The finished product doesn't look like the picture. I am trying to create a crochet afghan using herrschners worsted. I chose the colors I wanted to use, but the download has colors everywhere when they should form a bargello type pattern. Please help. Thanks Debbie

There are a lot of variables that can cause this.

It sounds like you chose "I will choose my colors" so it should only choose those colors.  I think Herrschners Worsted has 57 colors and is a bit limited.

Another thing that causes stray colors is if the original image is a .jpg.  It would be best to send it a very small .gif image with limited colors.

You may also want to try turning on Antialias in section 8.  Also adjusting brightness and contrast might help.

These are some ideas that come to mind.

In December I'll be working on a new version that includes the ability to fine-tune the pattern manually before printing it out.  I'm not sure yet whether this new version will be available yet then but I'm doing testing on it now.
