Editors' Notes

Get stuck into knitting.


Best app ever

This app is a pro. It has the most greatest app ever . As a beginner of knitting I have had an app that helps me to do ideas and personalise them for people. There is an app that I want you to be wary of Santa tracker. It is the most bonkers app ever in the world and every time you click the radar to see where Santa is it just goes black and the turns it self off. It might sound to you that this app has worked or not but it hasn’t worked for me. The knitting app is a useful , exiting and fun way to make things out of wool. There are so many people who can help you on this app it is so helpful and everyone is like a friend when you put something onto the app. I am just a beginner and I an so eager to make things and do a bit of knitting. I would like to make cardigans , jumpers and sweatshirts. I want to be able to get into a hobby where I am knitting until I grow old and get bored of it. There are so many thing I would like to knit from this app and personalised too for example jumpers and hats.

I hope you have a great time people trying to knit something from this app,



Good app but missing the zing

This app is really great for reading patterns, tracking projects and storing your patterns to decide what to do next. I love the huge moveable bar you can use to track your place in the pattern, it is seriously helpful. I also love how there is Ravelry integration as well.

I wanted to get the positive done first so that people know the app works great but I do have some gripes/suggestions that could make it just brill
- ability to upload your own patterns in pdf form - like if you have bought them on Etsy or something
- at the moment all the app does is store patterns it would be great if you could use it to order wool and browse new patterns etc rather than just linking to the store
- better wool suggestions for 3rd party patterns like linking to double knit or a particular colour
- a resource link - such as conversions from American/European sizes and UK ones - or perhaps instructional videos
- this is my only gripe but it is more with Ravelry then it is with the app. Not every pattern will link up because they aren’t hosted through Ravelry and are actually links to blogs and you can’t see when you are browsing patterns which type it is.

Add features like this and this app would be my 1 stop for all my crochet patterns and supplies.
