Pattern Testing

Calling All Testers!

I am always on the look-out for fast and reliable knitters and crocheters to test my new patterns. It is through my incredible team of testers that I am able to find any errors, and confusing areas in my patterns, so that they are easy to follow when released to the public.

What are we looking for in a pattern tester?

Basic Crochet Skills Required, Including:
Chain
Slip Stitch
Single Crochet
Double Crochet

Crocheting Flat & In The Round

*All patterns to be tested are written in English, and use standard US terms.
*Additional skills may be required, and will be included in the pattern testing information sent out in the pattern testing call.

Requirements/Rules:

There is no obligation to test every pattern.

As a pattern tester, you  will only be testing one pattern at a time. Once the testing period for the pattern your testing has concluded, you may join the call for the next pattern to be tested.

You will need to provide your own yarn and supplies for the project, and keep track of yards/grams used.

Deadlines are Non-negotiable.
Pattern testers need to be able to commit to the deadline set in the testing requirements. Please keep in mind pattern releases can take months. I release most of my patterns in collections of 10, and this takes time. I will need each project completed on time, so that I can keep pattern testing moving and on track for the collection release date.

No revealing pictures on social media until the pattern is published! All correspondence – pictures, patterns, ect, are confidential.

Follow the instructions as given in the pattern without making any alterations.

Proper Feedback must be given. Communicate any errors including pattern instructions, measurements, spelling, grammar,  punctuation, stitch count, etc. I am also looking for suggestions and constructive feedback about the pattern. If something doesn’t fit right, please let me know. Don’t be afraid to be picky and detailed!

You MUST post and link a finished project page with pictures on Ravelry, or review the pattern on my website THE DAY the pattern is published. Preference will be giving to those willing to do both.

Preference will be given to knitters and crocheters who are willing to review a pattern on my website AND link a finished project page to Ravelry, and who also have beautiful Ravelry and Instagram profiles that are updated regularly.

Compensation:

Testers who complete the test — meaning fulfill all expectations listed above — will receive:

  • A code for the final pattern once released through my website, Ravelry, or both
  • A code for another self-published pattern of choice from my website or Ravelry, good for one year
  • Good juju for future tests
  • …and, of course, a huge heap of my gratitude!

We will be sending out separate emails to those who want to test crochet, test knit, or both.
Please select which emails you wish to receive.

I will send out an email when new patterns are ready to be tested with pattern and testing details, and will select testers from those who are interested. I will only be in touch when new testing opportunities arise!

There is no obligation to test every pattern.
