Description
patterncraft helps you to easily create patterns (for example for knitting, crochet, beading, etc.) and experiment with different colours—something that you can't do with patterns in books or magazines. Easily tap out patterns with your palette of up to 10 colours (that you can change freely and choose from millions of shades), and 180 knitting and crochet symbols, up to a size of 100 columns x 100 rows. Once you have entered your pattern you can then change any of the colours to any shade you can imagine; you can even pick colours right out of your photos! patterncraft was inspired by the needs of an avid knitter—all feedback and suggestions on how to make it an even better tool for the pattern-crafting community are very welcome!
Love This App¡
by Joy in AZ on 2019/09/20 14:18
Thank you¡. This app is so useful for creating my own designs. I am an avid knitter and love fairisle, colorwork, intarsia and duplicate stitch. I would love if you add an “undo”. feature In future versions. Thanks again,
Disappointing
by EWyatt on 2019/01/31 02:21
This is useless for any crochet involving increases or multiple sizes of stitches. The crochet stitches are displayed identically, each taking one box when a chain stitch and a treble crochet popcorn aren’t remotely the same size. This may be useful for knitting, but I already have a more user friendly knitting app (knitting chart). I wish I could get my money back.

I love the concept of this app. It enables me to design and bring to life what’s in my head. I just wish the grid lines were darker. Helen Martin
This app is just what I wanted
by Jminwi on 2018/08/05 19:16
So easy to use. Works great for my color patterns.
No demo, app not what I was hoping for
by Moreorlesstrue on 2018/04/06 12:10
You can change the color, and stitch symbol on a tappable sheet of squares. Changing the symbol does not change the length of the stitch, so there’s definitely no way to see what it will actually look like stitched out. It doesn’t give you a rendering of what it would look like stitched up or anything like that. Very simple, barebones app. Could have used excel, sheets, drawn it up in a table on docs, or drawn it out on paper. Definitely wish I hadn’t spent $3.99!
Best app for Crochet, hoping for updates
by Kamokittie on 2018/02/19 03:59
This is by far the best app in the store for creating crochet patterns, but needs some updates and new features. Would love to have a circular chart option. Please don’t abandon this!
Very Useful For My Beading and Knitting Designs
by Solsticemoon on 2018/01/28 01:57
This app has been fantastically useful for precisely designing my own patterns for peyote stitch beadwork and for designing my own fair isle knitting patterns. It has a few drawbacks - (1) any design file can use only about ten colors, (2) it is not possible to draw a box to select a block of cells, and (3) each time I switch from one pallet color to another, the color-picker toolbox opens. That aside, this app is delightful! Choose rectangles if you are working with Delica beads; choose brick or quadrangle; any color you can imagine is available, and you can add knitting/crochet symbols over color patterns. The grid is 100 x 100 and you can even highlight a row or column to mark your place as you work from your pattern. I would definitely recommend this to my friends
Agree with Not Quite There
by Dreamer557 on 2017/12/29 02:10
Would be easier to use if can lasso cells instead of selecting cell each individually. Also would prefer if color mixer did not always show up when selecting a predefined color. And it really needs a undo to back out accidental mess ups.
Wonderful!
by Suzyg64 on 2017/08/03 18:30
This app does exactly what I needed it to do. It's like electronic graph paper (which is what I used to use for my knitting designs).
Good effort, not quite there yet
by DoodleBoodleNoddles on 2017/02/15 16:24
I love the idea. However.. 1. To copy and paste a repeating section of your pattern, you literally have to click every single square to select it, which is extremely time consuming. You need a "grab" function for users to draw around the multiple squares they would like to copy. 2. There are no stitch labels to indicate what type of stitch you are drawing. This app won't help you write patterns without any standard stitch labels. Is it a crochet pattern? Knitting? Beads? Is this a single crochet stitch or a knit stitch or a purl? 3. The color selection panel is painful. It needs a quick select function. Every single time you want to change colors, it bops up and asks you to refine the color you want, also wasting time....
This app is a godsend
by ☀Sunny Side Up on 2017/02/01 16:43
I wanted to start creating my own designs (lettering, symbols, images) and was looking for the right app. This is it! It enables one to see how a pattern you create will look in whatever color yarn you want to work with. You can create the perfect balance of color and see INSTANTLY how it changes the look of your pattern. It has features to create different sizes and print them or share them. There is a mode where you see your pattern as knit which is also helpful. Works very well on my iPad. Well supported app. Had a question on a feature and Stefan got back to me right away. Well worth the price.
Not too functional
by floita on 2016/02/12 21:45
I need to do crochet charts and this seemed to be it. It has symbols ... YAY! But little functionality. Created chart and tried to print, but got message that there were too few stitches... Added another row.... Was able to print, but got vertical columns... Not rows needed. My search continues.
