(Another) Test Knit!

For the non-socky amongst you…

I present Sānu!

A shallow but slouchy hat pattern with Latvian Braids and Cables providing visual interest. The pattern has both charts and full written instructions. A deeper, even slouchier version can be also knitted.

Sample shown is the shallower version, knitted in Malabrigo Silky Merino (150 yds / 137m, 50g, Shade 425 Madre Perla).

To fit sizes: 16, [18, 20, 22, 24]” / 40, [46, 51, 56, 61]cm

Photo tutorial on Latvian braids can be found here.

Testers will be required for both versions – shallow and deep, both written/charted instructions and for each of the sizes.

Like the socks – I’m running the test through Free Pattern Testers on Ravelry. You’ll need to sign in (or join) to Ravelry and join the FPT group, then sign up in the forum thread – which is here.

The test will end on November 22, 2013.

Test Knitters Needed!

I have a pair of socks ready for testing. Some of you may have seen the Riverscape socks at the Glasgow School of Yarn, but for those that haven’t – here they are:

Using just one skein of fingering weight yarn, these top-down socks have a spiralling motif which coils around the leg and across the foot. The socks have symmetrical motifs. There are 3 sizes available too.

I’m running the test through the Free Pattern Testers on Ravelry. You’ll need to sign in (or join) to Ravelry and join the FPT group, then sign up in the forum thread – which is here.

The test will end on November 22, 2013 and testers only need to knit 1 sock for the purposes of the test (you will be allocated either a left or right sock to knit).
