Caroline,

Welcome! Smile

We currently don't have a version of the software that will edit a pattern; that feature is currently in development. In the meantime, the best thing to do is use a graphics program to edit your image before you send it in to the freePatternWizard. If you're on a PC, I can give you links to two free and very powerful graphics editing programs. I can't tell you how to use them, as I use an old, old program from, gasp, about 1998, but they do have tutorials and manuals available.

Also, when you edit the graphic, the best thing to do is to ensure a 1:1 relationship of pixels to stitches. This is for width only; for length the program does the calculating, so if you want to change that, you'll have to experiment and add borders to your image until you get it to the length you like. This will change when editing features become available, but the reason we didn't originally make the program work that way was because we were worried people would attempt to resize their images and would truncate or skew them.

Another thing to note is the image format of what you're using. If you're using a jpg, the image will already be "lossy," e.g., colors will bleed and the image won't be sharp. You do need a sharp image for the freePatternWizard, as giving it an image with a gazillion smudged colors will give you an unsatisfactory pattern, so usually a gif or png image would be optimal. However, you can't simply take a jpg and save it out as a gif or png, because if you do, you'll only get a lossy image with a gazillion smudged colors and an unsatisfactory pattern!

I apologize that I don't have a date for when the editing features will be available, so using a graphics program is the best way for now.

Caroline,

I just saw your message as it came up in the community highlights.  I know it is several months past since you posted it and I was wondering if you were able to get this coverted.  If not, I "might" be able to help.  At least I can try.  I found a way to edit photos like this that works most times, though not always & I don't have to use a photo editor like photo shop.  It's a bit time consuming but it works quite well.

If you are still interested in having this done, I can do this as a single crochet graphgan for you as I'm assuming that's what the sc stands for in your post.  

Just reply & I'll check for your message.

Kathy