Nice Little App
by Mooshell11 on 2016/02/08 15:57
I knit and I do bead weaving and chose this app to design some earrings. I like that the toggle bead mode is available for this especially for brick stitch. I would say it is perfect for me for knitting patterns and less complex beading patterns as the palette is limited. The app creator Stefan has been awesome with quick feedback response and help!! This is a nice little app. As a technical writer, I would like to see more in the How to use app area, but luckily, Stefan is willing to help. And I have been using it steadily for the last day or so and no crashes.
5 stars for amazing response time
by MomasLilSweetpea on 2015/12/16 21:43
This app is great for charting flat items, and the customer service is fantastic! I sent the creator an email and he responded very quickly.
Needs work.
by Takethisnameandshoveit on 2015/10/11 04:54
Needs some work for the price. The program needs a legend that names the stitch symbols. It needs to be able to export selected symbols and their names so that these can be included in a published pattern. It should be able to export directly to PDF. The files should be able to be saved in a format that could be shared with other users of this program. It needs much better documentation. If a 100 by 100 pattern is exported, 1/2 of the top 100th line is cut off.
Nu 2 this
by YO*YO on 2014/12/13 09:41
I crochet & am looking start my own patterns I thought this was only for knitting. Then I found that you hav crochet symbols too. I'm having fun trying it out. I'm so excited, thank u
Awesome
by One2travelfar on 2014/10/03 20:18
I had photos I wanted to convert to a knit pattern and I was able to "paint" over the picture and create a knit pattern. This will also be very handy when I experiment with fair isle color patterns. Occasionally a white square covered my work but it cleared when I refreshed. Thank you
Extraordinary!
by Vosslej3 on 2014/08/02 21:26
This app is, by far, the very best one for creating needlework patterns! Although it was developed for knitting, I use it exclusively for needlepoint and cross stitch patterns and am greatly impressed with all the functions. The app makes it easy to try out designs and color combinations before stitching, and the ability to select colors from photos is brilliant! There is a highlighter bar to keep track of your stitching; the "share" functions work perfectly; and the huge number of symbols can be added on top of a color or used alone. Also, the customer service is unsurpassed! I highly recommend this app for all types of needlework.
As stated
by RoRoBins on 2014/04/08 14:49
This app works exactly as described. Nice features are Continuous Draw Mode and Bead Mode. There is a color wheel for choosing a specific color. While I was hoping that Show Stitches would allow me to input the types of stitches used, it does not. Instead it brings up a preview of the colors as V's, rather than blocks. This is more of pattern chart maker than a pattern writer.
Room for improvement
by J-all on 2014/02/19 07:15
This does seem to be the best pattern charting app available, but there is room for improvement. I like the ability of this app to make color charts and even show the pattern in stitches, but there are some functions that could be better. 1-It would be nice if you could set the pattern area to a set number of cells 2- that you could change the orientation (ie which corner row 1, column 1 is) 3-Change the screen orientation to landscape or portrait. 4- draw boxes/borders around groups of cells as for a repeat portion 5- selecting for copying and pasting could be easier. Instead of having to touch every box you want to copy, the ability to drag a selection from corner to corner. 6- It would be nice to have other symbols besides a color square, even just text characters, dots or slashes would be helpful.
Great app for crafty people ;-)
by iampattyd. on 2013/10/28 05:30
This app just keeps getting better and better. Started out good; now is really great! So easy to use. Plan out your pattern for your knitting project, save to your photos, share with your friends. Having a pattern of your own design next to you makes it so easy to stay on track. Something visible to refer to - not just a counting pattern. Thank you so much for this!
This app has potential, but not there yet
by JHLMA on 2013/10/26 14:42
I recently purchased this app, as it appeared to be the best option for pattern design in the App Store. Once I started using it, I discovered its limitations. The app does not allow you to set the number of stitches you want in your pattern grid, which makes it virtually useless for me. The available pattern grid in the app is entirely too small. It seems to be meant for small, repetitive patterns, not for larger intarsia design. I hope the app designers address this flaw and issue an update -- because the app certainly does have potential.
I like it
by yonknits on 2013/06/23 01:52
This is a simple app that does exactly what it says it does: allows you to make color charts, save the charts, and reload them. You can also upload an image if you want to start your chart from a photo. In-app printing would be nice, but you can save the chart to your photo app and print from there.
Like it!
by amylbri on 2013/06/17 04:03
This is a really easy, useful app for a beginner pattern-maker like me. I don't care much for the black background and the squares are a little small, but I love being able to pull colors from my pictures! It helps me visualize what the pattern will look like when it's knit. Great app!

