of days, as I am unemployed. I am AmmasBoy on Rav if you want to see a few projects.

eta: the photos on rav are just quick snapshots - no pro stuff - you'd get the good lighting and pro shots!

Men's Medium please
I'd love to try the men's medium. This is an easy pattern right, I'm still a bit of a beginner, but am always to try anything once, twice if it's fun!!! That's my philosophy!

Thanks!

Smb... It would actually be great to have at least one knitter that's new to mittens. You can watch the accompanying video (also still being edited, but I'll post a version for y'all), which is a bit long for someone who already knows mittens, but should be enjoyable for you. It goes through the whole mitten from start to finish! (essential parts, anyway.) I demo in the baby size, but it's the same pattern just with different stitch numbers.

jagadeeshdev, thanks for the photo offer, that's excellent. I've got a companion video, so I don't plan to include much for progress shots, but would love a nice final shot.
