5. Thanks to Our Test Knitters!
Welcome to the fifth week of ’12 Weeks of Raglan’! Today’s post is dedicated to our wonderful test knitters, who helped us perfect the patterns in Ready Set Raglan to ensure that our readers have the best knitting experiences possible! In last week’s ’12 Weeks of Raglan’ post, pattern writer Alice Sleight talked about the importance of test knitters, and why we had so many for this book. You can enjoy her interview here!
For this post, we asked Ready Set Raglan‘s test knitters to share some photos of their raglan projects and some insights into their test knitting experiences! If you’re after some colour inspiration for your own raglan pullover, then here’s a good place to start! For even more ideas you can search #ReadySetRaglan on Instagram, or the individual pattern hashtags: #EirysPullover, #WoodwardiaPullover, #GrainnePullover, #CyrenPullover, #ElowenPullover, #EilaPullover, #MerywenPullover, or #LobeliaPullover. Alternatively, you can look at the ‘projects’ tab on Ravelry!
