Looking for knitting pattern testers

Calling all knitters!!

Fire and Smoke

What do you think, do you like it?

Purple Rain

This is the Swizzle Hat, a pattern I developed when I was learning stranding. It's a nice beginner pattern because the carries are usually just 2 stitches wide (occasionally 3) so it's not too hard to keep the tension even.

The two hats pictured were the ones I did as I developed the pattern...they both have flaws so I have kept them for my family rather than sell them, however I do want to sell the pattern (along with future hats). I think I have all the kinks worked out and that the pattern is written clearly, but I would like to have a couple of people test it for me before I start selling it.

If you would be interested in testing it, I would send you the pattern (free) and in return I would like you to give me the following:
  • Any feedback you have on the pattern--mistakes, confusing parts, etc
  • Let me know what needle size/yarn weight you used, and how many stitches you CO for that gauge (this is a simple repeating pattern so can be easily adapted to different gauges) I'd like to be able to include tips for multiple gauges on the pattern, and thus far I have only knitted it in sport weight.
  • Send me a photo of your completed hat that I can use in my pattern listing
  • If you choose to sell hats made from the pattern (and you're welcome to do so!), please give me pattern credit in the listing
I would like to find at least two people to test this pattern. So what do you think, will one of those people be you?! Leave me a comment (with a way to contact you) if you are interested!


  1. I'd be interested, if you don't mind that I live in Canada... you can check out my work here:

    I think your patterns are very nice!

  2. Thanks! I sent you an email from your personal blog!

  3. Jenni, that is awesome! If you need additional help, let me know. My brother has been begging for a hat and that looks perfect for him.

  4. Love the hats ~ wish I had extra time to knit ;)
