So, I have a new blanket on my hooks. It has been a long time since I made anything bigger than a hat, so I am really enjoying the hooking and process of writing the pattern…even if I did have to frog an enormous amount…see here for the proof!
I am also on the hunt for a handful of pattern testers, so if you are interested here are the deets… there will be 2 sizes of blanket
baby blanket and stroller blanket
You need to provide your own yarn – dk weight (approx 400g in main colour and 100g in accent colour…I think…I’m still not done making the original!
Time – I need you to be able to complete the test within 4 weeks of receiving the pattern and i’m hoping to release in March.
Spot any typo’s, pattern mistakes or make suggestions if you have any.
Finally, be able to share with me a clear well lit shot…think insta worthy!
In return I will send you the full edited pattern and also another pattern of your choice from my designs and I will love you forever. So, if you are up for testing then dm me, leave a message or contact me via insta and let’s become hooky buddies.
Hey lovelies, I’m in need of pattern testers again. This time for my Toasty Ear Flap Hat. Written for sizes newborn – large adult.
Here’s what I’m looking for.
Do I need to have test crochet before?
Nope… as long as you can crochet and read from a written pattern you are good to apply to be my tester. Infact, I am looking for people with varying abilities of crochet.
Is there a deadline?
Yes…if you are successful in applying for the role of tester I will require you to finish the test within a week of receiving the pattern.
Other than crochet the pattern on time what else do you need me to do? Good question! I will need you to give me lots of feedback, to include the good, the bad and the ugly! Spot typo’s and grammatical errors and make pattern corrections. I need you to keep in touch even if this means you can’t meet the deadline…life happens, I understand that.
I also require a good quality photo of the finished item that I will be able to use on all social media, my blog and in my Etsy shop…I will of course tag you. Photo’s need to be clear and free from a cluttered background…think insta worthy!
I will require you to be active on social media, ideally you need to be active on Instagram and or facebook with a public account….What does this mean? I would like you to share photo’s with specific hashtags for the pattern, both during and after testing and the pattern is available on general release,
Do I get paid to test a pattern?
Nope…I wish I could say yes, but sadly the answer is no! You also need to be able to provide your own materials…in this case a small quantity of aran / worsted weight yarn and fluffy pompom (or make your own woolly pompom) However, you will get the pattern fully edited for free and you can choose another of my patterns for free also. If your photo’s are of good quality I will use them here on my blog and in my social media / Etsy shop and I will always tag you so people can head your way!
So if you are interested and can turn this around for me within 7 days, and you are happy with the terms above, ideally send me a direct message on instagram…you will find me @yarnyrobin. I have about 4 spaces available and if you are successful I will be in touch within the next week.
