I’ve been lucky to snag some really great chances to test new patterns. I love test knitting, it’s such a great way to help out designers while scoring a free pattern! Remember over Christmas I test knit my Cascade Falls cardigan? Gorgeous cardi, free pattern, a bit of say in design…what’s not to love? I’ve test knit a few hats, bunny slippers, a scarf and now my newest test knit I’m casting on is abstract butterfly lace shawl
Isn’t it pretty? I’m using an emerald green malabrigo sock yarn. I think. Decisions decisions!
If I’m ever feeling in a knit slump I like to peruse the test knit forums on ravelry and see if any tickle my fancy. I visited this morning and found all these great patterns available to test!
Love how the lace panel forms the decreases in this raglan sweater. Inspired!
sumu shawl. I mean, hello, Fibonacci sequence?! Is this not perfect for a math lover? Or for your favourite angels & demons fan? Christmas gift?! DONE!
So many cool new pattern to test, and all for free! It’s a win-win situation!
