EDIT: okay! i have my testers. thanks to everyone who volunteered. i never expected so many eager folks. thank you all so much and i’ll spread the test knitting love around with each pattern. funny that i never thought to ask you all before.
hi blog readers,
i was wondering if any of you would like to test knit this hat? unfortunately, i can only pay in patterns and showing off your version on the blog. here are the specs:
Yarn: x(145) yd [x(133)m] worsted weight wool
Needles: Size 7 US [4.5 mm] 16 in. [40.6 cm] circular and a set of dpns in the same size, or whatever size needles you need to get gauge
Gauge: 5 sts and 7 rows/in. [2.5 cm]
Sizes: S(M/L), 21(22-23) in. [53(56-58.5 cm] head
i would love to have someone do the larger size and someone do the smaller size. it’s a bit of a complicated pattern – writing wise, not knitting wise. so i’m mostly looking for clarity of instructions and double checking of the charts. i do require that it be knit out of wool. this one was recycled sweater cashmere, but i did another out of ella rae plain wool (similar to cascade 220). email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. oh! and yardage for the smaller size would be great ;)
p.s. I’m also going to have a lace seaman’s scarf that will need test knitting soon.
