Kathy,

As this is a technical issue (I can tell you all about crochet, but not computer programming!) I've alerted Terry (Support) to your issue.

What I do know is there's a known problem with stray colors that will be fixed in the next build; beyond that, I don't have the expertise to answer your question, which is why I've forwarded it to Terry. Smile

Sara,

Ok.  Gotcha.  I just quickly tried the download button and get the same thing so I'll be able to fix it.  I'll look into this in a bit and will get back to you.

Terry

Piddy,

Okay, I think we're using terms interchangeably that aren't interchangeable.  So here's an example; please specify which one you're doing in the drawing below, the left or the right.

In this example, your afghan is either 100 stitches x 250 rows (left) or 250 stitches x 100 rows (right).

Which one will you be doing?  Will you be working from row 1 to 250, or will you be working from row 1 to 100?



If you're working as the example on the left, where row 1 starts at the bottom and goes to the top, that's called working vertically.

If you're working as the example on the right, where row 1 starts at the bottom and goes to the top, that's called working horizontally.

This is the cause of my confusion.  If you say you're working horizontally, the example on the right is what I'm seeing.  So if you're actually doing the left example, you're working vertically, and that's what we call portrait mode.  If you're doing the right example, you're working horizontally, in landscape mode.  Think about it as a picture on the wall.  In most cases, the left would more likely be a portrait of a person, the right would more likely be a landscape, such as a sunset or a forest scene, where you want to see a wider view.

So, as long as you send the image in either like the example on the left, if you'll be working the rows that way, or if you send the image in like the example on the right, if you'll be working the rows that way, you'll be working the stitches correctly.

My guess is you're really doing what's on the left, but you're calling it horizontal, which is incorrect, as it's vertical.  And if that's the case, as long as you sent your image in as a vertical image, then it's fine.  Smile

Hello to all of you,

I have a suggestion for everyone wanting to make a c2c graph.

Since c2c is worked in blocks, why not try the tunisian square option to create a graph with square blocks.

I don't do the c2c graphs, so I can't guarantee, but worth a try.

Silvertiger,

Illusion knitting works best when you have an image with a lot of contrast.  If you look at some of the images of illusion knitting that are online, you'll see the stitch patterns are also elongated, which is part of the illusion.  Your pattern is produced by purling certain stitches, which, along with the piece being elongated, gives the eye the illusion of certain rows appearing prominently, and that makes your design.
