Become a pattern tester

Thank you for your interest in becoming a pattern tester for our new designs!

Why do I need a tester?

I have more ideas than time!

But also, when a pattern is digitized, it is done in many steps, and it is easy to make mistakes. Besides, I want to provide the best quality in each project.

Therefore, I need your help!

 

What is a pattern tester?

A pattern tester is a crocheter or knitter who is going to test if a pattern works.

The tester receives an unpublished or draft pattern to knit or crochet, and in return provides constructive feedback and valuable review.

 

What are the basic requirements?

  • Follow the pattern exactly as written, without exception.
  • Take quality photos and/or videos.
  • Have an open Instagram account.
  • Complete the project within the deadline.
  • Write feedback being brutally honest.
  • Follow me on Instagram @PuntoArtDesign

 

What does this mean for you?

Testing not only helps me to write error-free patterns, but it will also help you as a yarn lover.

  • You will improve your skills.
  • You will improve how to write your patterns.
  • You get the opportunity to try new and exciting projects.
  • You will get a high-quality PDF pattern for free.

 

Qualification and responsibilities

No experience is needed! All skill levels are welcome!

I’m looking for passionate knitters and crocheters who:

  • Pay attention to detail.
  • Will see a project through from start to finish and can meet deadlines.
  • You must be able to read patterns in UK terminology.
  • Give constructive and detailed feedback on a pattern and document potential errors.
  • Can take high-quality photos and will share progress/finished pictures 
  • Willing to purchase yarn/materials needed to complete the project

 

Compensation

I know the time and yarn it takes to test a pattern, so I offer a compensation package, which includes:

  • You get to keep the final project because your project is yours! So, you can do what you want, sell ​​it, give it away or use it!
  • You will get the final copy of the pattern you are testing.
  • You will get two printable resources of your choice.
  • You will get exposure on my website and social media (if applicable).

 

How does it work?

  1. The first step is to fill the application form below. So you will be part of the tester mailing list.
  2. I will send you an email with all the information about the new pattern to test.
  3.  If you are interested, you will follow the instructions sent in the email. 
  4. I will send the draft pattern. In case you have questions, we will be able to communicate during the testing period.
  5. You will send your feedback and photos before the deadline.
  6. I will review the feedback received from all the testers and will make the needed corrections to the pattern.
  7.  Once the pattern is ready to be released to the public, you will receive a compensation package.
  8. Finally, you can proudly share your project on social media, always mentioning that the pattern is from @PuntoArtDesign, but made by you!
