Why do I have to do a Gauge Swatch Test?
As a pattern tester, it is extra important that you work the pattern to gauge. Designers need to know that sweaters will fit, blankets will be the right size, hats and socks aren’t too big, etc. If your gauge is off, than the final size of the project will not be right.
Applications submitted without a gauge swatch will be asked to send a photo of their gauge swatch before it can be reviewed.
