The Top 10 Secrets to Successful Crochet Pattern Testing


Help! I'm a Crochet Designer;
where do I start?

Crochet pattern testers are the hidden army of makers behind every great crochet designer so it makes sense to look after them and deliver a successful crochet pattern testing process.

  • Do your testers often find errors or complain that stitch counts are off?

  • Do your testers have lots of queries during the test process?

  • Are you wasting too much time dealing with queries and fixing errors?

  • Looking for a smoother test process for yourself and your testers?

I have created the ideal booklet which gives you all you need to know about how to look after your crochet pattern testers, avoiding 'red-fl;ags' in your patterns and keep them coming back for more.

Your pattern tests will run smoother with  fewer queries. The crochet pattern testers will return again and again, meaning you fill your test spots quickly. You will have more time for designing rather than correcting and fixing errors.
