|Requirements from the maker||
My tests are very mellow - no check-in requirements or mini deadlines or surveys. The only requirements are as follows:
1. Finish knitting one sock by the deadline.
2. Share at least one public post to Instagram with the project hashtags
3. Post the project on Ravelry (NB: if Ravelry is inaccessible to you because of the site redesign, please message me for alternative options)
I run communication for my tests via a group Instagram DM. Please do not use the chat room here on Yarnpond.
|Rewards from the designer||
The designer is offering discounted or free pattern(s) to testers
After the test is over, all of my testers always receive (1) a copy of the finalized pattern they helped test, and (2) a free copy of any one of my other patterns, as a small thank you gift. To receive your free pattern, you must have your project posted on Ravelry with photos by the time I send out the discount code after pattern release day.
