Backstitching confusion
January 9, 2019 at 12:05:25 AM

I have been cross stitching for a good 20 or so years, mostly from kits with the occasional branching out into patterns from magazines.  I just tried creating my own pattern a few days ago and I'm a tad confused.

The pattern turned out fine, but I just realised that I didn't add any backstitching to it.  Is it actually possible to add backstitching in the free pattern wizard or not?  I can freestitch it if I need to, if I decide that it needs stitching once I've actually done the pattern.  It would be interesting to know if it was possible though.  It's my first pattern that I've created myself so I don't yet know all the ins and outs of using the pattern wizard.

Welcome! Smile
While backstitching is on our list of features for a future version of the freePatternWizard, it's not available with the current version.
