Hi, I have a question about the Stichboard palette.

Hi, I made a pattern on the program but my question reguards finding the colors. For example where can I find "Stichboard Full 238-58."

Thank you and Happy Crafting

beadsNbooks,
Welcome! What a great name! Smile
The Stitchboard full palette isn't for a particular yarn or type of bead. We actually don't recommend using it for creating patterns, which is why we created a more generic designation, the Stitchboard basic palette. Those are more likely to be found in yarn, in particular, and also are good for beads. The colors are much more limited, but when we're talking limited palettes like yarn manufacturers generally have available, there's just no way to match up all or even most of the colors in the full palette to specific product colors.

Hi,

Thank you for replying. If I understand what your saying, the Stichboard palette doesn't connect to a specific color or item in real life. It's more of a guide to match against the products you have or can buy?

Thank you for the sugestion of using the basic palette. What kind of crafts would the full palette be for?

beadsNbooks,
You're so welcome!
Yes, you're correct! The full palette is just a guideline for choosing colors, but there's no official yarn or bead palette that specifically matches it. Smile
The full palette is better suited for areas where there are more colors available, such as with cross stitch.
Hope that helps! Smile
