New! Caron One Pound, Caron Simply Soft and Herrschners 2-Ply Afghan palettes - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

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

Hi guys,
I have a workaround for anyone that wants to do this before you guys integrate it into the software.  My graph looks stretched, but by my calculation it will be perfect when I crochet it.

My stitch ratio is 0.875 rather than 1.  My photo was 415 pixels wide and 500 pixels tall.  I used GIMP (free from to alter my photo size.  500/0.875 = 571.  So I altered my photo to 415 pixels wide and 571 pixels tall.  I then used this stretched picture with the tunisian square crochet pattern maker.  I got a pattern that is 150 stitches wide by 207 stitches tall.  Without alteration, the pattern was 150 x 181.  207 * 0.875 = 181 so my math seems to check out.

It will be MONTHS before I have a finished pattern to double check, but I'm confident this will work.  My pattern looks funny - I'm sure when you guys get this done you will leave the picture the right size ad change the grid itself so it doesn't look funny.  But this will work for now!


We have three new yarn palettes available:
Caron One Pound
Caron Simply Soft
Herrschners 2-Ply Afghan

Thank you so much, BetwixtTheStitch! Kiss


Not bad at all!  Smile  Glad it's useful for someone, and it sounds like your nephew really does love good job!  Smile

How do I get the written to come out with 184x194? When I went to the wizard it come out as 184x338


It's so sweet that it's a generational thing, too...keeping that art alive!  Kiss  It's sad when art doesn't get handed down to younger generations.  What a wonderful gift for your nana to have handed to you!  Kiss
