Hi, and welcome!  Smile

Filet crochet isn't an option at the moment, which is why it can't be selected.  It will become available at a later date.  Smile

I posted one FREE jewelry 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.)

Here's the circle (you must join to see posts):


I don't trust the colors on the moniter either. Undecided That rarely pans out.

Here's hoping you find something wonderful at a good price. Kiss

We've had a few questions regarding discontinued bead colors and incorrect sample DMC colors so I figured I'd formally request users to let us know what we need to change or remove to keep the palettes up-to-date.

If you know of a bead number in one of the freePatternWizard palettes that's no longer available, please let us know so we can remove it.

Along this line, if you know of a color that's displaying incorrectly in the sample given by the patternWizard, let us know.  We generally got all of the colors directly from the various manufacturers and distributors but have never guaranteed them to be exact. 

So if you know of any sample colors that the program shows incorrectly, please let us know here so we can research it and make the necessary changes.

The palette changes are very easy for us to make so they'll be made very quickly once we obtain new information.

As always, thanks for any input!


Oh, so true...isn't frogging essential for experimenting/creating?!  LaughingFrown  Sigh.

I agree...I'm not sure I'll like it, either, but I must try it!  Laughing

Tonight I did some experimenting with crochet, particularly the other set of hooks I just purchased.  Curiously, the larger the hook, the easier the other hook design is to work with, whereas the smaller the hook, that other design does not work for me at all (e.g., the steel hooks, mostly)!

The only caveat to the larger hook thing is working TKS (and other Tunisian stitches, I assume).  Then the brand I've been using is fine.  I think the small steel hooks are trouble for me because the shape of the hook greatly affects the stitching with those.
