If you would like to participate in this test knit, you must apply as a test knitter to get a unique testing ID. This lets me know the details about you as well as that you have submitted a testing application before applying for test knits.
The Very Vital Ribbed Beanie is made with bulky, Size 5 weight yarn for its initial concept. There is a youth as well as an adult size, with both sizes being very stretchy and able to fit most.
You will need a bulky weight yarn, size 11 and 13 circular and/or double pointed needles, a tapestry needle, and a pair of scissors to complete this test knit.
Works well with varigated or tonal yarns.
The Spots System
To join this test knit, you go to the test knit form via the link below, enter your Unique Testing ID (you should have received that earlier today), and then select the spot you wish you take.This test knit has 5 Youth size spots, and 5 Adult size spots. I also have 2 understudy spots per size. An understudy is someone who can take someone’s spot if they are unable to finish their test knit. Please note, as long as you communicate with me, bowing out of a test knit does NOT mean you cannot try for a spot in the future. Things happen. As long as we can keep the discussion flowing and nobody is ghosting each other, it’s no problem.
The deadline for this test knit is December 31st, 2023. If you need more time, please let me know and we can work something out. The deadline should have a finished beanie matching gauge (as close as you can) and weight in the pattern. Please provide the final measurements of your finished item, as well as if you blocked it or not as that makes a difference. Please also provide any notes you may have to adjust the pattern in a way that would be easier to read, fix a mistake, or otherwise improve the pattern. As mentioned in your application, photos, online social media posts, or participation in discussion channels are all optional. I only ask that you keep me in the loop via email at a minimum! I’ll send out emails every once in a while asking for a status update to see if you need anything from me.
