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

Hi,

This was a known problem, especially when manually choosing colors.  I've corrected it in the next version and am trying to finish all the other testing soon.

I want to get the next version enabled asap because I have some new features to also finish testing so I can turn them on too.

I'm pretty much down to two issues to correct and then will make the update.

Debbie,

Thank you kindly!  Kiss  I'm sure we've got a lot of areas where you can help tremendously . Kiss

I have an afghan for a Wedding to crochet. May I please have an increase in stitch counts? This program is the absolute best!

Thank You

Nana Z

Cheryl,

Welcome!  Smile

If you have a particular picture in mind and you have it on your computer, you can turn it into a crochet graph with the help of the freePatternWizard, which is available from the menu above, under "patterns/create a pattern."

I would suggest using the Stitchboard Basic Palette, as too many colors in a pattern would be next to impossible to match to yarn.

Also, as I tell people who are expert crocheters but have never made a graphghan before, from personal experience I've discovered it's best to start small and simple.  My favorite example is my almost-disastrous try at making crocheted bangle bracelets...they looked so beautiful, and since I've been crocheting for years and years, I must be expert enough, right?  Of course not!  Wink  Holding the beads, thread and hook was very awkward, challenging and not at all instinctive.  I almost gave up, but then in desperation grabbed some yarn and pony beads, and before I knew it, crocheting with beads was no longer awkward!  Smile

I would suggest starting with a pillow or some kind of square at first.  Smile  Once you feel comfortable, transitioning over to a large graphghan should be easy!  Smile

BTW, feel free to post pictures of any of your work (graphghan related or not) in our photo albums, so everyone can drool!  Wink

I posted one FREE quilting 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.)
