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

The center mark is indicated by two triangular arrows, one in the top margin on the page in question, pointing down, and the other pointing to the right, which will be located in the left-hand margin of the page where the center of the pattern is.
Hope that helps! Smile


You're so welcome! And thank you kindly for your donation! Kiss

We're very happy to know this works for you. Smile And of course word patterns are important...I also much prefer them. With graphs, I can just about start seeing spots after looking at them too long! Wink It's soooo much easier to read a word chart.

Hope you had a great holiday!


We've tested this quite thoroughly, so please do rerun your pattern.  Smile  If you do find any issues, feel free to let us know!


Welcome!  Smile

The graphs the freePatternWizard creates aren't meant for C2C afghans, so we can't guarantee the results.  C2C is in the plans, but no idea when.

Since you're using C2C instead of single crochet (a.k.a. double crochet if you're in the UK), you may notice your pattern is skewed, as single crochet stitches aren't actually square.  They're more rectangular, so the patterns created are keyed to be rectangular.  C2C is more square than rectangular, so it's possible your pattern will distort for that reason.

I've worked C2C patterns before, and the time to decrease is when you reach the 150 square mark; you'll have to check your pattern for which side that is.  Once you do, then you'll continue increasing the other edge until it reaches 235 squares, then that will be decreased until you ultimately end up at the opposite corner from where you started, with one square left.  Smile

I posted four* FREE knitting patterns for Kindle for today...grab 'em before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Here's the circle (you must join to see posts):

* There are four books for today, two of which are new!
