That sounds gorgeous! Kiss

You know I don't generally care to work with the variegated yarns, but I'm now curious about how the scarf pattern I'm working on would look in a variegated. Wink

Hi, Karen and thanks for asking.

First, I'm more technical than being a crochet expert.  I can tell you a few related things regarding the freePatternWizard since I wrote the program.

The patternWizard has settings that will allow you to vary the number of stitches in section 6. There you can select the number of stitches across if you want.  If you choose the second option, you can enter the stitch count across manually and the system will enlarge or reduce the image so it creates a chart with the given count.  So, for example, the chart could be set to use 10 stitches across if you wanted.  Or as many as 300.

Regarding the paper size, I'm not sure exactly how many stitches would fit across on an A3 sheet.  We've had many discussions here about final stitched items vs. the number of stitches across on a crochet pattern/chart.  It relates to the needle size, fibre, and tension so there's no real single answer. For what its worth, a future update to the patternWizard will allow many different paper sizes... not just the American Legal size.  A new version will support up to A0 and down to A8 (and do B, C, and others) but I have yet to determine the limits I'll set up regarding maximum number of stitches across.  I'll have to raise the limits for the larger paper sizes.

So those are my technical comments but I have a feeling this may not fully answer your questions.  I have a feeling Melanie may also answer with her ideas.


I just added some additional error checking to kick out more incompatible images.  The system does its best to adapt to many image formats but has problems with some images.

It also attempts to catch any possible malicious code which might be added to an image.

It might be a bit more sensitive and give an 'incompatible image' error a bit more but hopefully not.  If it gets out of hand, I'll check into it.

This version also fixes some bugs.

As always, lots of new features and fixes to come!


You're very welcome!  Smile

LOL, sigh, isn't that always the problem of writing something up to sell...the kinks...  Tongue Out

I am using iPad and somehow I could not choose picture on section 1. The "choose file" button is in grey and when I try to click on the button, it doesn't work. Help!
