New!  The Herrschner's Worsted Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  We've just added the palette for Deborah Norville Everyday Yarn!  If you knit and/or crochet, this is for you.  This is a beautiful yarn with a nice feel to it, a good alternative in worsted weight acrylic!  (Thank you again to BetwixtTheStitch!)

New!  The Red Heart Super Saver Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Smile

Welcome!  Smile

The freePatternWizard currently doesn't allow any settings for number of rows in the pattern, only the number of stitches across.  The reason for that is if you were able to set the number of rows as you wish, your pattern would most likely turn out skewed, and those results would be undesirable.

One solution would be, as you mentioned, adding solid colors.  Ultimately, we'll be offering functions that will allow more flexibility for setting pattern rows, as well as stitches across, but for now, the best way to remedy a pattern that isn't long enough is to do something along the lines of adding solid colors.

Hope that helps!  Smile

Thank you, Terry, for keeping everyone up to date as well as all of the back end stuff you do ... greatly appreciated!


Thanks!  This is primarily a major infrastructure upgrade so initially I'm really, really hoping the first day you won't see any differences. Smile  Like I say, this opens it up for all the updates we plan to do. 

I just finished transferring 52 websites from our current to the new hardware and next need to update all kinds of configuration settings.  We're hoping to test the new configuration tomorrow and get it close to bringing it live tomorrow or Saturday.  I'll probably still need to bring down the current websites just before making it all live so I can transfer the most recent databases and files so we don't lose anybody.  I'm pretty sure that this might take as long as 15-20 minutes, during which time you'll see a simple page telling you to come back soon.

But again, I'm crossing my fingers that everything will look the same when we first bring it live. 



You're very welcome!  Smile

We've been talking for some time about making other brands available in the freePatternWizard.  Smile  I live in a somewhat small town, as well, and there are only two places to get yarn, a craft store and a department store.  So the choices are very, very limited.  And you're right, Red Heart Super Saver appears to be far easier to find than many other brands/types of yarn.  Smile

Thank you for the suggestion!  Smile  We may need to move it up in priority, particularly if we're going to lose the Lion Brand Wool Ease.

Hi all thanks for letting me join. New to this so i may ask stupid questions. Bear with me please. Have a good day all
