Bead loom pattern creation - stitches to inches

I would like to create a bead loom pattern two inches across and two inches wide. How do I limit stitches to create that? Thank you.

taratears,

Welcome! Smile

With the current version of the software you can specify the number of stitches (beads) across, but what you can't do is specify the number of beads down; that will be addressed in a later build of the software, which is currently under development. The reason we didn't originally allow for vertical specifications was that we were worried people would either truncate or skew their patterns.

What you can do is key your image to be the correct number of pixels = beads for 2 inches across, then use trial and error to add borders to your image so you can get the vertical to the correct number of beads.
