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!
To read a particular post, simply click on it!
We're continuing to add new options and features. At some point I'll turn on a whole new look and feel to the program but for now we'll continue to enhance the current package.
For those subscribed to the Private Label (Custom) pdf Premier feature (and those subscribed to all features), I just added the ability to minimize the big red Private Label box.
There are multiple settings that you can select through the "Preferences" tab near the top left of the page.
Click on this tab and at the right of the popup box you'll see:
Note that only those who have subscribed to this option or to "all features" will see this box.
Your options are as follows:
"Always Show" - When selected, the big red Private Label box will always show when you're working on the page.
"Always Minimize" - When selected, the big red box will be minimized to a single line, with a green plus sign (+). When you click on the plus sign, the red box will open and a red minus sign (-) will then be at the top right of the box. When you click on the red minus sign, the box will close back down to a single line. The minimized single line looks like this:
"Remember Previous Setting" - When selected, the program remembers your last setting of the big red Private Label box. If you are working and open the box using the green plus, then reload the page, or even come back tomorrow, the red box will still be open. Then if you click on the red minus sign and close the box, reload the page, or come back tomorrow, the big red box will be closed unless you re-open it.
I usually set it at the "Remember Previous Setting". I normally don't want all that space taken up showing the red box. But if I'm doing some work where I need to make some changes or fine tuning of how I want the pdf to look, I open the box. Then as I work and change pages, etc., the box stays open. Then when I'm done, I reclose it and future use of the program just has the single red line.
Remember to click on the "Save Settings" button after making your choice in the Preferences tab.
Hope this feature helps.
Hi everyone my name is Jan im in the UK, I knit, crochet, sew, just started to learn machine embroidery , ive been sewing for over 15yrs and knitting and crochet about a year and embroidey 3 months as my other half bought me an embroidery machine for christmas , im hoping to learn more about embroidering, and colour changing in knitting, and how to get around this site lol, what ive seen so far is fab and im looking forward to seeing all your projects and achievments Jan x
It's both good and bad...we can't figure out how we did something without actually doing it...but there is that muscle memory that takes over!
I didn't knit for a few years, then one day I picked up the needles, figuring I wasn't going to have much luck, but wouldn't you know, I remembered! Couldn't have told you what I was about to do, but managed to do it!
LOL, it's so different to do something than to explain it. It's like I was telling someone about reading knitting instructions. The instructions usually say to read everything through completely. I've tried, but can never make head or tail out of anything. But if I start working...no problem!
Hee hee, and you're right...we can be very strange creatures!
Hello to all!
I am new to this site, but not new to crochet. I am going to attempt a "graghaghan"... my question is this... the yarn color code on my graph that I obtained from this site... What yarn company is this from? Red Heart? Caron? Lion?... I'm very confused and I need a lot of different shades and I don't want to get odd colors. I'm excited to be able to use this site for many graphs that I've been meaning to do for years and now I've gotten brave and I'm going to attempt... but first I need to know where to get the yarn! =) Thank you in advance! Denise
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?
