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

Have you checked out Kreinik?
I'm not sure how their products measure up to what you're actually looking for, but whenever I think of filament, Kreinik is the go-to. Kiss
This page has their blending filaments and there is a "pearl" filament on this list; it may even be the same filament that was supposed to be in the kit, since Kreinik has been around for decades:
Hope that helps! Kiss

Awesome...looking forward to seeing what you make! Kiss

I have no problem creating a cross-stitch pattern, but cannot see how to save it. What am I missing??

Hi, All.I'm at the tail end of testing about 27 fixes but thought I'd start turning on a few additions/corrections.This version now shows the yarn manufacturer name on the word chart cover sheets.Before this it always showed "Palette used: Stitchboard Word Chart" but now shows the manufacturer.I hope to finish the testing on the next group of updates very soon.Terry

Hi, Everyone,

Since we upgraded the site to a secure server (HTTPS:) back in April, some users have been experiencing periodic problems getting their pdf charts on the screen.

This problem shows up both in IOS and Android devices.

In testing I found that there's no single solution.  Some devices work no matter what (like my iPhone).  Other require you change the pdf format setting in section 7 of the freePatternWizard.

For those IOS device users having pdf viewing problems, I just re-enabled a "screen" option in section 7 that helps.

The problem is that there's no common solution to the pdf viewing problem.  Users with an iPad using a certain version of IOS and browser might have no problem.  Those with a slightly different version of browser on the same device might have a problem.  Some with a different IOS version with the same browser version might or might not have a problem.  Again, they come and go depending on the combination of device, operating system version, and broswer version.

SO, if you have a problem getting a pdf chart (like all you see is a bunch of garbage text on the screen or get a download failed message), try another setting in section 7.  There are currently 3 options — Download pattern, Show /pdf pattern on screen, and Email pattern to myself.  If you have a problem with one setting, try another.

Some versions of operating systems and browser versions are more sensitive to downloading pdf files from a secure server.

I'll eventually be adding a 4th option that should offer a universal fix but for now most users should find an option that works by trying the different pdf settings in section 7.
