Test Knitters?

blucard5 blucard4

This pattern has taken a bit longer (partially due to finals, room remodels and general laziness) to get finished than I expected but I’m at the point where I’m going to need some test knitters. I thought I’d ask here before I asked on Rav. Would anyone like to test knit this pattern? It’s a cropped, seamless, top down raglan with eyelet details and 3/4 sleeves. It’s knit with a cotton wool blend and takes about 3-5 skeins of Cascade Sierra, depending on the size knit. I was thinking of asking for feedback by the 14th of July but I might make the date a bit later.

I’m going to make it available for free and I can’t compensate test knitters. The pattern has three sizes that are based on finished bust sizes. There are 34 inch, 38 inch, and 42 inch busts but the pattern is modeled with 2 inches of negative ease (38 inch size on a 40 inch bust). I’m really hoping that someone would like to test the 42 inch size because it’s the only size that I haven’t knit myself. I’d like to get a variety of test knitters, however, so it doesn’t really matter what size you’d like to knit. The pattern is still in its not-so-pretty stage so it’s just a .doc without the final photographs (because I haven’t shot those). Leave me a comment with your email or shoot me an email at andi.untanglingknots@gmail(dot)com if you’re interested.

Sorry this post is lame and not very entertaining.

ETA: I have enough test knitters now.






  1. This sweater is such a charming style. Is it PERFECT for that dress… you look lovely.

  2. This is gorgeous! Looks like you've got some great shaping incorporated in it, and the lace inserts are too cute!I would love to test knit it for you, although working full time means that I couldn't commit to finishing it by mid July, more like end of August. I also really hate working with cotton or cotton blend yarns, so you'd have to let me know if subsituting yarn would be a problem for you.Oh, and did I mention that you look adorable in it, and how much I love that dress?!

  3. I would love to test knit it, it's such a beautiful cardigan, but I'm afraid I can't finish it mid July either (busy and very slow knitter). As the range of yarns is not that big in the Netherlands, I'll have to look for a substitute yarn as well!

  4. I would love to test knit it! It's so pretty, I loved it when you posted the pictures a while ago ๐Ÿ™‚ I would like to substitute the yarn too, though – would a 100% cotton yarn work? Wool is too hot for summer cardigan in Greece! I can't promise a definite date, maybe end of July/beginning of August? I can probably knit it faster than that, but I'd rather finish it sooner than be late!

  5. I would love to test knit this for you!

  6. I would love to test knit this for you also, its such a great sweater/cardigan!

  7. I'd love to test-knit this. The 42-inch happens to be my SIL's size, and the 34 would be mine…

  8. You did such a lovely job on that cardigan! I have tons and tons of yarn – do you do step by step instructions, i am a newbie at this.

  9. This is lovely! I'm glad your found test knitters easily! It's an interesting pattern: seamless, not to long to knit, feminine, etc. It's my first visit to your blog and I'll be back for sure!

  10. Hi, I don't dare test knit things for people yet ๐Ÿ™‚ but I did nominate you for the beautiful blogger award over at my place ๐Ÿ™‚
