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

The heaviness (is that even a word?) depends on the size of the blanket..
I have only made baby blankets, and they are a bit heavy, but I actually like the weight of it.. I am currently making a 110x180cm blanket for my friends 3 year old, and it's not too heavy.. He could easily carry it around..

I made a blue zig-zag blanket for my youngest boy, and it's still as pretty as when I made it, except for the colors that have worn a bit off (but the blanket has been used for 3 years now, so it is fair enough that it has had some color loss)..

I wash and try it, with no problems at all.. I would maybe wash and dry the yarn BEFORE using it, because it can shrink a bit when dried in a machine..

You are more than welcome to ask questions..

Kind Regards


Ha, just as I thought!  Kiss


Ugh, it's the same here...nurses are so underpaid for all of the work they do.  Cry  It's shameful that those in charge think nothing of helping themselves to ever more money, while everyone else toils for almost nothing.  Yell


Welcome!  Smile  So glad you found us!

To answer your questions:
1) If you're looking for a sort of "paint" program to design cross stitch patterns, I know there are several available, but I would be remiss in recommending one over another as I have no experience with them, I'm sorry to say.

2) In your finished pattern, under "Size(s)," it will show the sizes of the finished item in 14, 16 and 18 count.  In order to determine how large your cloth should be cut, you should add about 3 inches on each side to that measurement, or 6 inches for the horizontal and 6 inches for the vertical measurement.  That will give you enough extra fabric for framing.  Smile

Hi.  firstly, thank you for a wonderful site. I was pleasantly surprised when my son e-mailed me the link.

I love making baby afghans and have seen some awazing work in filet crochet, which I would like to do.   The problem - my picture looses all form when I choose the stitches required.  I want blocks of 15 x 15 cm.

Can you help, please?

Thank you
