Over the years I have had several testers try out my patterns, but I usually find people through Ravelry or Etsy. I decided it was time to have a running list of people I can contact when I have a new pattern, that needs to be tested. 🙂
All that you need to know is the basics of crocheting, which will vary a little bit for each pattern! I would love to have people of all skill levels! You will have to commit to creating the pattern in the time frame that we decide on (I am flexible), follow all of my instructions (you can change colors), be willing to tell me any problems (typos, confusing areas, recommendations, errors), and provide me with a picture of your finished item. I will always provide a list of materials that you need, abbreviations that I use, and stitch descriptions.
How It Works:
Basically, if you decide to be added to my tester list, I will send you an e-mail with a picture of my patterns and any key information that you will need (materials, sizing, etc.). Then, you would let me know if you would like to test out the pattern and the approximate time frame needed to complete the project. Next, I would send you the pattern for free, so that you could make the item and let me know if you find any mistakes, typos, or confusing areas and also a picture of how yours turned out. That’s it!
There is no obligation to want to test every pattern, you can say no. The more mistakes and recommendations you find the better, so feel free to give your honest opinion.
If you are interested in being one of my testers, please let me know!
Currently, I need some testers for my sea turtle basket!
