Now you can design Fair Isle colorwork knitting patterns on your iPhone or iPad.
Have fun and be creative!
What's New in Version 1.1
We fixed a bug which broke the snapshot of the patterns.
We added two new wool colours.
Good app so far!
This app was just what I needed fortunately. I love making my own patterns, and I just got into stranded knitting. I made my first color pattern in excel, but I wanted a way to quickly draw a color pattern idea and still see it in a knit aspect ratio. The ability to see it in stitch format is really great!
With that said, I do agree with the other reviewer that mentioned being able to change knits to purl would be a nice addition. I think you guys have put together a nice, useful app, and I believe it really has potential to expand into a full-blown pattern designer's app. :-)
This is a good idea but I like doing this in Excel or Numbers a lot more. Things that could make this app 5-star:
A grid to use for row counts.
Choose size of canvas; if you know you're working with x number of stitches and z number of rows, choose a canvas that size.
More colors. Use camera to "scan" colors from actual yarn.
A fill function for background color instead of tapping each. and. every. one.
Landscape mode, since most fair isle patterns are left-right.
Knit stitches are more rectangle than square, so maybe use an actual photo of knitting or make them proportional.
Copy/paste for repeating patterns.
Make a copy of saved work so trying out an idea won't change the original.
On the right track
The addition of a color picker to customize each of the limited color selections would make it perfect. As is, a useful but imperfect tool.
