Seeking test knitters for a textured women's sweater

Screen Shot 2018-08-21 at 8.40.58 PM.png

Hi friends,

I am currently seeking a limited number of test knitters for a textured, fitted pullover knitted in a fingering weight yarn (sock yarns would work best to create a nice stretchy fit!) The sweater is knit in pieces and seamed, and is accented with slightly puffed sleeves and twisted rib cuffs, hem, and collar. The turnaround on this test knit is slightly shorter than I would normally do, so please keep that in mind if you would like to participate. All info about the test knit, pattern, and how to apply is below. Thank you for your interest ❤️
