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!)

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

You're very welcome! Smile


You're very welcome!  Kiss

Glad you have a good program to work with!  Let me caution you,'s not how long the image is in the finished pattern that's important.  It's important how many beads across you want the image to be (e.g., stitches) and then it's important to know how many rows vertically (though you'll have to tweak that in your graphics program for this version of the software).  The image you print in your finished pattern is probably going to be far different from the size of the finished beadwork, so measuring the image you get from the freePatternWizard is going to be unhelpful.

If you're not sure how many beads you'll need, you can always make a sample piece and decide based on that how many beads will meet your purposes for the particular cuff bracelet you want to make.

For example, you may decide you want your bracelet pattern to be 30 beads wide.  That would mean you'd first make your image 30 pixels wide in a graphics program.  If that looks good to you, then you'd know that's the measurement you can work with to make your bracelet the right size.  Smile

I know there are people making framed pictures/wall hangings; it really depends on your original image.  If you're using a photograph with a lot of colors and things going on, it may be unsuitable for a cuff bracelet.  Remember, you have to minimize it in a program first, so see how you like it then; if it doesn't reduce too small, then it will be fine!

It's likely that anyone who does make a cuff bracelet pattern using the freePatternWizard is either using artwork, rather than photos, or pieces of photos.  Basically, anything that will reduce well or is small enough to start with.  Smile


Welcome!  Smile

At this time we don't have a way of converting a graph that wasn't made with the freePatternWizard to a written pattern.  Currently, if you create a crochet or illusion knitting graph with the freePatternWizard, you can make a word chart, so if you still have your original image, perhaps you'd be best off running it through the freePatternWizard to get your new graph and word chart.  Then you can disregard your current chart.


No worries, a few days won't hurt anyone, so relax!


I'm so glad, and thank you for letting me know that it works for you!  Smile

When I first tried picking up and knitting it was so daunting...after trying, I couldn't believe how easy it actually was (but don't tell anyone, so they'll think you've done something truly outstanding Wink).
