I need testers for my Chonky the Elephant - Crochet ePattern
Click pattern photo to apply:
This is my first ever pattern that I attempt to release, and it’s also my first tester call!
If something looks off or I do/don’t something other designers usually do/don’t in a pattern test, please let me know!
Yarn: Super bulky (WPI: 5)
Hook: 6 mm (US J-10)
Its fine if you want to use any other yarn or hook size; it would be fun to see how it would work up–just let me know if that’s something you intend to do.
You can choose the color yourself!
The pattern works up very quickly.
I’m looking for 5-7 testers and will close the tester call 22nd August.
Deadline: 27th August
Expectations of testers:
- That you post a photo of the finished project (on Ribblr or Instagram), preferably with my handle tagged where appropriate (@MakesbyMalin) and/or a link to the pattern when it goes live
- That you can finish the project before the deadline
- That you let me know if you have any feedback about the pattern (clarity, typos, etc.)
I’ll try to figure out how to open a chat for the tester group!
Note that this will be released as a free pattern when the testing is done!
Is it mandatory for a size 6 hook? I do have one but prefer to use a 5 as it keeps the stitches tight
You can use whichever hook suits you and your yarn best! The hook size and yarn is more of a recommendation than anything I’ve edited the post to make it clearer!
I love this its so cute! Now i do not have the super chunky yarn but i love making my own with the 3 strand trick so id be trying that and trying it with just 1 strand to see how cute it is both ways.
Thank you I have applied its so adorable!
Absolutely adorable! I LOVE elephants (although I do say that about nearly every living creature) Just applied!!
Wow, this response is leaving me speechless! I thought that I’d reach 5 testers with a bit of luck and a few days, but you guys are over double that already! It really makes me feel honored that so many people are interested in testing the pattern.
For the sake of keeping my word, I’m still going to keep this post up and announce the chosen testers on the 22nd, but I just wanted to express my gratitude for all of you who have expressed their interest in this pattern so far Thank you all, so much!
It’s so cute Is this pattern a no-sew pattern tho?
Hi is this just a head? I would like to test this, but would be using a 3.25 mm hook
Thanks it can actually be no-sew through making the ears first and crocheting them in (I mention this in the pattern and which row) but what’s written in the pattern right now is to sew the ears on I’m fine with people doing either option!
Haha, one could believe that it is! But no, it has a body with knobby little legs and a tail if you choose to make one I had a side-view picture uploaded together with the “main” picture to appear in the post, but apparently it doesn’t show ^^’
I would like to be a tester please.
From the time of this post being published, the tester call is closed.
It was very hard to choose testers! Thank you so much for applying, whether you got a spot or not.
Once the testing period is finished you will find the pattern in my shop, for free. I look forward to seeing your projects!
Thank you all, once again!
