How To Sign Up To Be A Tester
There are 2 ways to sign up to be a tester.

  • Contact me on Ravelry. My user name is jessika. As the subject on the message put PATTERN TESTER. Please include your name you would like to to use for you, your email address, & how long you would like to be contacted to see if you would like to test a pattern.
  • Use the contact form below. Replying to the post works but for some reason it doesn’t always let the commenter know it worked.

Sign Up For Pattern Testing

Reminder: NO ONE will have access to your email but me. I will be using email for contact, etc for pattern testing.


If you would like to be a pattern tester please check out the category PATTERN TESTING located at  There you should find patterns you can test.  The top one is usually the latest test.  Be prepared though to have no patterns to test.

This means you have to have been active on Ravelry at least 2 weeks or less from when you signed up to test a pattern. If you haven’t been then I will not send you a pattern to test and I will remove you from the list of pattern testers. If you see a pattern has been published since you have applied please reapply.
