Hello All, I pray that my words find all of you and your families in good health and spirit.

I am from Texas and new to the world of yarn arts and crafts. I have only been crocheting for about 3 months now, love it. I just signed up to try my hand at gaining more knowledge and improving my skill set, so take it easy on me, for asking a ton of questions.

My first question: how do I get the pattern creator to generate a crochet pattern with symbols and instructions using a image. My fist attempts have been unsuccessful.

Welcome!  Smile

Your pattern's height is dependent on the width of your pattern.  When you make a pattern, it takes your designated setting for the width and then calculates the height.  The reason you can't change that number is because it would skew the pattern.  If you tried to make the pattern higher than it should be according to its aspect ratio, your image would look too elongated and you probably wouldn't like it.  If you instead tried to make the pattern shorter than it should be according to its aspect ratio, your image would be too wide.

This is why the system automatically adjusts for your photo or artwork's aspect ratio.  Because skewing it wider or longer would be unappealing to most...unless someone was trying to purposely stretch an image one way or another, and in that case, it would probably be better done through graphics first, to obtain the exact desired result.

Hope that helps!  Smile

I have been trying for a few days to make a filet chart. It will not let me select the filet option.

Welcome, Cheri!  Smiley

Ooh, I'd love to hear more about your work, especially the beaded tapestries!  How large are they, and what do you do with them once they're finished?  Do you frame them and put them up on the wall?

Please feel free to post pics of your work...I love to drool!  Smiley