Very Useful For My Beading and Knitting Designs
by Solsticemoon on 2018/01/28 01:57
This app has been fantastically useful for precisely designing my own patterns for peyote stitch beadwork and for designing my own fair isle knitting patterns. It has a few drawbacks - (1) any design file can use only about ten colors, (2) it is not possible to draw a box to select a block of cells, and (3) each time I switch from one pallet color to another, the color-picker toolbox opens. That aside, this app is delightful! Choose rectangles if you are working with Delica beads; choose brick or quadrangle; any color you can imagine is available, and you can add knitting/crochet symbols over color patterns. The grid is 100 x 100 and you can even highlight a row or column to mark your place as you work from your pattern. I would definitely recommend this to my friends

Would be easier to use if can lasso cells instead of selecting cell each individually. Also would prefer if color mixer did not always show up when selecting a predefined color. And it really needs a undo to back out accidental mess ups.

I love the idea. However.. 1. To copy and paste a repeating section of your pattern, you literally have to click every single square to select it, which is extremely time consuming. You need a "grab" function for users to draw around the multiple squares they would like to copy. 2. There are no stitch labels to indicate what type of stitch you are drawing. This app won't help you write patterns without any standard stitch labels. Is it a crochet pattern? Knitting? Beads? Is this a single crochet stitch or a knit stitch or a purl? 3.

It enables one to see how a pattern you create will look in whatever color yarn you want to work with. You can create the perfect balance of color and see INSTANTLY how it changes the look of your pattern. It has features to create different sizes and print them or share them. There is a mode where you see your pattern as knit which is also helpful. Works very well on my iPad. Well supported app. Had a question on a feature and Stefan got back to me right away. Well worth the price.
Not too functional

I need to do crochet charts and this seemed to be it. It has symbols ... YAY! But little functionality. Created chart and tried to print, but got message that there were too few stitches... Added another row.... Was able to print, but got vertical columns... Not rows needed. My search continues.
Nice Little App
by Mooshell11 on 2016/02/08 15:57
I knit and I do bead weaving and chose this app to design some earrings. I like that the toggle bead mode is available for this especially for brick stitch. I would say it is perfect for me for knitting patterns and less complex beading patterns as the palette is limited. The app creator Stefan has been awesome with quick feedback response and help!! This is a nice little app. As a technical writer, I would like to see more in the How to use app area, but luckily, Stefan is willing to help. And I have been using it steadily for the last day or so and no crashes.
5 stars for amazing response time
by MomasLilSweetpea on 2015/12/16 21:43
This app is great for charting flat items, and the customer service is fantastic! I sent the creator an email and he responded very quickly.
Needs work.
by Takethisnameandshoveit on 2015/10/11 04:54
Needs some work for the price. The program needs a legend that names the stitch symbols. It needs to be able to export selected symbols and their names so that these can be included in a published pattern. It should be able to export directly to PDF. The files should be able to be saved in a format that could be shared with other users of this program. It needs much better documentation. If a 100 by 100 pattern is exported, 1/2 of the top 100th line is cut off.

