Call for test

Aitäh! Nüüd on mul testkudujaid piisavalt!
Thank you! I have enough test knitters!

Leidsin vanades failides sobrades ühed skeemid, mis kuulusid 2012.aastal kootud sallile. Ilmne märk, et tuleb juhend kirjutada :).

I found from old files a charts which belong to an old shawl. It was a sign that I have to write it down.

Nii ma ka tegin! Kuna skeemi sai natuke paremaks muditud, ei oska nüüd täpselt öelda kuluva lõnga kogust. Seepärast tulebki läbi viia uus testkudumine :D. Lõngaks sobib nii peenike kui ka pisut jämedamat tüüpi lõng, vardad siis vastavalt lõngatüübile 2,5 mm kuni 4,5 mm.

So I did :). I made some little changes, so I can’t say exactly how much yarn you will need. For that I need to test it :D. This design is nice from lace to fingering-weight yarn, needles between 2,5mm (for fine lace yarn) to 4,5 (for fingering-weight yarn).

Kes soovib proovida, see kirjutab!
If someone wish to help with testing, please let me know.
Thank you!

I’m looked at time by time on Ravelry’s group “Free Pattern Testers“, but a week ago I found a pearl I definately wanted to knit – “Windswept pullover” by Emily Wessel. What kind of question? Of course I want to testknit that beautiful pullover!

As I have a almost 9-year old daughter at home, I choose that size. She loves green, so the yarn choice was also easy – green Drops Alpaca. The yarn is thinner than the pattern needs, my gauge was by 3,5mm needles 22*27 per 10 cm.

I cast on with Asa’s Amazing Tab Cast On – no need to frogg the crocheted chain. Then I just followed the pattern…. I used 165 g (~ 550m / 600yds) of yarn.

After finishing the raglan part seemed to me a little short (armholes are too narrow), but I think that’s because my gauge for row height is not perfect. When Hiie tryed it on, she said that it feels OK for her and she loves it very much – tommorrow will go to school with wearing it.

There was only one little problem – all measurements are done with non-metric system, but that’s easy to reacalculate :D.

The pattern was clear and well written, the knitting was pure pleasure. If the designer is satisfied with my work, I’d be happy to test her next patterns.
