There is one week left until my Helagon scarf/wrap design test finishes.
I have been very lucky in getting a tester for each length for both weight yarns being tested.
I am really enjoying seeing all the progress photographs.
Some beautiful scarves are being made in wonderful colour combinations. Red seems popular - red and black, red and white, and red and grey, and they all look stunning. Two different shades of blue and a blue and green. White is also popular, being combined with blue, purple and black as well as the aforementioned red. Finally a blue with a contrasting red/orange variegated yarn with small sections of blue to 'join' the two together.
I have had several comments on how fun this pattern is :)
I think my one tester who was having problems with the changing of yarn colour has now "got it". A bit of a language barrier, but I have several German testers and I think between us we managed to explain what to do.
So far only one error has been found but I have re-written a couple of sections for clarity after comments from my testers and done a few other tweaks.
Once the content is finalised (hopefully no more changes) I still need to convert it into my template.
And I want to get some more photographs of the longer version when it isn't blowing a gale.
I asked for advice on the Designers forum on whether to put a collage photograph as my pattern 'hero' shot to show the different ways it can be worn but the overwhelming response was to use the above photograph.
