Construction Notes

  • The lower band is worked side-to-side, then the first row of the body is worked along one selvedge edge of the lower band.
  • The body is worked as one piece from the lower band to the underarms, where the back and front are divided and worked separately to the shoulders.
  • The shoulders are seamed, then stitches for the buttonband and armbands are worked around the selvedge and armhole edges of the body.

Testing Information:

Length of test: 6 weeks

Beginning Friday, March 6, 2020

Ending Sunday, April 19, 2020


Planned Self-Publication Date: June 2020


Target Number of Testers: 14–21 (2-3 for each size)


Compensation: As a thank you for helping me to fine tune this pattern, upon completion of the test I'll send you a coupon code to use on Ravelry for a free pattern from my Ravelry Store. You'll also receive a completed version of the pattern you tested, upon publication.


Testing Schedule:

The pattern for this test will be distributed in pieces, over the first 2 weeks of the test.


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.


March 6: Sizes, materials, gauge, stitch patterns, abbreviations, schematic, Lower Band and Body.

March 13: Upper Back, Left and Right Front, buttonband and armbands


Application Deadline:

Complete the application survey by 4AM EST on Wednesday March 4, 2020.
