Feather on the Wind Fingerless Mittens

Job type Test crochet

These fingerless mittens are squishy and as light as a feather, thanks to the beautiful Feather Stitch stitch pattern!
These one skein mittens are worked in the round until the thumb opening, worked back and forth to shape the thumb
opening, and then finshed in the round. The thumb and top of the mitten are edged in half double crochet.
With only a one-round repeat, these mittens work up fast, and are perfect for a more portable project!
Pattern is written in US Terminology.

Left and Right mittens are identical, and only one must be completed for this test.  

If you would like to test the screen-reader accessible large print version of this pattern, send me a message and I'll get that prepared for you!

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 to the testing chat
  • If you are altering the pattern to your own preferences, please post to the chat thread, or message me here on YarnPond 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.
  • I would like to have feedback posted the chat once every two weeks, minimum, please. That feedback does not have to be elaborate, it can even be ‘I haven’t touched this since last time’.
  • Finished Projects should include a photograph. While I would prefer modeled photos (if applicable), this is not an absolute requirement. I may ask for your project photograph to be featured on social media, if I like it, but that is not a requirement of my testers.
  • Testers should fill out the feedback questions when they have completed their project.
  • You may create a project page on Ravelry at any time you wish (also not a requirement).
