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

Assuming all 96 of the colors you chose are actually in the image, try setting the Color Sensitivity in section eight to 1.

If there are chances that you changed the brightness, contrast, smoothness or some other settings, it may be difficult to get the exact same pattern.

Given the same image and the exact same settings, the program should give the same pattern.

Changing the stitches across or sending it a different size image would change the pattern.

Here's another idea.  It may sound strange but go into the Preferences tab (lower left) and try changing the "Pdf Cover Page Image Appearance" setting.  Until I turn on the next version (which I hope will be this coming week), this setting can sometimes affect the colors chosen in the image.

I'll try to come up with some other ideas but these are a start.


I don't have a computer so I have my entire life on my iPhone including all my pictures. I am desperately trying to do a graphgan pattern from an image taken with my iPhone. There are no adjustments that can be made to the size of the images. Is there any way possible to have a graph and pattern done with iPhone images Huh

Can anybody tell me please, where I find the colours I need to use for my graph please, I'm very new to this many thanks


Welcome!  Smile

Before you go to a big, complex pattern, my suggestion would be to start with some small graphs that you can find online.  It would be daunting to start with a very large graph first; as I found out with bead crochet, starting without practicing or trying it out can be very difficult.  Until I stopped thinking about all of the big projects I could make with bead crochet and started some practice pieces with yarn and big plastic pony beads, I couldn't do bead crochet.  Starting with the yarn and pony beads made all of the difference.

That's why my recommendation is to try something smaller first.  Try some smaller patterns where you can become accustomed to working on graphs.  Once you've done a few of those and know how to handle changing colors and weave in the ends, then I'd say to start with a larger graph, but until then, I wouldn't suggest going to a large, complex pattern for your very first graphed project.  Smile


Hi, I responded to your question in the other topic...I can't tell what you're seeing, so until I know, I can't respond.  All I can guess is that you're looking at a word chart.
