Thank you for your interest in being a tester! I appreciate all the time and work that goes into being a tester, and I also understand that you fine people have the hardest job.
You will be given the pattern in sections. Each of these sections need to be completed in one week. I understand that life happens and occasionally falling behind happens. If you find that you are falling behind due to whatever reason please get in touch with me. I am fairly laid back about my timeline until you get two weeks or more behind. At that point your likelihood of catching up is very slim.
The docs that you will be working from are not the original copy. Formatting these pages is not necessary. The master copy has headers, page numbers, and margins already set up. Your copies will also not include pictures. I ask that you avoid looking at pictures of the design while you are working the test. I know and understand that this makes your job harder, but I do it for a very specific purpose. This pattern must be easy to understand and figure out for all skill levels, so I am forcing you to go by written word alone. If you can complete it blind the chances of someone completing it with pictures available on their pages with ease increases.
I try to be available at all times and get back to you as quickly as possible. Please understand I do need to sleep occasionally. It is a good idea to check rounds prior to completing them against the doc if you have printed them. Once a test gets going it can and does change quite a bit, there’s nothing worse than finding out a mistake was fixed after you find it in a printed (outdated) copy.
As a tester you are responsible for:
Use any colors and any yarn weight you desire!
