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!  Laughing

No worries, we do have a feature in development to customize printing.  Smile  In the meantime, have you tried any of the other paper size options?  Even though you're not technically printing to other sizes, it may minimize your pattern enough to give you a smaller number of pages.

Also, keep in mind that if your pattern is printing to 20 pages, printing it all on one page, if we had that option available at this time, could make it impossibly tiny to read.


Welcome!  Smile

It's excellent how you did a gauge swatch before you started...kudos!  Gauge swatches are so important!

We allow a maximum of 150 stitches across for our members, though there are nominally priced options to give you more stitches across, either 300 or 500, depending on your needs.  We call these Premier features.  At this time 300 stitches across has a low introductory price of $2.99 for a full year and 500 stitches across has a low introductory price of $4.99 for a full year.  (You don't have to sign up for both if you're interested in 500 stitches, as 300 is included in the 500.)

You can subscribe to Premier features here:

As for pattern length, at this time the freePatternWizard doesn't allow you to set the length of a pattern.  This is a feature we currently have in development.  Originally we didn't allow it because we were worried people would try to make patterns that were terribly out of proportion by giving the length either a too short or too long dimension, where their patterns would either have been too wide or too elongated.

Since we don't know exactly when this feature will be available (we do as much testing as possible before making a feature live), if the length isn't what you want, at this time my best suggestion would be to add borders to your original image so you can get the length you want.  If you don't have a graphics program and are using Windows, I can suggest two very powerful - and free! - programs that are available for download.  Smile  I can't tell you how to use them (because I use a graphics program from, gulp, 1998 Embarassed), but they're very popular and are reputed to be excellent (and great for the price!).

Hello im new to the sight and i am a craft addict i have a big problem lol i was wondering how i could possi ly get larger graphs as well i use it for afgans and rugs that i make im working on snow white and dopey right now and have done elv u s presley but would like them larger

I would love to love to be bumped up to the premium account. I have been dying to make a bigger blanket other than 150 stitches!!!

I posted five FREE crochet patterns for Kindle for today...grab them before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)
