JKnit lets you enjoy uninterrupted knitting with detailed row-by-row reminders.
Just advance the counter as you complete each row, and JKnit HD Pro will direct you what to do next. If you need to tweak your pattern or frog a few rows back, the app will track and adjust accordingly. And whenever you come back to a project after a while, JKnit HD Pro will help you pick up exactly where you left off.
Keep track of your project materials, add photos and maintain project logs.
You can easily capture and keep track of all of the essential project information in JKnit. Input your project yarn and needles, type or paste in you project directions and notes. Set your project start date, and the knit timer will automatically record the time you spend working on a project. It is also simple to add project photos by either taking them with the built-in camera (iPad 2 only) or importing them from the photo library.
All of your projects always at your fingertips.
JKnit HD Pro has a built-in database that will store all of your projects. There is no limit, as long as there is enough memory. So, wherever you go, you will have all of your projects with you - just bring along your iPad!
Built-in PDF viewer designed with knitters in mind.
It is easy to follow charts with this PDF viewer. You can rotate pages with landscape-oriented charts and add custom row highlight bars on every page of the pattern. Just double tap anywhere above the bar to shift it up or below to shift it down. Import your PDFs into the app from your computer, e-mail attachments, websites or download them directly from your pattern library on KnitPoint.com.

Lovely app, once you have the hang of it.
I use this app for all my knitting and wouldn't be without it. I would rate it 5 stars if a couple of things that irritate me were addressed. Firstly, I wish it would reopen after I close it, on the page I left it on, rather than keep having to go back through all the menus. It does stay on the page for a short while, but not long enough. Secondly, when I am adding a block to a pattern, I would like to be able to choose the row of the block I want to start on (i.e. if I am knitting a yoke) and I would like the option to choose which rows of a block to repeat (so if the block has foundation rows, they can be included). Great app though.
What a joy to have my knitting patterns on my IPad so I can work on more that one project at a time and know exactly where I am on each. Nice for on holiday too. Many thanks.
Could do better
I have been using the free app and liked it. So I thought I would upgrade to this app. Unfortunately I haven't found an easy way to move my knitting patterns from the free app to this app.
