Collarlicious Sweater

Post  SweaterFreak on Fri Aug 01, 2014 5:04 pm

Hi everyone

This is my first attempt to run a design here so there goes.

I need testers for this sweater


Here are the details

The sweater is seamless, knit top down using Contiguous method developed by Suzie M. It features a large collar reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn’s fashion sense, thumb holes and twisted rib cuffs and trim.

The sweater is offered in 5 standard sizes bust - waist - hip as follows. I added XL size to me usual offering due to many requests! so I am looking for XL testers. Don’t be shy.

XS 30”
S 33”
M 37”
L 41”
XL 44”

Additional measurements will be added later on today.

Target Number of Testers: 15 (3 per size)
Deadline: September 20, 2014
Tools:
Circular needles
US # 6 /4mm 16” /40cm,
4mm 24” /60cm,
4.5mm 24” /60cm
5mm 24” /60cm
5.54mm 24” /60cm

Gauge:
5sts/7rows per 1” with 4mm needles /US#6


Materials: 450(500, 500, 600, 650) grams of dk or light worsted weight (all approximate), \
few markers


Level: Intermediate (knitting in the round, increases/decreases)

I need you to

check pattern for accuracy and clarity
check the garment fit
verify yarn requirements
fill out a survey at the end of the test
take a nice FO photo and share it here!

I really LOVE this sweater!!!  I wish I had the knitting time to test but I am swamped right now... there may be an off chance I will be done with some tests by beginning of September and might have time then.  If not, I will definitely knit this once released, it is so perfect!

I wanted to say just what Crystal just said - as soon as I finish Poetry in Motion I could start this and could definitely free up all needles by the end of August.

Hi,
Currently I am testing only small things, that is why I just only wanted to say that this is a very beautiful design!

Great! I would do the 37 though maybe with adjustments for fat arms and hips? But anyway, I can ask more about that later Smile

Hi Ela

thanks for stopping by. I actually will need a tester in about a month for a DK colorwork cowl. It's a secret design so it will be tested here. Smile

This design is absolutely gorgeous, and right up my alley. The deadline is a bit soon for me, though. I would love to test when my needles free up at the end of September if you end up with a later deadline, let me know Smile

Oh my, this is absolutely gorgeous! I love such sweaters, I love, LOVE!!!!!!! turtleneck, the bigger the better!

But I would be unable to meet the deadline Sad I have too many testing projects to finish till mid September Sad But I will surely make one for me once the pattern is published! I've been dreaming on having such a sweater in my wardrobe for a long, long time!

Hi

Thank you for the offer and the compliments. Unfortunately I need this tested by the end of the September as I plan to release it at the end of Semptember/beg. of October as agreed with elann.com. This will be a featured pattern for them.

I will have other tests running here, so check them out.
