Requirements from the tester
  • To add this as a project on Ravelry,
  • to complete the hat,
  • take and post photos,
  • to provide feedback on the pattern layout and explanations
  • to complete a survey outlining your experience of using this pattern.

I will expect an update weekly, though this does not take a long time to complete.  I've had some very disappointing experiences with testers from yarnpond and will be more vigilant with this test.
