Ratings and Reviews
Helpful video tutorials.
Before I even begin a project with this app, I can already say I’m liking the tutorial videos all being in one easy-to-get-to place. However, there hasn’t been any sound in any of the videos I’ve tried. Not sure at the moment if my sound is malfunctioning, or if audio simply isn’t available.
I do wish the various buttons/icons were labeled for those who rely on voiceover. (For those who aren’t aware, voiceover is a built in screen reader used by the blind and visually impaired. I use voiceover occasionally when my eye condition causes a bad eye day and makes me do all tasks in a non-visual manner.) If this were the case, I would likely use this app regularly. For now, I can always hope for improvement on the accessibility features. Meanwhile, I’ll explore my way around during my good eye days.
I did explore the cardigan pattern. From what I understand of this app, directions are supposed to be available on a line by line basis. I can find the individual lines...but cannot figure what the actual directions are. I just find text that says “repeat the schema” for a certain number of times. How do I know what “the schema” is? Perhaps a simple “knit all stitches” or K1P1 across row” would be helpful.

Thank you for your feedback. All videos have background music, that you should be able to ear. It works on our device, we will see if we can reproduce your issue. Your suggestion regarding voiceover is great. The app allows you already to ear the instructions for the line by line pattern. We will work on implementing it for the videos as well. The schema is what you see below the instructions. you should see little icons that represent a knitting action. By clicking on it, you have a short description of this action (knit, purl, decrease....) as well as an access to a video tutorial. If you have any other issue or suggestion, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to help. Have a nice day!
Marks project finished when it’s not!
I keep having to back into the project because it has marked it as finished. I’m deleting this app and trying something else, because it’s causing more difficulty than it’s worth!
This app has knitting patterns, but I can’t figure out how to look at an entire pattern before deciding whether to take it on. It just shows step-by-step directions, and skipping to the next instruction is very difficult. It also apparently has no way to modify a pattern within the app. For instance, a pullover pattern says to use size 6 needles. I don’t want to spend the next three years of my life knitting it, so I’d rather use size 8. Guess what? There’s no way to select your preferred needle size. Very disappointing!
Developer Response ,
At the moment it is indeed not possible to see the entire pattern, as we focused on giving people step by step instructions that are easier to follow than the usual knitting patterns. But we are thinking about adding that feature in the future. You have the choice between different needle size for our easiest patterns, but we didn't implement that yet for the most complex ones. As you probably now, adapting a pattern to a different needle size is not easily doable automatically (we could do so, but the risk of ending up with something totally wrong would be very high and we don't want to take that risk). We will do our best to provide soon similar patterns for different needle sizes.
