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!  Laughing

And yes, when I first started it, I considered many times not even finishing it.  I even laid it aside for a few months and never touched it.  But now, I'm soooooooo glad that I stuck it out.  It isn't finished yet, but I'm moving along.  

Hello!  I'm totally new to the site.  I want to crochet a blanket with the MIT beaver.  I found a picture and have been working on this site for hours to try to get a clear picture without stray lines, but the beaver defined.  I'm struggling and desperately need help.  I also wanted to pic my colors, but I couldn't figure out how. Any help would be appreciated!!!  I'm totally frustrated!  

im teaching myself how to read graphs. so thank you and im sure ill have many

You'll need to adjust your image.  If you discover it's truncating at the bottom, you'll have to add borders to your image to compensate for the extra space on the left and right.  Your image must be wide for the 245 stitches and it must be of shallow depth so the program will adjust the number of stitches accordingly.  The reason you can't pick a length of 25 is because your image would skew too much.

Also remember that the program can only give you back what you have.  If you're running a photo through that's 4 inches by 6 inches, that's not going to give you the result you want.  You'll have to keep experimenting until you end up with an extra-wide and not very high image before you even run it through the freePatternWizard.

I posted one FREE knitting book for Kindle for today...grab it before it's 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.)
