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

If you're creating a pattern in the freePatternWizard, in #7 there's a selection, "Pattern or Word Chart" where you can choose "Graph Only," "Word Chart Only" or "Graph and Word Chart." That's where you can select one or the other or both. If you're talking about a finished pattern that you've found somewhere which exists only as a graph, then the freePatternWizard can't make a word graph from that.


I finally got a chance to digest what you wrote and look at the images you sent.

Both images are more than 4 colors.  Here's what one eye looks like when enlarged in Photoshop:

This is the larger mage.

The smaller one enlarged looks like this:

The additional colors would have been introduced somewhere on your end.  It might have been done when saving the image.  It almost always would also happen when changing the size of an image.  If you can, try enlarging the smaller image you sent and see if you get the same thing.  I also looked at the larger image and see the same thing.

The PatternWizard is sensitive to all these different shades/colors and along some lines thinks there are green pixels where you want blue.  You can see in the image above that the bottom edge of the eye looks like it has green in there.

SO, you may want to see if you have a sharper image that doesn't have the shades when enlarged.  Regular line art has sharp lines and you won't need to adjust the sharpness.

Let me also look at it again tomorrow and adjust the image to true 4 colors.  I can send that to you to try again.

As for the pdf issue you saw, let me look into it.  The pdf I created looked fine.  I can tell you that the next version that will be enabled soon has a couple changes to the pdf creation code to make it more compatible with different versions of pdf viewing software.

If the image I create and send solves your color problem (which I think it will) and you still have pdf issues, you can let me know and I'll let you try the upcoming version to see if it's a pdf viewing compatibility issue that gets fixed with the update.

Not sure what time I'll send the image but I will at some point tomorrow (well, actually later today Laughing).


Thank You so very much!

Hi, I added a 4th pattern to the mall Thursday & still await its activation so that it shows up there. Any problem with it? My other 3 were activated faster, just wondering if everything's OK with it.

Thought I'd share some pics.  Couldn't get far enough away to get it all in, so also broke down into left, center & right sections.

Have updated since, but guess I didn't take pictures.
