Test Knitters Wanted - Spring Bloom Baby Cardigan

Hi all, I've just completed this darling baby cardigan size 12 - 18 months, and completing the sleeves of size 6 - 12 months. It's open for test knitting now. Go over to my Ravelry forum post to respond to it. 

Size 12-18 months for my colleague who ordered a custom made for her daughter,

Size 6-12 months for my daughter. There is an extra yarn over in this one compared to the brown one above.

Introducing the dainty baby sweater with lace yoke! The lace yoke is designed to make knitting interesting and add sweetness of this adorable piece. No short row is needed to accommodate for room for shoulder, which makes it an easy knitting piece.
Target Number of Testers: 10 (about 1-2 testers for each size)
Approximate Hours to Complete: 10 - 15 hours
Deadline: 25th November 2016 (Flexible)
  • 3.9 mm 60cm-long circular needles (or other size to obtain gauge)
  • 3.9 mm dpn (or other size to obtain gauge)
  • 3.67 mm circular needles (or other size to obtain gauge)
  • waste yarn
  • markers
  • darning needle
  • buttons
Yarn (Light worsted 100% cotton or any other material, as long as it’s not fuzzy like eyelash yarn which might impair the visibility of design) 
For size: 0-6 (6-12, 12-18, 18-24, 24-48) months 
500 (700, 800, 1000, 1200) metres
Intermediate, techniques used in the pattern: pick up, provisional cast on
Pattern Style: abbreviated, written, with chart for the lace yoke.
Inexperienced knitting testers accepted? Yes!
Digital photo of FO required? Yes, please. =)
Expectation on test knitting: 
I would like
  • Each tester knits the sweater of their chosen size. If more than 2 testers knit the same size, I’ll request another tester to knit the size no one picks up.
  • pattern to be tested on the clarity of the pattern, technical errors, spelling errors and layout.
  • I would like testers to post photos to their project page and link their project page to the pattern page once it goes live. Photos and pattern details cannot be shared publicly in any form (Ravelry, blog, etc) until they have confirmation from me and the pattern is published.
  • to have feedback on the fit of the items so preference will be given to testers with children to try the items on.
  • generic project survey filled in, specifically on the clarity of the pattern, technical errors, spelling errors and layout.
