Standards and Guidelines for Crochet and Knitting | The publishers, fiber, needle and hook manufacturers and yarn members of the Craft Yarn Council have worked together to set up a series of guidelines and symbols to bring uniformity to yarn, needle and hook labeling and to patterns, whether they appear in books, magazines, leaflets or on yarn labels. Our goal is to make it easier for industry manufacturers, publishers and designers to prepare consumer-friendly products and for consumers to select the right materials for a project and complete it successfully. Included are: Standards and Guidelines for Crochet and Knitting |

I used to like row-by-row instructions. They told me what stitches to make, and I made them. It was very simple.

New in version 2.00: For Mac users, font should now work on both Windows and Macinstosh systems. Added left and right leaning slash style symbols for ssk and k2tog on the backslash and shift-backslash keys respectively. NOTE: Version 2.00 is not reliably compatible with earlier versions of the font! While Excel files created with the old font version seem to load fine, Word documents may need to have the symbols re-entered. New users, Macintosh owners and those wishing to upgrade should download this version. Aire River Knitting Font Aire River Knitting Font
Stitch charts in knit and crochet patterns are being used more and more as an addition to or in place of words to describe a pattern stitch. Following are the standardized knit symbols that have been adopted by members of the Craft Yarn Council and are considered to be the clearest and easiest to render and to read. For the most part each symbol represents a stitch as it looks on the right side of the work. Always refer to the pattern key for additional symbol definitions.

Cathy Scott's StitchMastery So excited was I by the prospect of the first ever Edinburgh Yarn Festival that I hardly slept the night before. I was up before 6am ready for Mica to collect me at 6.30. Once at the Drill Hill in Leith (Leithers will tell you that this is Leith NOT Edinburgh but most everybody else ignores them) we were joined by an army of volunteers ready to welcome the stallholders.

I mostly love my iPad, but I wish someone would write the perfect knitting app. The iTunes store has quite a large handful--counters, project managers, books--but none of them is The Killer Knitting App. Recently, a new program appeared that would seem, from reading the PR, to fulfill my KKA requirements. Errrgh. It was expensive and clumsy to use, and a regrettable expenditure. software software
Personal computers, dweeby and enormously expensive toys twenty years ago, are now, for better or worse, an intimate part of most of our lives. Their uses span a breathtaking (or alarming,depending on your point of view) range of applications. We all know about the Internet; word processing, photo editing, and Solitaire.

Good old Excel. This spreadsheet app has been around forever, and its uses are myriad. You can keep a stash list, make charts, and keep track of pattern rows as you knit. Software for Knitters: Part II--Charting with Excel Software for Knitters: Part II--Charting with Excel
Software for Knitters: Part III--Knit Visualizer Review Knit Visualizer version 1.2 Platform: Mac and PCRating: 4 out of 5 stars Knit Visualizer is an astounding programming tour de force. The program not only lets you paint stitches onto a graph, it also can translate written directions into a chart for you. After Excel, it’s the program I turn to most for charting tasks, especially if I want especially handsome printed output.
This pattern incorporates a shadow knitted apple - almost as fascinating as the iPad itself. Hold the cover vertically and it's just a plain old striped cover. Hold it at an angle - the flatter the better and wow! Jacquie's Journal

The Bottom Line For a free program, this is a good option for people who want to make charts for their own use and who have a good grasp of what the different symbols mean. I found it a little frustrating to use, but other people might not replicate the problems I had. And even with the issues I had, I would probably still use this program to make simple charts for my own use. Pros Knitting Chart Maker - Review of Knitting Chart Maker Program by Jacquie
