Payment Notes: Upon completion of the test knit (including a completed Ravelry project page with photos and a completed survey) and publication of this pattern, you will receive this published pattern AND a pattern of your choice from my Ravelry design shop.
Yarn RequirementsUp to 600 yards/150 grams of fingering weight yarn; you are welcome to use any color scheme you would like; and you are welcome to use a different weight of yarn if you are comfortable with converting the pattern yourself for your gauge.
Sizes AvailableOne size fits all. Feel free to customize according to your likes/dislikes, but I do ask that you complete one full repeat of the pattern so that I know all sections have been written well. I would like to have at least 4 of the test knitters using fingering weight yarn. To get an idea of what weights/color schemes other testers are using, I will list those here.
Skills RequiredWorking from a Recipe
Dancing in the Rain is named after the dropped stitch sections, which always remind me of raindrops and streaming water. This is a fun, addicting knit that is easily memorized and customizable. It is written for fingering weight yarn, which creates a lightweight shawl with a lot of drape. However, feel free to make this pattern yours by using the yarn weight and color schemes that you love! I think it would look beautiful in a solid, tonal, speckled, faded, or multi-color scheme.
This pattern uses simple stitch techniques and one basic lace motif. No experience required.
This pattern design is a collaboration with Running on Yarn. She is offering a 30% off your total order of fingering weight yarn if you purchase Running on Yarn yarn for this test knit!
Our goal is to have the pattern published August 1st, but if this is an unreasonable timeline, I am willing to extend the testing period slightly.
Tools: 5.0 mm (US size 8) needles, long enough to hold a shawl; darning needle
