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! My name is Kristy but I go by Stitches so either one will work. I have been cross stitching for about 30 years. I know I am My mom taught me. Anyhow. I am a work at home mom and LOVE cross stitching. I know duh right?  Other things I video games, read, write (I am a published author). I usually work on more than one project at a time. Right now I am working on 5 Harry Potter themed pieces for my best friend's upcoming FIRST baby shower!

I am partial to geek stuff so my works usually are geek related. I am so glad to have found you all and looking forward to meeting some friends who also cross stitch!!

What is the difference in making a pattern in square stitch mode vs rectangular stitch mode in the illusion knitting mode? I am trying to figure out why I would choose one over the other? Thanks for your help. Margaret

Welcome!  Smile

The free upgrade was an extended beta test and is over.  In order to make larger patterns, we now have those options as Premier features.  You can see the Premier features we have and subscribe on this page:

The current options are 300 stitches across, for the introductory price of $2.99 for a year, and 500 stitches across, for the introductory price of $4.99 for a year.  If you're interested in 500, that includes 300, so you don't have to pay for both, just the one.  Smile

Can I please get an upgrade for the crochet to 500 please? I love this site, I have never really done crochet before other then a simple granny square blankets and your program has made it so easy that I have been working on my first graphgran and its coming out great but would like to make bigger ones too!
