Scroop Patterns – Call for Testers!

I’ve got a new Scroop Pattern ready to be tested – and need approximately 6 testers in a range of sizes! Read this post to find out how to apply to be a tester!

What an ensemble! I really had to restrain myself from showing you all of Nim’s photos, because they are so fantastic. Emily @cottoncandydesign Emily chose this really fantastic pastel plaid for her Modern Fantail skirt, and I think the stripes give such a fun effect. I originally recommended against strong stripes and checks in this pattern, but now that I see them in …
