New! Caron One Pound, Caron Simply Soft and Herrschners 2-Ply Afghan palettes - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  The Herrschner's Worsted Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  We've just added the palette for Deborah Norville Everyday Yarn!  If you knit and/or crochet, this is for you.  This is a beautiful yarn with a nice feel to it, a good alternative in worsted weight acrylic!  (Thank you again to BetwixtTheStitch!)

New!  The Red Heart Super Saver Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Laughing

I just added support for those who want to use .webp image files.

There are a few different sub-formats within this image configuration so currently you may need to make adjustments to section 7 to get better patterns from webp images.

Currently line drawing .webp images will work better than photos but it really depends on how the image background was saved in the program that created your image.

If you can't get a good pattern, try using a photo editor to load the image and save it in a .png or .jpg format and use that new image.

I'll be making a few adjustments in the future to the better support all the various sub-formats but for now we have basic support.

Angie,
Welcome! Smile
The size depends on which craft you're doing and other factors.
If you're working in cross stitch, it depends on the size of your fabric.
If you're working in crochet or knitting, that depends on your gauge. For that, you must make a swatch to determine how many stitches and rows you're getting per inch. That's something no one can determine but you. Kiss Everyone's swatch will be different, depending on your needle or hook size, the fiber you'll be using and how tight or loose your tension is.
This is why we can't give a blanket answer and the reason there's no information in the pattern about that, because it's different from person to person, with everyone's guages being so unique. Kiss


Alli,
Welcome! Smile So glad you found us - it's so nice to meet you, too! Kiss
How cool that your aunt taught you to cross stitch. Kiss It's really wonderful when crafts get handed down through the generations. Kiss


Alright thank you for this information. Yes, I would love to test the c2c feature out. I think that would be great Smiley Thank you again for all of the help and answering my questions. 

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but I did find two YouTube videos that show how to make a camouflage pattern in general:

Also, here's a WikiHow tutorial on hand drawing camouflage:

There are others, but some require the use of various programs, so I'm hoping these will help give you a very basic tutorial to create a pattern.  Smile
