Before a new Muse pattern gets released, a bunch of lovely, talented ladies test it out. They give all sorts of extremely useful feedback, particularly on the instructions and how clear they are. They're all amazing people! And they make amazing things, too. ;-)
Here's a few of the Sophie cardigans made by some of the pattern testers. Several of them have blogs - why not go through and see what other fun things they make?
(We'd love to see what you make with the Sophie pattern too - if you make a Muse pattern, let us know so we can add it to the 'Made By You' page. email@example.com )

Oh I love the idea of a shawl collar Lee! I’m picturing it now, elbow patches and all…! Would love to see a photo once you’ve given it a try. :-)
These are great! I’d like to try a menswear-type shawl collar for a grandpa version of Sophie with leather buttons and elbow patches. I was hoping to pick up some tips if someone had already drafted a shawl collar. Looks like I’ll have to wing it— and let you know how it goes of course.
Wow, what a versatile pattern! I think I like the grandpa cardigan and classic round neck cardigan looks best, myself. Now I’m going to go poke through all these blogs!! Thanks!
