Welcome!  Smile

So happy to hear crochet helps you through troubling times.  Kiss  And it's wonderful how you can sell and donate the beautiful things you make!  Kiss  I'm so sorry you have to go through the terrible part of it, the treatments and travel, because you're right...cancer sucks.  Cry  It's so important to have an outlet during such trying times, and crochet is an excellent one.  Charleen is definitely a gem for teaching you!  Kiss

Awww, Dumpling...what an adorable nickname...glad he loves it!  Kiss

Oh, goodness, a 67 pound boxer...she sounds so cuddly!  Kiss

You're not boring at glad you decided to post!

Feel free to post pictures of your work we can all drool!  Wink

Love and lots of positive thoughts right back to you!  Kiss

You got it right, Melanie ... the first chart was the seed stitch and the second one was the moss stitch.

I've been contemplating the following ideas for additional follow up tutorials ...

1.  Simple lace pattern because of additional stitch types; if someone
     has a free one they would like to see done, I'm open to that.
2.  Decoding a user suggested [free] chart where users can practice
     interpreting charts with help when they get stuck
3.  Finish up by showing how charts make it REALLY easy to modify a
     pattern to suit your own needs. 

I'm open to any / all of these options as well as any other suggestions, comments, ideas, etc.


Its not sending it I've done it about 50 times 😢


I heart breaks for every one of those animals that probably came this close to snapping.  Cry  And someone took a picture, marked it "cute" and let others know it's perfectly acceptable to let your kid stand on a dog's face or do some other abusive thing like that.  Cry

I had no idea so many dog breeds were illegal there!  I'm not sure if any would be illegal everywhere here, but some might be illegal in certain areas.  I know there are issues people worry about with certain pitbulls.  Though the rescue people I know say they're actually a loving long as they're not brought up to fight.  OTOH, breeds used by gangs sound like a definite problem, since they would be trained to fight.  Cry  That's so sad for the poor dog, who doesn't know better.  Cry

I'm not surprised people don't know how to handle certain dog breeds.  I think most people say, "I'd love to get a dog...I know...I'll get a pitbull!"  And then they find they can't handle or train them.

That's a great disservice to the dog most of all, but also a great service to themselves, for taking in an animal they're so ill-prepared to handle.  Cry

Wow, only a few legal dog breeds there?!  Surprised  If that happened here, I assure you, people would be up in arms, screaming about it.

I agree, dogs are dogs, and to expect them to follow a law they neither know about nor have the capacity to understand in the slightest is crazy.  How sad that one will be put down for biting another dog.  Cry

Now, that's more good parenting.  Kiss  Which makes complete sense...whoever the dog bit is the one who caused the trouble.  And certainly not a reason to have the dog put down!

Hi, Janice.

If I understand you right, you'd like it if the program supported being able to turn the pdfs on the side (landscape).

If so, this is coming in a future update.  It will then support both portrait and landscape layouts.

So A3 in landscape would then have 420mm across instead of down.

"A3" paper is 297mm across x 420mm high.

In the meantime, there are a couple other paper sizes that come close to what you're talking about (rotated). 

"C3" is 458mm across x 324mm high.

"Tabloid" is 431mm across x 279mm high.

I do see that many of our freePatternWizard members are using the "Tabloid" format so maybe this is a reason.

Anyway, there will be an option to turn all formats on their side once I implement a landscape format.  Not sure yet if that'll be coming in the next batch of updates but I think it will.
