Chewbacca pattern
February 11, 2021 at 2:33:55 PM
 
I wanted to convert what I believe to ne a cross stitch pattern of Chewbacca into a knitting chart.  Is that possible in Stitchboard?  If so, how would I go about it?  TYIA

Ksulliv,
Welcome! Smile
I'm sorry to say turning a pattern into a different type of pattern isn't an option. The freePatternWizard is only set up to make a pattern from an image. To use a chart would actually confuse it, because it's not able to recognize symbols, just spit them out.
If it's not a super huge pattern, perhaps the pattern with regular rectangular stitches instead of square could be done without skewing it?

Your suggestion may work.  I am totally new at this, can you direct me in any way?  Thank you for your help.

Ksulliv,
Sorry, I think I said that wrong! Embarassed
What I meant is that if it's a small enough piece, you might be able to get away with knitting it as is, even though your stitches will be rectangular while the cross stitch chart has square stitches.
But over a larger piece it will become more obvious. So it depends on how large your chart is, and then there's no rule of how big is too big. It's unfortunately just plain old trial and error. Frown
A Chewbacca pattern would be more difficult than, say, something abstract, because if it's abstract you wouldn't notice the skewing. But with something as recognizable as Chewbacca, that's hard to predict. Frown
