Hi, I'm not sure if I'm understanding your question correctly, but at this time it's not possible to edit a pattern.  That said, if your pattern isn't terribly complex, could you perhaps change the colors in a graphics program before you run them through the freePatternWizard?

Another idea: the colors the freePatternWizard gives aren't cast in stone.  Meaning you can assign them to different colors in reality: change a blue to a green and a green to a purple.  If you're working with floss, beads, yarn or thread, it doesn't really make a difference; any color choices can be made as you're working on the piece.  And it's easiest to do if you generate your pattern as symbols rather than colors, because then you can assign the symbols to whatever colors you want, regardless of the color name showing in the pattern.  Smile

Melanie,

You're so right, the Pipsqueak was heavenly to work with. Kiss

The skeins are 3 1/2 oz. and each stripe is one ball (keep it simple).  Wink I bought an extra ball of the brown to do the edge, hat and booties. I still have at least half of that ball, so I may need to make various sizes of booties. Laughing

Yes, the crocodile blanket is done in Simply Soft. The pattern calls for Softee Baby, but you know I have trouble seeing the size 3 yarns, so this was my substitute. Unfortunately it was not a good idea for this pattern, the blanket is actually quite heavy. Unless it changes when washed, it's probably just going to be packed away as a keepsake.

It also requires a lot of yarn to make that crocodile blanket, 42oz. to make 35"x 35". Surprised

The Pipsqueak blanket is 36"x 48", I bought 21 oz. and had plenty left over to make other things.

So now my DIL's sister wants a crocodile baby blanket. I may try it with a different yarn, now I'm thinking that if I use a larger hook and something like RH Soft, maybe I can use less yarn and make it less heavy. Undecided

I posted one FREE knitting book for Kindle for today...grab it before it's gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Paula,

Hi, and welcome!  Smile

I don't know if this is close, but try this ripple pattern (there's a download link to a PDF, though if you're not registered, you'll be asked to do so):

This is actually for a baby afghan, but you can add more foundation chains and make it any size you want!  Smile
