Test Knitters Wanted!

forsta-sida

Update: The pattern is finished and available for free here!

My first knitting pattern is finished – the sock beanie that I wrote about earlier. It is renamed to 2X2, as it is made from *knit two, purl two* ribbing. It is a classic and simple hat, easy and comfortable to wear (I have worn my everyday since I finished it) and easy to knit. The plan is to upload it to Ravelry within a few weeks, after the pattern have been thoroughly checked by test knitters. I have found one but would like to have it examined by another pair of eyes. I have written the specifications below, I used Hedgehog Fiber Sock and it is the yarn I recommend in the pattern but you can off course knit it in a corresponding fingering weight yarn. My sister who is a graphic designer helped me with the layout of the pattern, and I promise you that it is as clean and simple as the hat and very easy to read. Post a comment if you are interested to test knit and write what yarn you will use and I will send you the pattern!

    I really like this, but I have a question about altering this. I actually wanted to make a 1×1 rib version of this, but with the same crown shape. Is it possible to alter it into a 1×1 version? Thanks!

      I’m glad you like it. The pattern is now finished and available for download HERE.

      I’m sure altering the 2X2 into a 1X1 is possible, though I can’t tell you how to do it off the top of my head. I suspect you would have to alter the decreases a bit in order for them to look right and fit the new repeat (k1,p1,k1,p1 instead of k2,p2).
