I finally got my act together and wrote up the pattern for my Ariel sweater, so I am no in need of test knitters. I’m opening up the opportunity for my loyal followers before I make the general open call on the tester groups of Ravelry (because you guys always end up being awesome testers for me!).

Ariel is knit seamlessly from the bottom up until the armholes, when the front and back are separated and knit flat. Only the shoulders are seamed together. This is my first pattern that uses seamless set-in sleeves, knit from the top down with sleeve caps that are shaped with short rows. The body of the sweater features a simple smocking stitch pattern with reverse stockinette (you better love to purl!).

If you are interested in testing this sweater for me check out my Ravelry group for more information and to sign up.

  1. I love this pattern SO MUCH! I might make it my fall sweater knit. I will wait for it to come up in Ravelry and then I will definitely be making a purchase…could you please remind us when it is up there please?! 🙂

    • Rebecca, sorry I didn’t see your comment before. It went into my spam folder for some reason. I’ve already begun the test knit and am looking for a mid-October finish. I still have some spots left in the bigger sizes, though, if you are still interested.

  2. So, so gorgeous!!! I love the colourway you chose, and the design is stunning. I look forward to knitting that, one day when I’m not pregnant anymore. 😉
