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

There are a couple of issues here.  First, you need to make a gauge swatch if you haven't already.  Your stitch type and hook size aren't all you need in order to determine the size of your finished piece.  Your fiber and tension also are factors.  If I were to work the same stitch with the same hook and same fiber, I'd still probably end up with a very different gauge from you, as gauge is different from person to person, since tension is different from person to person.

Your swatch will tell you if your stitch is square or rectangular.  If your stitch is square, you would choose "Tunisian Square" in #3.  If it's rectangular, then you would need to choose "Tunisian Horizontal" or "Tunisian Vertical," depending on the orientation of your stitches.

If your stitches in your gauge are square, then choosing "Tunisian Square" would give you a square pattern if your image is exactly square.

If your stitches in your gauge are rectangular, either vertically or horizontally, your pattern is unlikely to be perfectly square.  Were you to use a square representational stitch for that rectangular stitch, your pattern might look square, but it would be skewed.

If both your gauge and image aren't square, there are ways to work it out mathematically to ensure your pattern is square to your gauge; however, keep in mind that at this point you can only set your stitch width, not how many rows you want for the length of your pattern as made from your image.  We do have a feature in development that allows you to do that, but at the moment it's still in testing and isn't available.

Hi, Everyone!

Thanks to lillizer who reported a problem with Crochet charts when an image does not contain white and/or black.  The freePatternWizard sometimes introduced an additional color in the chart as either a box with a dot in the middle or a box with a black square in it.  This symbol was not included in the key on the first page of the pdf and was basically just very confusing.

I just fixed this bug.

The problem happened in Crochet charts, Knitting charts, Cross Stitch patterns, and Crochet word charts!

The stray symbol is now gone and the proper one is shown.

Thanks again, lillizer.

I'm still working on bringing a few new features and 2 more bug fixes, then will be working on bringing the next new major version of software (v4.0.0) with Major new features.



I'm not sure if 2 different colors would work on this project.. Maybe if I made it grey/black...
But I am thinking of a dusty rose color thingy.. I could combine it with some kind of white/off-white/cream color.. BUT.. I'm not good with wearing white in any shape o.O I simply cannot keep it clean... :p
First time the dogs jumps me with mud on the paws, it will be ruined.. It's easier with some kind of color, because mud/dust what ever have e better tendency to wash out.. It doesn't do that in whites.. And sice I won't/can't bleach wool.. Well.. :p 

I'll figure something out.. Cheesy YAY...


(BTW - I think I might have found a place where they sell 'electric blue' yarns.. Both cotton and wool, gotta go chech it out someday Cheesy )

Can I upgrade to please
