Welcome to Yarnpond!

Yarnpond is a new online system for knit and crochet pattern designers to manage their pattern testing process. For designers it's a resource pool of eager test knitters and crocheters, as well as a way to manage that pool and manage the test process from start to finish. For makers it's an opportunity pool of designers who need testers! We want to make life easier for testers and designers alike.

Below is a brief list of Yarnpond's features, and you can read about the system in more detail on the features page, or read about the "team" on the about page.

Right now we have 1637 testers, and 143 designers on Yarnpond!
