Finally got patterns to work
April 14, 2015 at 2:31:36 PM
 

I have been using your site to try to get the pics i wanted converted to crochet patterns.  After many tries and a little brain work I did it.  Because I needed the pattern to be 245 stiches across and 181 rows down, it took me a while to get it just right.  Once I did, I then realized the patterns were in squares and when I were to start the stiching the pics would not be the same.  The stiches were rectangles and not squares and the pics would then be longer than I needed.  I then did the patterns in your beading section where the patterns are rectangle shaped.  Now I have them right and can begin to make the blankets.

Thanks for your patience with me and for all your help.  Will keep you informed of my progress.

Glad it's working for you!  Smile

Please be sure when creating a pattern that your choice is crochet, not cross stitch.  Cross stitch will be made up of square stitches.  Beading (loom or square stitch) is rectangular, the same as crochet...the only exception to that rule in crochet is Tunisian, but there are a few different factors that affect it, such as particular Tunisian stitch and gauge.  The standard crochet stitch is rectangular.

Sorry I'm new, where do you find the beading section?

Sherry,

If you're talking about in the program, it's section 2, and it's the first choice on the left.  Smile  If you're talking about here in the Community, the beading section is toward the top.
