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

Welcome! Great name! Smile
Any shrinking of an image is best done beforehand. Since the freePatternWizard isn't a graphics program, it won't understand taking a large image and shrinking it down. It's best to shrink your image with a graphics program, to where the number of pixels = the number of stitches you want. (You can't designate the number of rows at this time. This will be changed in the future, but originally we were afraid people would skew or truncate their patterns to get them to a certain height.) Once you've altered your image to the width and approximate height you want, that's when you'd want to upload it to the freePatternWizard. Smile

I am using macOS Sierra Version 10.12.6.  The specific problem I am having is the colors and the size.  The picture has 2 Dachshunds that are black on top of a Heart in the middle that is red and the background is Gray.  When I select the colors black, red and gray it is to dark. the black and red are too dark to read.  If I select the option for color matching it is too dark.  Can you help me with selecting the right colors?  

I have been able to get the Ansi D to work.  But there is a 1.5 inch margin on each side.  I would like to have it with less margin .  

If I could just get the colors so I can read them I can enlarge the pattern on my printer.  

I can send you the picture if you want so you can see what I am trying to work with.  

Thank you Neva 

I have made several of these entrelac tunisian afghan.  Looking for a pattern that turns out looking like the knitted pattern.    Have to look up pics of this and see what I mean.  Knitted pattern looks like this;

I'm not a lefty, so I'm not sure how to answer your question.  It would most likely depend on how you normally work.  Do you usually reverse patterns to work on them, or do you leave them as is?  So that's why I would say it would depend on whether your normal patterns tend to be reversed when you work them from charts.  If you use those as a guideline, in theory, it should work the same way with any chart.  Smile

Welcome!  Smile

What a lovely legacy to give to your family!
