Converting a Pattern to a Graph??
March 21, 2017 at 8:38:38 PM
 
Hi, I'm new here and not sure if I've looked around properly or maybe I'm the only that prefers my crochet patterns as a graph as I do better visually!!

Is this possible in here???

Thank you

Galia,

Welcome!  Smile

Actually, the freePatternWizard defaults to "Graph Only."  Make sure you're logged in, and when you get to #7, where it says, "Pattern or Word Chart:" make sure it's set to "Graph Only."

Hi Melaine,
I thinik I correctly did what you mentioned above, but it has changed the letters into sysmbols and colour coded it, but what I was after was converting a written crochet pattern into a graph with the crochet symbols, does the freePatternWizard do this?

Thank you
Galia

Galia,

No, the freePatternWizard doesn't take a written crochet pattern and turn it into a symbol pattern.  It might be something we'd consider for the future, so we can add it to the list of things to look into!  I don't know how much of a possibility it is on the technical end, so whether or not it would ultimately be a feature is dependent on how well it would work technically.  Smile

Hi Melaine,

Ok, thanks for getting back to me.  I can see how challenging it would be technically.

Silly question but do you know what other people do? I assume they use excel to plot the stictches perhaps?

Thanks,
Galia

Galia,

You're so welcome!  Smile

That's an excellent question!  I don't know the answer to that...I'm strictly a written pattern follower, have been meaning for a long time to learn to read symbol charts, but don't know how yet.  (It would make sense to learn, though, because there are sometimes intriguing looking charts from other countries available for free online!)  So perhaps you're right, others might use Excel or something like it to plot the stitches...it would make plenty of sense!  Smile
