A while ago pattern designer Little Golden Nook was looking for pattern testers for her latest design: the Seedlings Sweater. Since I have some extra time on my I applied to test this beauty. Pattern testing is a absolute GO if you want to start designing your own patterns, like me. You learn so much! For example I learned a new way to crochet cuffs and of cours you learns the ins and outs of pattern designing.
I participated in the first round of testers.. and I know there was a second one. Which means the pattern was adjusted after I finished mine. My sweater for example has some wider sleeves, a lower neckline and the length of sweater is a bit longer.
The pattern was easy to follow, but had some tiny mistakes, which are improved later by Sandra herself. So your result might be a bit skinnier than mine. Never the less.. I love this sweater and I can’t wait for winter to come!
Royal Yarn – Zeeman
The royal yarn of Zeeman can be bought in the Netherlands (and maybe Belgium) and is 100% acryl. The yarn is nice to crochet with, definitely because you use a average sized crochet hook (4/5mm). Next to the yarn I absolutely adored the color.. I just bought but didn’t have any plans for it yet.. (yarn addict much?). Also nice: the yarn doesn’t itch, which is handy for when you wear your sweater.
As I said.. your version can be slightly different. But I like it a bit wider. I do know that I am going to make another one once the pattern is finished. A nice one for spring :-).
