Do you want to join my group & become a crochet pattern tester?

I’m constantly in the need for crochet pattern testers to test new designs. I’m looking for pattern testers with all kinds of experience, from beginners to experienced.

On this page you can read all about how crochet pattern testing for Joy of Motion/me works. You can also find out how you sign up to become a crochet pattern tester. In addition to that you’ll learn more about what’s in it for you, as well as me/Joy of Motion.


Why I need crochet pattern testers

I’m constantly working on designing new crochet patterns. All designs ranging from patterns with skill level beginner to experienced.

Even though I’m a skilled pattern writer, I also want to be 100 % sure that you’ve remembered all the small details before  I hit that publish button.

Even though I’m often crocheting & testing my patterns more than once, I’ll easily skip some of the important details. I’ll often end up blinded by my own text. That’s why I’m looking for crochet pattern testers discover those mistakes for me.

I’m currently having my crochet pattern testers sign up through this site, as I’m always interested in making new crochet friends & partners.

Why  become a pattern tester?

There’s many reasons to why you should sign up to become a pattern tester.

The most important reason might be to increase your set of skills & gain experience. Through reading different types of patterns & looking at them closely, you’ll easily gain experience that will help you become a better crocheter.

If you’re also a crochet pattern designer or starting out as one, you’ll also gain great experience in pattern writing through testing patterns.

If you’re just enjoying crocheting & love the looks of a pattern, pattern testing is also great for you. I’m currently not able to endorse you further for your work, except also sharing pictures through social media as mentioned below.

Before signing up to test a pattern you should consider if this is a pattern you would like to make anyway, because you will have to purchase the yarn for the item you would like to test yourself. At the same time, the finish project will be 100 % yours.

How does it work?

Right now all you have to do is to sign up on this page. You’ll then be signed up to be notified the next time I’m having a pattern ready for testing.
What I’ll do is send you an email every time a crochet pattern is ready for testing. In that way you’ll always be in the loop to get a chance to test a pattern.

Those emails will contain all the details of this new pattern.

It also includes a link to the pattern, where you can test this specific pattern. If you think you’re not able to finish the pattern within the time limit, I do look for testers who are able to start & still give feedback.

All tester communication happens inside my Facebook group for testers.
