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. :-)

Has Potential


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.

Purl stitches.

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.
