chalkstone sweater

some of you know, we had already a testing round for this 
sweater .....last year....
due to some unclear parts of the pattern i set it aside
and did not look back (shame on me!!!)

with some time inbetween and a few kicks (Thank you Liz!)
i rewrote the tricky part of the pattern and made a chart
for the upper part of the sweater

as my usual testing group tested it aldready, i do not want
to bother them with another test round of the same sweater
so i'd like to ask here for a little help

i need at least 1 tester for each size

xs (38 in finished bust)
s (41 in finished bust)
m (44 in finished bust)
l (47 in finished bust)
xl (50 in finished bust)

the sweater is designed to be worn with approx. 4 in of
positive ease

yarn. light worsted weight 20 sts x 25 rows in Stockinette
on 4.5 mm [US 7] needles

if your interested in testing the sweater and way more important
if you think you can make this rather quickly (i thought
of 4 to 5 weeks?) please pm me on rav with the size you'd 
like to knit or email me

thank you so much for your interest in testing this sweater!

think i have enough testers and hopefully they will
go through the pattern without the ususal mess i produce
when it comes to write a pattern.... ;)

THANK YOU in advance

  1. Isabell, I know I already did test knit the sweater, but as I love the pattern and have a second one on my whish list I am willing to knit the pattern again! :D But if you get other test knitters that's fine with me, I'll knit myself another Chalkstone anyway *grin*

  2. Isabell, I know I already did test knit the sweater size xs or s
    I test the poolside but I prefer this one is this possible to change?

  9. Hallo Isabell,

    ich bin sooooooooooooo begeistert von deinen Modellen. Ich habe sehr große Lust diese nachzustricken. Aber: ich bin der engl. Sprache nicht mächtig und hätte gerne von dir die Deutsch-Übersetzung. Gegen Bezahlen habe ich selbstverständlich nichts.

    Ich würde mich sehr freuen, von dir zu hören bzw zu lesen.

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen
    Manuela Otto
