Have you ever test knitted or test crocheted for a pattern designer?
A good friend of mine encouraged me to do so a few years ago, and I kind of brushed it off. I didn’t understand what the point was, other than getting to test a new pattern. Fast forward a few months when I participated in my first test knit for Lo Rain Knitwear, and I loved it! I learned some new skills such as combining knitting and crochet, as well as the tubular bind-off, and loved having the community of fellow test knitters to share thoughts and ideas with. And I found new makers to follow!
This month I joined Sabina’s test knit for her latest design, the Sugarboo Bralette in DK weight. If you have never knit a tank top, top-down, this is the pattern for you to learn!
I decided to stock up on Lionbrand’s Truboo Yarn from We Crochet – and what an enjoyable knit this has been using Truboo! The yarn is made from 100% bamboo yarn and is just delicate enough for a silky, skin-caressing bralette. I love that it possesses a subtle sheen and creates amazing drape… the yarn looks and feels so luxurious! I used the colour Slate – do you like it?
We Crochet now carries an amazing array of Truboo colours… I have Truboo in Scarlet, Mint and Light Pink…. I am thinking of picking up some more shades!
Have you worked with Truboo before and what did you make?
