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

Welcome! Smile

I'm not sure I'm understanding what you're asking, so feel free to correct me if I have this all wrong!

As of now the freePatternWizard's word charts assume you already know how to crochet, so they simply reflect the colors in your pattern. A graphghan pattern would technically be repetitive across the row: sc, sc, sc, sc, sc..., so other than starting chains there's really no difference in the instructions. You wouldn't have an instruction like sc, ch1, sc because a chain in between two sc stitches would throw off the pattern. You'll want to crochet solid scs in each row, consistently, or making a pattern wouldn't really work.

Please let me know if I'm misunderstanding what you're asking. Smile

All Good ! Found it! Thanks

The filet option is still not available.  We'll be improving the software and adding premium features, so keep an eye open for changes.  Smile

You're very welcome!

1) I've upgraded you.
2) This part is a little more complex.  Since you're new at it, I would say to try a small practice piece.  Once you get the hang of it, then I'd say to try something larger.  I'm sure you'd rather just get started, but I can relate this to how I do things...I often try starting something big first, but ultimately I give up.  That's when I try something smaller.  (This is what I did with bead crochet.  I couldn't do it and almost gave up, but then I started working with pony beads and yarn, which accustomed me to holding the crochet hook.)

The pattern follows conventional rules; e.g., you make your starting chain with one extra for the turn.  Then the first row starts with single crochets (and that's the stitch you'll be using throughout the piece).  So if your pattern is 150 across, you would start at the bottom with 151 chains, then the first row would be single crochets into the chains.

No matter which method I choose, whether it's crocheting, beading, x-stitching, etc, the program won't generate any patterns for me anymore, at least not on this computer.  I'm hoping I don't have the same issue with my computer at home.  This is just all of a sudden.

What reason will the program not genrate patterns you make an attempt to create?  I've done nothing wrong.  I've made patterns before, but all of a sudden it's not working for me.  Why?
