rows in the pattern creator
May 21, 2020 at 10:42:24 AM
I created a crochet pattern from a picture of a cat, but it created way too many rows. Is there a way to identify how many rows that you want it to have and not just stitches?

Look at that smile! (Photo guaranteed unretouched)

Welcome! Smile
I'm sorry to say that capability isn't available at this time. Originally, the freePatternWizard was designed to figure out the rows automatically because we were afraid people were going to truncate or skew their patterns and we wanted to preserve the correct aspect ratio.
This will be addressed in a future issue (unfortunately, I don't have a date as to when that will be available), so for now the only way of compensating is to add borders to your original image on the left and the right and then keep working with it until the dimensions are as you want. I apologize; I know this isn't pretty or a great solution, but until the capability is available to designate the number of rows, that's the best way to get to the dimensions you want.
And...a cat? Oooh, do tell! Not that I love cats or anything (besotted). Wink
