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! Smile

We recommend that you actually don't use the Stitchboard Full Palette. The reason is it was never meant for yarn colors at all. Unfortunately, yarn manufacturers will likely never make a lot of colors, because then they'd get stuck with many that wouldn't sell well. It's sad for knitters and crocheters, but that's how it works, unfortunately. Frown The Full Palette was mainly meant for offbeat embroidery floss colors and bead palettes, which have hundreds of colors and not only tens of colors.

Instead, we do recommend using the Stitchboard Basic Palette, as many of these will translate better to basic yarn manufacturers' palettes. There is a dearth of yarn color choices out there, so even in those palettes many colors aren't represented, but you'll be able to match more of them than with the Stitchboard Full Palette, which will be next to impossible to match for most of the colors.

I'm sorry to say there's no easy answer, but unless manufacturers someday really want to offer a large variety of colors, the Basic Palette is the better choice for patterns.

We've had a few questions regarding how the subscriptions work for the Premier features.  When we set things up we kept in mind how we would like to be treated.  So here's how it all works.

First, the majority of the freePatternWizard is and will always be totally free.  And I'll continue to add new free features, enhance those already in place, and support them.  We have a list of free features coming but don't publicize them in advance.

Regarding the subscriptions, we have begin charging a nominal amount for some more enhanced features.  These features are generally those that cost us in the way of added CPU time and additional memory requirements.  To offset this we have created the Premium area.

We tried to come up with a crazy-low amount (in our opinion) to charge.  We call them introductory prices because they might go up in the future but there are no plans right now.  Again we spent a long time thinking about the best way we would like to be treated.

For now, we charge by the year.  Only $4.99 per feature for a whole year access.  We realize that some features will not be of interest.  If you're a knitter, you might not be interested in beading enhanced features.  And vice versa.  So we just went the à la carte way so you can pick those Premium features and pay $4.99 each.  BUT, we put in a cap, so at this time you'll never pay more than $19.95.  If you want every feature that's available today, next week, next month, for the entire year, you can pay $19.95 and automatically be subscribed to everything for the whole year.

On top of that, but just to be fair, if you subscribe to one or more $4.99 features today, and want to change to a subscription of all features, and do it within a month, you'll get credit for what you've already spent.

Again, the charges are not because we want to nickel and dime people, but more to cover added server expenses for adding more advanced features.

For those interested, the subscription page is here, has information about each feature, and will process your payments through PayPal.  Once payment is made, the system automatically sets you up so you immediately have access to the new feature(s) with no waiting.  You'll also get approved to post comments, questions and suggestions in the Community Premier area.

If you have questions, feel free to ask here.  Thanks, and have fun!


Absolutely gorgeous!
