Test Knitters Wanted!

Announcing a new knitting pattern by Helena Bristow, 'Crichton' is a lightweight, lacy cardigan perfect for layering over sundresses. And it needs test knitters! Please contact cleverknits@gmail.com if you are interested in test-knitting this pattern.

Update: we have all the test knitters we need, but thanks for your interest! Sign up here to be informed when the pattern is available for purchase - you’ll get a coupon code for $2 off when the pattern is released! I expect to have it ready in early June.

Sir Alexander Crichton was a 18th century physician who penned the first known description of what we now call ADHD. In his 1798 book An Inquiry Into the Nature and Origin of Mental Derangement, Crichton describes a "mental restlessness" which I find quite appropriate for this pattern, with its ever-changing sections of lace.

Size: 32” (36”, 40”, 44”, 48”, 52”), intended to be worn with 1” negative ease

600 (800, 1000, 1200, 1400, 1600) yds fingering-weight yarn
size 5 and 6 circular needle, 32”
stitch markers
waste yarn or stitch holders
5-6 small buttons

Gauge: 22 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on larger needle

Note: yardage requirements are not yet exact (they're based on my best guess rather than detailed calculations), but should be pretty close. My swatch is from Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in colourway Shady Verdant. Right now I don't have enough to make a whole sweater out of it, but that may have to change, because it's FANTASTIC.
