What is Test Knitting, Anyway?
Updated: Sep 4, 2020
If you have been following my blog or Instagram you've heard me talk about test knitting, but you might not know what it actually entails. I didn't, until I started learning about designing.
Test Knit vs. Knit-Along
You may have heard of a knit-along. A test knit is similar in that a group of knitters are all starting the same pattern at approximately the same time, and interacting with each other throughout the process.
There are some great benefits to this as a knitter. For one, I don't know about you, but I don't have many "in-person" friends who knit, certainly not as much as I do. A test knit or knit-along is an opportunity to socialize with other knitters - and in this magical online world of ours, a chance to meet like-minded people from all around the world.
