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!)

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

Thank you, and I agree, Tlewis...I'm sure we're in for a treat! Smile

Welcome! Smile Excellent question!
I'm sorry to say we have no control over the patterns people create. Whether or not they share them on our own site, if they choose to make color patterns instead of symbol only or color and symbol patterns, too many times the colors can be much too close. We would prefer it if patterns were created with something other than full colors unless they contain only unique colors, but it's out of our control, especially if they choose to post those patterns for download somewhere.
Unfortunately, unless you have an original image, the freePatternWizard can't take an already-made pattern and convert it back to an original image, in order to change it to symbols.
As for original patterns, technically, they're not original patterns. They're original images from which people have chosen to make patterns, which is why I mentioned original images above. What they do to make a pattern *is* the original pattern, even if it's full color with 25 shades of blue. Frown
We can (and do) make recommendations on how to get readable patterns, but we don't force people to follow our recommendations.
I wish I had a better answer for you. Normally, I'd say to contact the designer. Unfortunately, so much circulates on Pinterest, it can be next to impossible to track down a designer, who is the person who really should be creating readable patterns in the first place.

If I'm understanding your question correctly, that's the case...your turning chain does not count as a stitch; only your actual stitches count.

Ok Thank you. I just really don't know what type this is so, I was just wondering if this stitch has a name.

Thank so much. Let me see if that helps. I was trying to do a Elsa from frozen graph so that I can do one for my daughter for christmas and just not working.
