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)

That’s it!

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.
