Welcome to the secret JEWELS Test Knitting Page! Here you'll find all the information you'll need to make your selection for this round of test knitting. Here are just a few things to keep in mind:

This round of test knitting runs from July 12- August 16th. Please consider this deadline when selecting which design you'd like to knit.

We currently only accept test knitters who will be using the original yarn. You will receive a 20% discount code to order directly from the yarn company themselves. I've included the amounts for each pattern and size if you'd like to calculate a cost estimate ahead of time.

We're so excited about this latest collection and hope you'll find something here you'd like to test knit! Should you be interested in doing so, you can sign up here, until Friday June 22, 9pm Berlin time: https://makingstories.typeform.com/to/v7MuPw
