Expectations of Testers:
* Must fill out Google form (https://forms.gle/Uo8NwwvioEFrhBaUA) in addition to commenting below to be considered.
* Use Google Docs to access pattern and make all comments/questions on the Doc.
* Keep in good communication during the test and immediately let me know if there are any problems.
* Create a Ravelry project with clear, well-lit photos linked to the pattern within three days of release (if you're having health issues with Ravelry please just note that in the question on the Google form).
* Provide 2-3 clear, well-lit photos, at least one of which should be modeled or on a mannequin.
* Provide a solid estimate of how much yarn you used.
* This is a very firm deadline because I am submitting this pattern to a blog. Please only apply if you are sure you can meet the deadline!!
Sizing Info: 18" deep and about 56" along the curved top edge. The pattern is easy to extrapolate to make it bigger, and I have no problem with testers doing that.
Other Information About the Test:
This was designed to be a very beginner-friendly pattern (and also a soothing meditative knit for advanced knitters!). I'd love to have 1-2 beginner knitters test this out for me, so don't be shy!
You can use whatever cast on method you prefer for this pattern.
