Create patterns right on your iPad.
Knit Designer is a brand new way to be creative with your knitting. This new tool allows you to create text based patterns and knitting charts. With a user friendly interface and five special knitting keyboards, you will be creating patterns like a pro in no time. Best of all, you can share these patterns right from the app.
Knit Designer makes use of great features like:
- Five (5) Special Knitting Keyboards
- A Chart Designer
- A Text Designer
- Knitting Pattern Preview
- Individual Section Timestamps
- Adjustable Sliders on the Charts for Visual Aid
- Pattern Sharing with Chart Legend
- Your Own Pattern Repository
- A Knitting Abbreviation Index
And much more…
Like other available design apps, this is a good start, and really a bargain considering the cost of software for knitwear design. I do like how the pattern writing of the app is organized, taking you through the first essential steps of determining needle size, gauge, yarn totals needed for the design. As others have mentioned, it would be a great idea to be able to import a picture. I found the keyboards of knitting abbreviations cumbersome to use. I spent more time looking for an abbreviation than just typing it out myself! The chart could also have the capability to be numbered or have more than one chart per design. Hopefully the developers are still working on this app, I think it has potential.
Mostly wanted the charting option
I like the chart section pretty well, but it is missing one thing I consider vital, a spacer marker. If you are either increasing or decreasing, you need a 'blank space' to fill in the chart so all the stitches align properly.
As mentioned in other reviews, being able to jump to different spots along the lines would be useful. Honestly, a knit notation font and a spreadsheet work better for just charting. This app sets up everything for the written directions and notes all in a nifty package.
The app has a lot of potential, it just isn't there just yet.
Very good app
I write a lot of patterns and this app is a very good tool. No, it isn't perfect yet but it's darn good, and the people are very responsive.
I saw a review that said if you don't do Facebook or Twitter you can't communicate with them. Absolutely not true! I sent an email and had a very good, helpful reply in a few hours. I believe they are trying to improve this app and address the issues that people tell them about. To me that is the best anyone can ask for.
