Rosa Mundi Handknits Pattern Testing

Rosa Mundi Handknits patterns are checked for clarity and errors by way of a testing period before publication. Volunteer knitters make the design for themselves with their own yarn while providing feedback about the process, the yarn they used and the final results. Knitters testing the same design are able to share the experience in a Ravelry chat thread so testing is much like a knit-along! Testers who complete the test receive a gift copy of the final pattern at publishing time.


Testers are notified of a testing call by an email with the following information: a photo, a description, the type of yarn or a specific brand/label if necessary, the amount of yarn needed, the skills required and the deadline for the test. Testers examine the details and then decide whether or not they would like to apply for the test.
