Anghymesur Shawl

Job type Test knit

This is an adjustable, fingering-weight asymetrical lace shawl, inspired by the stitch pattern designs of Gannet Designs. 

 It is designed that you can 'knit until you run out of yarn' and uses almost one full skein of the suggested yarn.  Though it was designed to show off a gradient skein, it would suit just as well with a solid or variegated yarn as well.

Ownership of the finished item The finished item is yours to keep.
Requirements from the maker
  • You will use your own yarn, but get to keep the finished object. As well, you will get a final copy of the finished pattern for your own use.
  • You will not share or distribute the pattern PDF.
  • You will be able to complete the test by the deadline posted.
  • If circumstances come up and you cannot complete the test by the deadline posted, you will notify me as soon as possible.
  • You will post any errors or other issues you encounter with the pattern
  • If you are altering the pattern to your own preferences, please post first to confirm. I don’t usually mind alterations, but I do have to make sure that the elements of the pattern I need tested are being tested.
  • Finished Projects should include a photograph, preferably modeled (if applicable) and in good lighting. I may ask for your photograph to be featured on the Ravelry pattern page if I like it, but that is not a requirement of my testers.
  • Testers should fill out the feedback process when they have completed their project

Please be aware that the patterns you are receiving when you are testing are draft patterns -- final details and final photography may not have been completed. Also, the draft patterns have not yet been sent to the tech editor.

Rewards from the designer

Testers who complete the test will be given one self-published pattern of their choice from my Ravelry Store, as well as a final copy of the pattern that was tested. 


The designer has created the following milestones, in order to keep track of progress during the test knit. By marking off each milestone as you complete it, you can easily keep the designer up to date with your progress.
