Want to Test Knit a Starter Owl?

UPDATE: The testing slots have all been filled! Thank you SO MUCH for the many responses—it was great fun to hear from so many knitters, and it makes me want to brainstorm a big crazy project that we all could get involved in. (Hmmm, leave a comment about it if you have an idea for what that could be…) The owl pattern is coming soon, so please keep your eyes peeled for it!

I’m looking for a small group of knitters to test knit this little owl!

(I asked Soupy to take a look at the pattern, but he was no help at all.)

Specifically, I’d like to have the pattern tested out by some knitters who are at the advanced-beginner level—people who know the basics like casting on, knitting and purling, and increases (kfb) and decreases (k2tog), but who are new to knitting toys or at least new to Mochimochi Land patterns. Circular knitting is not required.

Testing is easy—you just work the pattern and let me know how it goes, and send photos of your finished project.

The deadline for the test will be September 16th.

Once the test is complete, I’ll send you a credit to the Mochimochi Shop as thanks!

If you are interested and will have time to knit the owl by the deadline, email me with a little info about yourself and your knitting experience (and testing experience, if any). I may not be able to reply to all the emails, but I will post an update here when the testing slots are full.

Thanks in advance!

  1. this is so cute, so far i have only tried the heart and am currently working on the sausage dog pattern. I would love to try this out too!

  2. I’d love to test knit for you! I have made up a lot of your patterns, mostly of the tiny variety. You can see my work on Ravelry. My user name is beckjohn there.

  3. Would love to. I have made your other owl (and 🦊 and narwhals and 🐝). Going away tomorrow but will be back with plenty time to test this version.

  4. I’d love to try! Far as mochimochi-patterns go, I’ve only ever tried the little bat. I am however
    not a beginner knitter, but would probably consider myself “intermediate”, as I’ve tried some
    bigger projects and knitted some stuff designed by Sachiyo Ishii.

  5. I would love to be a test knitter, but I am not new to toy knitting. Let me know if I can help!

    Thanks!
