Test Knitting!

I love test knitters! They are so fantastic because they take on your project knowing full well that your pattern might be a mess, but still lovingly knit up your creation. I always get nervous and excited when a pattern is finished and ready to be test knit: nervous, because I always think the pattern makes no sense and excited because, honestly, there's nothing like seeing someone else's fabulous finished object and thinking that you have a successful pattern on your hands. I have two patterns being test knit right now and I have to say a great big thank you to all of my test knitters. You guys are a pleasure to work with and have made pattern writing so much easier! Without you, who knows where all the fabulous independent designers would do!
If anyone reading this post is interested in test knitting, I have one open test knit for my Reesh Pullover that needs two more testers for sizes XS (32") and XL (46"), if you're interested, then pay us a visit in the Free Pattern Testers group on Ravelry


  1. I love test knitting for you Zaynab. You have such joi de vive and your designs are really beautiful!
