You may have read in my previous post that I am currently working on a number of patterns that I’ll need testing. I have had a fantastic response to this so thank you if you have replied. As I have said, the first time I used Facebook groups to communicate with testers was when I was testing the Baby Fox Bobble blanket pattern, which went so well I am doing it again!
My current Summer Bobble Pom Pom Poncho design available in my Etsy shop is a ‘one size fits all’. However I have had a lot of requests from people to add small and plus sizes and therefore I thought it was time to make specific sizes available.
Now I am offering the the chance for crocheters to test the patterns for me so that I can make sure the sizes are accurate, and that the instructions are correctly written for each size.
I will be running a Facebook group to communicate with testers and this will also be a place for the testers to add photos and share their experiences and work.
If you would like to test the pattern please be ready to answer the following questions when you join the group:
Which size/s would you like to test? It is essential that the sizes are tested and worn by real people.
Would you consider yourself a beginner/intermediate/experienced crocheter? It is very useful for me to know how experienced my testers are so that I can choose a range of abilities and make the patterns accessible to everyone.
Would you be willing to provide photos of your process and a photo of the finished piece being worn by a person of the size you have made? I’d love to showcase your work and also show real people wearing my crochet rather than models.
I am happy for you to use any type of yarn, please keep a record of how much yarn you have used to make your poncho and the name, brand and colour. I love people getting creative with the patterns and choosing different colour schemes and fibres, it can change the look of the garment dramatically!
