  1. I am a self taught crocheted and I love to try New patterns. I consider myself intermediate. I love big projects suck as blankets or throws, I also love making hats for kids. Thank you for your time ??

  2. Hi! That’s awesome, I would love to become a pattern tester! I learned crochet from a friend’s workshop and since then I never stop searching for cool stuff to make!

    1. How neat to learn from a friend! Just be sure you’re subscribed to YarnHookNeedles and you will be included in all of the pattern testing emails! Thanks so much for coming and sharing where you learned to crochet!

  3. I learned to crochet (and knit) by my mother when I was 8 years old. Mom cannot read patterns but she can look at a stitch then recreate it. I envy her that talent. When I was 16 I saw a blanket I wanted to make for my mom. My best friend’s mom taught me to read the pattern and I made it. My mom envies me that I can read patterns. I now can “talk” my mom through pattern instructions. My daughter is in college and Crochet’s to relax.

    1. That is so neat! You’re totally right now, to have the skill to just look at a piece and then recreate it…WOW!!! That is some mad skill 🙂
      I too enjoy crocheting and knitting to relax!
      Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. I would love to become a pattern tester. My sister taught me to crochet when I quit my job to stay home with my children. I haven’t stopped since and I also taught myself to knit. I love creating new things and have done a variety of projects ranging from small newborn shoes to mermaid tale afghans ? Many blessings!

  5. I have just found your site and am sorry to say that I have never tried your patterns but will go look for them no. I am 3 yrs out from lung cancer and spend most of my days crocheting. I have severe stenosis in my back which keeps me from moving walking for long periods of time. I learned to crochet and knit in high school and I am 72 soon to be 73 and am so happy I have this craft. Crocheting keeps me calm. I hope you will consider me for testing a pattern. I have been doing mostly craft shows the past 6 years. Thank you, Noreen

    1. Hello, Noreen!

      I’m sorry to hear of your difficult physical struggles but I am glad to know you have found something enjoyable to do most days! I love how a timeless craft can unite so many people of different ages, backgrounds, cultures and more!
      I will definitely mark you down as a tester! Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂

    I have been crocheting since I was 15/16 years old, (about 20+ years). I am still eager for new patterns, techniques, and stitches. One can never get bored with crochet. At least I can’t lol.

  11. Hey YHN,
    I would also love to test any patterns you have. I would say my crochet skill level is upper intermediate. My father’s sister taught me to crochet about 8 years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed every project I tried. Please keep me in mind for any future tests, best regards ☺

I’m in the UK ,I learnt US stitch terms first and I do know UK terms too.. I have done many crafts over the years ,jewellery making,cross-stitch etc..once I learnt crochet that was it, it is my passion..I would say I was intermediate crocheted ,I love a challenge and doing new stuff
