Any Knitters?

Post by Artistwolf on Sat Feb 25, 2017 8:39 am

Hi guys! As you may have noticed, I've been taking a bit of a break from this site (and every other site I'm on except Etsy) but I just thought I'd pop in and ask a favor(?) of someone.
So, my question is... does anyone here knit? It would probably be most useful if you knit frequently and are at least fairly good at it. The thing is, I want to start selling my knitting patterns on Etsy, but I can't really do that without having them tested first by someone! Just to make sure my knitting pattern works and isn't too confusing.
So, my only patterns at the moment are for a variety of small dogs. I've got a Labrador, dachshund, Pomeranian, and labradoodle pattern that I'll eventually sell for $5 each. Right now I have the labrador's pattern almost completed, but I'll have to add some more photos before I'll share the pattern with you. But just looking early!
Anyway, would anyone be willing to test out a few little dog patterns for me? You can see the completed puppies on my Etsy account: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ArtistwolfDesigns?ref=hdr_shop_menu
Thanks!

No one? Thought I'd add that these are very easy patterns—you just need to know garter stitch, how to increase (knit front and back), how to decrease (knot two stitches together) and how to cast on and bind off. Very basic! And they knit up pretty quickly!

Sorry, I haven't knit in years and even then I never really graduated beyond scarves. I attempted a wool diaper cover once but never finished. Embarassed

I knit a straight swatch once. Lately I haven't been crocheting either. But it's good to see you, Artist. Smile

Could you post the pattern somewhere and ask for feedback? Maybe a knitting group?

Hiya,
Sorry, totally missed this thread (I was at a folk festival all weekend...).
I'm a knitter and could be convinced (very easily) to test knit :-) feel free to PM me more details. :-)

I wish I knew how to knit Sad. But if I could, I would knit for you!

Hope you are well, kiddo!

Thanks Scaredy! Yeah, I've been good! I've been kind of cutting things out of my life that have been bothering me and I really feel like I'm more focused on what really matters again. It's great to see you all again though!
And knitting is awesome, you should try it sometime, it's not too hard to learn Wink
