Convert from graph to written?
October 4, 2016 at 8:13:05 PM
 
So, I have a graph pattern I purchased about a year ago off of etsy. It's an excel document. I printed it, but I am absolutely horrible at remembering my counts and stitches, and having to stop every few lines to write out the next few lines, is too much in the very limited time I have in my day to crochet. I have been trying to finish this project for almost a year and I only have 10 rows of 200 done. i can crochet so much faster if it is written, but taking the time to count it and write it out is difficult. Is there a way I can convert it to written form?
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Lizzi,

Welcome!  Smile

Goodness, I can't imagine working off of an Excel spreadsheet!  Like you found, my counts and stitches would likewise be a mess.  Frown

I can make a suggestion that we add conversions from Excel spreadsheets to word charts to the freePatternWizard, but the final determination would have to be made by our programmer as to whether or not this is possible.  Smile

Hi.

We've had other requests to support Excel spreadsheets.

My thought is to add the ability to import (read) and export (write) .csv files.

The .csv files are comma-delimited files that can be read or written by a number of spreadsheet programs, including Excel.

We'll begin discussing what would be best and I do expect to add this once the new version of software is up and running.

In the meantime, feel free to give us feedback, requests, and suggestions!
