TESTING APPLICATIONS CLOSED
@AceAth3na101 has designed a succulent flower pot and is looking for no more than 5 testers of varying abilities, from confident beginner to advanced to test the pattern before publication.
When testing we ask you to stick with the instructions given (no free styling), checking stitch counts where applicable, making sure instructions are clear and easy to follow and looking out for any typing errors or duplicated instructions. Checking that round/row counts are in the correct order and that writing style is fluid throughout.
Testing time frame is from now until mid November (approx 14th Nov).
We ask all testers to complete a journal entry with your review/feedback which will be public after publication. Journals are not to be used for pattern notes, suggestions ect. There will be a dedicated message thread for those discussions.
Once testing and edits have been completed by a tester we will gift you the final pattern. If you don’t think you can complete testing by 14th November, please don’t apply to test. If you have been accepted as a tester and then don’t test the pattern you will be removed and won’t have the pattern gifted to you.
When choosing testers we do look at your previous makes and shops if you have them before accepting. This gives us an idea of ability ranges of those applying. If you have tested for us before it is more likely that you will be accepted.
Thanks in advance and we look forward to working with you.
I’m interested in testing but I have a couple questions first.
What are the yarn requirements? I don’t think I have enough shades of a single color.
Are any parts of this considered amigurumi? I can’t tell from the photo and unfortunately can no longer make such tight stitches.
This is awesome! I love succulents. I already have some testing projects going on but if this is still open when I’m done I will be applying.
There are quite a few amigurumi pieces as well as pieces worked in rows.
The yarn is cotton dk. We’ve used Ricorumi DK, but an dk cotton or cotton mix would work.
I will have to pass on this then but I think it’s beautiful. I hope you get all the feedback you need
No worries, I too struggle with the tight tension at times due to fibro, arthritis and what’s looking more and more like carpal tunnel.
Hi, I would love to test but just wanted to ask, how many shades are needed and can they be any yarn make or slight deviations of colour, or do they have to be the exact same type and colour of yarn as seen in the image?
There are 5 shades of green in total plus 2 colours for the pot and 1 for the soil. They don’t use massive quantities.
You can use any brand and whatever colours you have available, but preferably DK cotton or cotton mix. Cotton will give a nice finish to the project.
Thank you for replying! I think I have 5 different shades of green, but some in larger quantities than others.
