The pattern for this test will be distributed in pieces, over the first 4 weeks of the test. Only testers who are still active and in good standing with communicating about the test will receive all the pieces of the pattern.
You do NOT need to complete each segment before the next one arrives—there are still a few weeks after the last segment. I do this to avoid giving out a free pattern to anyone who might not be serious about testing.
January 24: Sizes, materials, gauge, stitch patterns, abbreviations, schematic and sleeve instructions.
January 31: Body
February 7: Yoke
February 14: Finishing
Complete the application survey by 4AM EST on Wednesday January 22, 2020.
