Rastita Design Challenge Part III: Call for Test Knitters!

As of 11/15 at 1:43 PM, I have the test knitters I need, and I am closing the call.  Thank you so much, guys!

Hello friends!  Sorry I've been remiss in posting - we've been dealing with some urgent personal stuff, so I've been spending all of my time on that instead of fun things like knitting, sewing, and creating blog posts.  Sigh.

However, in exciting news, the Folded Lotus pattern is just about ready for test knitters!  What I need from test knitters is feedback, particularly about:

 - readability, clarity, and difficulty of written and/or charted pattern
- layout and flow of pattern
- other notes, comments, or concerns about any aspect of the pattern

Edited to add:  Test knitters should be able to cast on, knit, purl, do simple lace, and work with two colors of yarn.  You will need 2 skeins of the main color (shown in blue) and 1 skein of the contrast color (shown in pink) of Rastita, or 500 yards of the main color and 200 yards of the contrast color, both in a DK-weight yarn.

In return, all test knitters will receive a copy of both patterns from the Rastita Design Challenge.  I will be closing the call this Friday, November 15th.  The deadline for submitting test knitting notes is Sunday, December 15th.

If you're interested, please send an email to:

cory at indieknits dot com

with the following information:

- how long you've been knitting
- your approximate skill level
- your favorite color and animal
- why you'd like to test knit for me

Thanks again for joining us for the Rastita Design Challenge!  I've had a great time doing this - so much so, in fact, that Ariel and I are already scheming another design challenge... stay tuned!
