Testers Found - Fox's Double Heart Knit Illusion Scarf

UPDATE TESTERS ARE: Thelma, Emanuela, Lavina, Aisha, Angel


I have never in my life created a knit pattern.  In fact, when I have tried using people's charts to do knit illusion I can't do it.  I can follow a written pattern but not their charts.  They were too confusing.  This made me sit down and create a chart pattern I felt that just about anyone can understand.  So I have applied the science of a taking a drawing on graph paper I designed of two staggered hearts and made it into a chart for knitting what I call a double heart illusion scarf pattern.  If you are unfamiliar with Illusion Knitting, you will be working the scarf using two contrasting colors of yarn which will just look like you are knitting a striped scarf however when you view the scarf at an angle you will see the true pattern of the double hearts.

So... I'm looking for some brave people who knit.  Right now, I'd like people that are familar with Knit Illusions and who knit at a steady speed who know for sure they can get the testing of this pattern for a scarf completed in the time frame allowed below. HOWEVER, if you feel you are comfortable doing this pattern from a chart, email me doing simple Knit and Purl stitches from a chart, feel free to email me.  I will be knitting the scarf at the same time as the testers so this will be quite interesting for me.

If you are currently testing a pattern for me, please don't ask to test this pattern.

When I find enough testers I go back and change the title of this posting from Testers Wanted to Testers Found. Before emailing me, please go back and check this link to see if the title has been changed. If the title has been changed, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not email me asking to test.

If you want to be a tester, read the instructions below and let's get started! Remember, everyone who tests any of the patterns will have their picture of the completed tested item shown in the blog next to their name as a tester. So show off your talents. I'd really like it if when I put the pattern up on Ravelry, if each tester or person who works this pattern would add it as a project there so I can post a link to everyone who makes this items pictures.

1. Must be a follower of this blog and a subscriber. Not a follower yet? Sign up. Let me know your follower name.

2. Must be able to finish testing by Saturday January 8th. (this is a guess. If the majority of testers finish early, I'll post the pattern and pictures earlier)

3. Must be able to send me a picture of your finished item attached to an email.

4. Must be able to send me errors of any kind you find in the pattern.

5. It'd be a plus but is not mandatory, if you were a member of Ravelry so you can add the project when the pattern opens up to everyone.

6. You can use 2 SOLID colors of yarn you'd like. They must be the same brand so that when you launder the scarf it will not warp from different yarn brands. 

If you want to test, send me an email to the address below with your Follower name. Only the first so testers emailing me will receive the pattern to test. Please don't post a comment that you'd like to test. I can't send a copy of the pattern to a "comment." You have to email me as it states.
