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!  Laughing

I love to make doll clothing and ami, too! Kiss What I especially love about doll clothing is it takes a LOT less time than making something for a person. Laughing
And dolls never fuss that something is a color they don't like, too large or too small or a style they don't like. Laughing

How do I figure out the stitch count using a corner to corner pattern?

Hi, Isabelle.

I just did three tests.  1. Showing the .pdf on the screen,  2. Downloading the .pdf pattern, and 3. Having it email the .pdf pattern to myself.  All three worked fine on my laptop.  I also just downloaded and emailed a .pdf chart using my iPhone and they worked too.  So the basic functions are working.

BUT, one of the great "joys" Frown of programming and developing software for internet use (which I've been doing for some 20 years) is that there are always companies upgrading device software versions, and changing what and how they support various functions.  So things that work today might not work tomorrow after an upgrade.  Or if I make a change on our end, all of a sudden something might not work on 1%, 10%, 50%, or 100% of the users' browsers on certain devices.

Back on March 24 I moved the entire site over to our secure server because that's how the internet is headed.  Security is super-important!

In doing some research, I do see some versions of the standard Android browser have a problem downloading .pdfs from a secure website.  This is not a problem on our end but just something that Google didn't work through in their browser.  I did also see that people who then used a different browser on the same device were able to download just fine.  I'm guessing there are other browser versions on some other devices that may also have an issue.

What's the solution?

1. You can have it email the pattern to yourself (set in the freePatternWizard section 7).
2. Change your browser.
3. Upgrade your browser.
4. Help me offer work-arounds.

Number 4 above would probably be the better solution in many cases.  All this would take is to have one or more users who have a problem downloading a .pdf chart give me some information so I can thoroughly research the cause.  I had to do a similar thing when Microsoft caused a problem with one version of one of their browsers.

So if anyone reading this would be interested in helping, I can probably come up with a fix in a short period of time.  Just let me know.



I am from London, Ontario and share my home with 3 cats, 1 dog and a very understanding fiance. He could even be considered an enabler as he usually offers to go yarn shopping with me. (At least I don't have to sneak purchases in!)

I knit and crochet and for the past couple of years have worked towards giving gifts that are primarly hand-made. I have been working on this Christmas' presents since January and am full steam ahead... and like every other year, am pretty convinced that my gifts won't totally suck. bwahahahaha. 

I decided to try out the site because I figured, "it's been around for forever so it has to be good" 

I look forward to getting to know people, seeing and sharing our works!
