8ply dk = 4mm needles dont bother calling it anything else the world outside the usa (there is one) will wind up as confused as a goose in a blizzard.

10 ply = aran. = 5mm needles.

I am a very experienced knitter over 2 decades of intricate knitting of many many different combos. As a quick browse through either my gallery here - or at ravelry (happiclown) will show you. I am/have been a commission knitter for companies that sell garments internationally I also write and alter patterns-

all false modesty aside I have done patterns in a foreign language with less :pullhair:

if Natnz and I are struggling I would seriously consider a rewrite of your pattern. I wont touch your short rows explanation :?

Well if happi and NZNats are strruggling I would surely struggle with this as well so I will pull out now before I start to get stgressede over trying to figure it all out.
Sorry to let you down but I do not need to complicate my life further right now.
Good luck with sorting out your pattern.

I'm not quite sure as to why you ladies are having such a difficult time. I suppose it is because, of the yarn weights...which shouldn't be all that hard to correct.
At any rate, the 2 testers that have finished already have given me excellent feedback and here is one of their pictures of the FO.

If you are dropping out of testing PLEASE EMAIL ME. Do NOT post it in this thread because, it is hard to follow when there are a bunch of quotes and unclear uncommitments.

Please keep in mind that by dropping from the testing you are forfeiting the free pattern, which apparently you don't mind.

I'm terribly sorry that it didn't work out for you and I guess it just goes to show that the US is confusing.

Again, PLEASE email me if you are dropping out of the test phase.

I am having the same wool weight/needle/gauge issues as Happi is, as you know from our PM convos. The test knit is turning out preemie size and very dense for a small size and as you haven't replied to the last PM I sent you plus I am unable to access the pattern tester part of the forum. I'm really sorry but I am going to hand in my test knitting hat too :) I hope you find someone who can do the gauge/wool weight/needles thing, maybe an inexperienced/new knitter would be best :)


I did reply. I don't know why some of my messages are getting stuck in the "outbox" and not being sent. I'll check into it and resend it.
