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!  Smile

What Sherry said is spot on...a word chart is so much easier to use than an actual chart.  There are no problems trying to view blocks, and you can actually generate your pattern in both word and conventional charts for the rows where you do want to follow a conventional non-word chart, e.g., where you can see the blocks clearly.

We don't keep the patterns people create, so we can't go back and look at the pattern and get you a better copy of it if you've purchased it from an independent seller.  Have you tried contacting the seller on Etsy?  Can they offer you a better copy of the pattern?  Perhaps they can regenerate the pattern as a word chart in addition to the conventional chart.

If not, my suggestion would be to take Sherry's excellent advice and generate your own pattern, at least as a word chart.  Smile

I just read the beginning of the thread and see that it's 300 by 1000. Sorry that I didn't look prior to my posting. Please upgrade me to the higher level. Thanks!

I still did not received my pattern after your trying to send twice.
Please use this alternate email.......

Hello! I wasn't sure where else to put this, so I figured I'd just post it here. Just a disclaimer here that I am new to knitting, I know the basics but there are a lot of concepts that I haven't been able to fully grasp on my own.

Below is a symbol (from the video game Animal Crossing) which I would like to be in the center of the blanket against an off-white background. I now have 3 bundles of chunky Lionbrand yarn (one of them being green, the other two off-white), how much more yarn would I need to buy to make this blanket? How do I knit in this big green symbol onto my white background? I made one of those charts and when I looked at the PDF form I was really confused on how to read it. How do I read those charts and know what color to use? Is this PDF basically telling me that I need to make this blanket in separate panels and then put them all together? If so, how do I knit panels together without it looking too obvious? How many stitches across and how many rows should I make if I want this to be a decent-sized blanket that a grown person can wrap around themself?  


How sweet that you're making a blanket for your three year old!  Kiss  Just because he's not a baby anymore doesn't mean he shouldn't also have a great blanket!  LOL, I'm so with him...and love what you've done so far, too.  He's got a good eye for color...those colors match very nicely...perhaps you have a future crocheter there?  The ripple pattern is always looks like that's worked with double crochets, which works up so nice and fast compared to single crochet!  Kiss

The hat is adorable!  Kiss  Love the color (purple is one of my faves!).  That nice, soft hat will be perfect for November's cold...sooo jealous that you can get such a soft cotton/wool blend yarn!  I'm sure it feels wonderful!  Kiss  Looked up the company, but there are no retailers selling the yarn here.  Cry  Of course, part of the fun is feeling the yarns, and we have no LYS anymore.  Cry  That's what I don't like about mail order, don't know if you're getting a soft yarn or a scratchy one.  Frown
