If you’ve been following me for a little while, you probably know that I LOVE testing patterns. I love using the experience as an opportunity to meet new people (the other testers), work with designers, and learn more and more about different designer’s processes. I am so grateful for each and every pattern that I have been able to test! And let me assure you...this one is no different.
Jacqui is so incredible! She creates the most wonderful size inclusive patterns, and they are all so beautiful. Her pattern layout is different than anything I have ever followed, but wowzers is it GENIUS.
The Testing Process:
The testing process for this sweater went so smoothly! The pattern was pretty much already perfect, which is just awesome. It was held on Slack, which really is a great platform for group chats! I am still learning the ins and outs of it, but it is pretty easy to use!
The Ursina sweater pattern is extremely size inclusive, and so much FUN to knit. I adore all the little details, such as the half brioche triangle and the raglan increases. It is such a wonderful pattern!
The Deets about my Sweater:
- I made the size XS/1
- I used Cascade Pacific Worsted, and achieved perfect gauge!
- I made the cropped version, and though I love it, I wish it were 3 inches longer. Then it would be PERFECT. Looks like I will be making a second, hehe!
- The sleeves...wow they are perfect. I have never made a knitted sweater in which the sleeves fit SO perfectly! It is awesome.
I love this sweater, and I can’t wait to see YOURS! Check out the pattern linked below, and watch the full video ;)
Until next time,
