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!)

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

Hello every one. I am new to the group and very excited to find this site.

Welcome! Smile
You're so right about that! Crochet is versatile and handy...and a lot of fun...not seeing a downside here! Wink

I'm not sure you'll be able to work as small as you need to for a pen wrap, unfortunately. The freePatternWizard is best used when you give it an image that is the same number of pixels as you'll need for number of beads (stitches).
In other words if you wanted a pattern that was, say, 20 beads across you'd give the freePatternWizard an image that was 20 pixels across, then give it 20 stitches across in option #6. (At this time the horizontal measurement is the only one you can give to the freePatternWizard. This will eventually change, but for now it's not possible to override the computer figuring the vertical measurement for you.)
It's best to work all patterns like that with the freePatternWizard. With text, the problem is that if you have an image that is larger and you're trying to make it smaller (or smaller and you're trying to make it larger), it will only distort and give you things like missing text. Text is especially difficult because unless you're going pixel to bead it usually has thin lines that will either be represented in the pattern by thick areas or they'll disappear altogether. The best solution for that is to give it an image that already has the dimensions you want, so if you wanted a pattern that was 50 beads by 50 rows, you'd give it an image that's 50x50. Again, the vertical on that can't be guaranteed, but for the horizontal, pixels to stitches will work best. Smile

My name is Patti. I was born a crafter and that means I have been crafting a veryyyyy long time!! I am a cake artist as well as have a jewelry company since 2005. 
I picked up making jewelry while working in a craft store and having more stress in my life than I ever could imagine. So one day I saw a "well known" home party jewelry line and thought....hmmm I think I can do that. So I have been beading and selling my work ever since. Four years ago my hands started to fail me while making a wedding cake. I started having excrutiating pains in my thumbs. Long story therapy, medications, gels, CBD oil...etc etc many Dr's later....they cannot do a thing for the pain. So I push through. I started to join different pages on FaceBook and soon found Peyote with a Twist....not Crochet. I am HOOKED and now I've started making my own patterns. The problem is, the program I use cannot help me with IMAGES. It's been very frustrating. So I went on a search for a program that could help ease my frustration. I found Stitchboard...Yayyyyyy. Thank you for adding me to this amazing site. I just know I will love getting to know some fellow crafters. I look forward to your inspiration workings. 

I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Karen, I live in a super small town in Northwest Mo (221 people) LOL I found this web site on crochet parfait . I was hoping maybe some one out there could give me any advice on the graph-gans or the corner to corner crochet patterns. I've heard that I can upload or download a pattern from the crochet parfait web site to here somehow to make the graph more legible.  I was also wondering if anyone knew how to judge the final size of a graph-gan to corner to corner, since one is single crochet and the other is double.  I'm sorry to be such a pain right of the bat , but I so want to begin a crochet pattern as soon as possible and not sure where to begin.  Thank you in advance
