Needed: Crochet Testers for Dragon Scale Shrug
misc- Crocheting a straightjacket
midknight_starr
The rough draft V.1 is ready and I have testers for the 1X and 2X/3X, 1 tester each so far, but I could use more. I’m still looking for testers for the small, medium, and large, but I could still have additional testers for the plus sizes. The back measurements are 15”x8” (16″x9”, 17”x10”, 18”x11”, 19”x12”, 20”x13”), but the important measurement is for the width (shoulder to shoulder), and I made the sleeve length customizable.

So here are some details about the pattern and what I need:

I need testers who are experienced crocheters, who are comfortable working with thread or fine yarn and are familiar with post stitches/working around the post of a previous stitch, who is able to complete this project in a timely fashion. I'm really not sure how long it will take, I know that it took me just shy of 3 weeks to complete the "prototype" without a written pattern, but I would like to have it up for sale sometime in the summer.

I need at least One or Two testers for each size: Small, Medium, Large, 1X, 2X, and 3X.

I designed the pattern so that it can be made in size 10 crochet cotton or Patons Lace, but I'm sure it could be made in any comparable size 2/fine yarn. I don't quite know what the yardage is yet, but I know that it took over a half ball of the Aunt Lydia's giant ball of classic crochet cotton (2,730yds) to make my size medium prototype shrug and I'm "guesstimating" it's going to take approximately 4 balls (1,992yds) of the Patons Lace at 498yrds a ball for a size medium. So I would assume that a small would be just a little less, and for the large and extra large, add another 1 or 2 balls.

The hook size I used is 3.25mm, but a gauge swatch will need to be made. I covered the gauge measurements for both "right side" and "wrong side" for the stitch pattern.

I will especially need help with checking my stitch counts, math, and to make sure everything makes sense and is easy to understand.

Everyone who tests my pattern will get a completed, sale-ready copy for free.

If you're interested, please message me at my Facebook page, by Midknight, or email at midknightstarr@gmail.com

  • Gauge is not too important. Size is determined by the length of the ribbon.

  • Intermediate pattern because of some of the cluster stitches used in row 6.

  • Size 10 crochet cotton

  • 1.80mm steel crochet hook

  • Optional: glass seed beads and pendant.

With this pattern, you have many options:


  • You can string beads on and work them into the picots, or where ever you would like into the main body of the choker.

  • You can hang a charm or pendant from the center motif, or attach a charm or pendant to a small lobster clad clasp and clip to the center motif, then you can change the pendant with your moods.

  • You can also choose to make the crocheted ribbon that is included in the pattern, or use 1/8” satin ribbon instead.

  • Make the main choker piece in white or another neutral color, then make, or buy, different color ribbons to change out to match different outfits.

I have had a couple of people ask me how I made my flower pin, and here it is!

I really can't say whether or not this is an original pattern, I think that I have seen similar flower patterns in the past, but I can't remember. It is an extremely simple and quick embellishment to make.



Materials:
Small amount of any worsted (medium) weight yarn - 2 colors
Size G/6-4.25mm hook
yarn (tapestry) needle
1 inch pinback
fabric glue or matching thread and needle to attach the pin back
