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

AspenLeaf (great name!),

Okay, I'm admin, so I'll just say "Welcome!" and shut up.  WinkLaughing

I obviously have not had enough coffee. I'm just about to start the chart on my blanket. It's knitted. The chart reads the numbers from top down. Usually when knit you go bottom up. So do I turn it upside down and start. Or just start from bottom? Or do I start at top and go down. Some reason I'm having trouble figuring this out. Any help out there? Or do I just put on more coffee?


   My name is Debbie and I just joined the Stitchboard website. I retired early to care for my live-in mother who has COPD.  I have a husband, two dogs and a boom-er-rang son who lives with us more than not. 

   I do "a bit" of several things but nothing to perfection.  Right now I am cross-stitching stamped kitchen towel sets for Christmas gift giving.   People don't sew much these days and I thought it would be nice to give something that I spent time on.  

   I took a sewing class in junior-high and made a few outfits.  This year, I canned my first batch of Pickled Watermellon Rind Pickles!  In the past I have completed a couple of small-ish sized "counted cross stitch" pictures, two "stitch and stuff" rabbits and five sets of stamped kitchen Christmas towel sets.      I do some crocheting (afghans mostly), some straight-line beading like bracelets and necklaces, I attempted a quilted baby blanket, I did some tied-fleece blankets and other misc. light-weight craft dabbling. I am interested in learning more about all crafts in general.   I would love to get better at cross-stitching and crocheting.  Would love to learn to quilt, make soap, can food and play my harmonica, dulcimer and ukulele.  I am a jack-of-all crafts.... Master of none, kinda girl.   I am happy to receive instruction on improving my stitching skills so HELLO and nice to be here!    Smiley

Hi Could I be upgraded too please? :-)


Welcome!  Smile

PDF is not an accepted format for the freePatternWizard.  Currently, we support the following formats for members:
.gif, .jpg, .png, .bmp, .tif, .psd, .svg, .pcx, .wbmp

I'm a little perplexed, should have received an error message about the invalid format when you attempted to view your pattern.

When you do have a file with one of the above formats, please be aware that if you try to go from a lot of colors to very few - such as six - your results probably won't be very good.  Unless your original has a very small amount of colors, the system will attempt to match a lot of colors to only six, and your original image will get lost.  If you're looking to limit colors to what you might find in a yarn palette, I'd suggest using the Stitchboard Basic Palette, which will limit the colors to very basic ones.  While these aren't exact matches to available yarns, you'll have a far better chance of finding yarns in those colors than the Stitchboard Full Palette, with hundreds of colors that aren't available in yarns.
