Until the new version is made available there are a few things you can do to help.  You can try one or more of the following:

  1. Try to use a .GIF image with limited colors.  .JPG images are compressed and cause a lot of stray pixels.
  2. In Section 8, turn on Stray Pixel Cleanup by checking the box and select "light", "medium", or "heavy"
  3. In Section 8, try turning "Color Sensitivity" up to a higher number
  4. In Section 5b, select the colors you want to use
  5. In Section 5c, give it a number of colors to use

A long-awaited version is coming that will allow final editing of the pattern before printing it out.  I'm not sure yet when it'll go live but I'm working through a few more issues with it.

Let me know if this helps or not.
