Call for Pattern Testers - Blackberry Pie Sweater March 2, 2022 17:56

So, a couple weeks ago, I made a post outlining some changes that I'm making to my pattern testing process. I've decided not to completely abandon my old way of testing. I can see the benefits for us both in doing it both ways.

That said, I'm really, really, really excited that the pattern for the Blackberry Pie Sweater is now ready for testing!

You can read about the measurements, materials, gauge, etc… here.

Testing Info

This test has just started up on Yarn Pond, and is going through May 1, 2022.

If you think you can whip one of these beauties up in that time frame, I invite you to join the test! My only requirements are:

• A project page is created on Ravelry, with photos
• Knitting is completed by May 1, 2022
• Weekly updates are posted in the Yarn Pond chat room for the test.
• You let me know if anything is confusing or difficult.
• Honesty to yourself and me about your realistic commitment to testing.

Read all about the testing process, and apply here.


Knit it without a Deadline

Alternatively, if you want to start knitting this now, but don't want to commit to the May 1, 2022 deadline, 10 of the 12 pages of the pattern are available on Patreon right now and the completed pattern is planned to be posted this month.

It's $5/month to join my Patreon and get access to the pattern. There are lots of other benefits to joining, too.

Like reading about what this sweater means to me.
Discounts, free patterns and more...

I hope to see you joining in on the fun while we knit this pattern together.