I crochet & am looking start my own patterns I thought this was only for knitting. Then I found that you hav crochet symbols too. I'm having fun trying it out. I'm so excited, thank u
Awesome
by One2travelfar on 2014/10/03 20:18
I had photos I wanted to convert to a knit pattern and I was able to "paint" over the picture and create a knit pattern. This will also be very handy when I experiment with fair isle color patterns. Occasionally a white square covered my work but it cleared when I refreshed. Thank you
Extraordinary!
by Vosslej3 on 2014/08/02 21:26
This app is, by far, the very best one for creating needlework patterns! Although it was developed for knitting, I use it exclusively for needlepoint and cross stitch patterns and am greatly impressed with all the functions. The app makes it easy to try out designs and color combinations before stitching, and the ability to select colors from photos is brilliant! There is a highlighter bar to keep track of your stitching; the "share" functions work perfectly; and the huge number of symbols can be added on top of a color or used alone. Also, the customer service is unsurpassed! I highly recommend this app for all types of needlework.
As stated
by RoRoBins on 2014/04/08 14:49
This app works exactly as described. Nice features are Continuous Draw Mode and Bead Mode. There is a color wheel for choosing a specific color. While I was hoping that Show Stitches would allow me to input the types of stitches used, it does not. Instead it brings up a preview of the colors as V's, rather than blocks. This is more of pattern chart maker than a pattern writer.
Room for improvement
by J-all on 2014/02/19 07:15
This does seem to be the best pattern charting app available, but there is room for improvement. I like the ability of this app to make color charts and even show the pattern in stitches, but there are some functions that could be better. 1-It would be nice if you could set the pattern area to a set number of cells 2- that you could change the orientation (ie which corner row 1, column 1 is) 3-Change the screen orientation to landscape or portrait. 4- draw boxes/borders around groups of cells as for a repeat portion 5- selecting for copying and pasting could be easier. Instead of having to touch every box you want to copy, the ability to drag a selection from corner to corner. 6- It would be nice to have other symbols besides a color square, even just text characters, dots or slashes would be helpful.
Great app for crafty people ;-)
by iampattyd. on 2013/10/28 05:30
This app just keeps getting better and better. Started out good; now is really great! So easy to use. Plan out your pattern for your knitting project, save to your photos, share with your friends. Having a pattern of your own design next to you makes it so easy to stay on track. Something visible to refer to - not just a counting pattern. Thank you so much for this!
This app has potential, but not there yet
by JHLMA on 2013/10/26 14:42
I recently purchased this app, as it appeared to be the best option for pattern design in the App Store. Once I started using it, I discovered its limitations. The app does not allow you to set the number of stitches you want in your pattern grid, which makes it virtually useless for me. The available pattern grid in the app is entirely too small. It seems to be meant for small, repetitive patterns, not for larger intarsia design. I hope the app designers address this flaw and issue an update -- because the app certainly does have potential.
I like it
by yonknits on 2013/06/23 01:52
This is a simple app that does exactly what it says it does: allows you to make color charts, save the charts, and reload them. You can also upload an image if you want to start your chart from a photo. In-app printing would be nice, but you can save the chart to your photo app and print from there.
Like it!
by amylbri on 2013/06/17 04:03
This is a really easy, useful app for a beginner pattern-maker like me. I don't care much for the black background and the squares are a little small, but I love being able to pull colors from my pictures! It helps me visualize what the pattern will look like when it's knit. Great app!
This app is a godsend

Very Useful For My Beading and Knitting Designs
by Solsticemoon on 2018/01/28 01:57
This app has been fantastically useful for precisely designing my own patterns for peyote stitch beadwork and for designing my own fair isle knitting patterns. It has a few drawbacks - (1) any design file can use only about ten colors, (2) it is not possible to draw a box to select a block of cells, and (3) each time I switch from one pallet color to another, the color-picker toolbox opens. That aside, this app is delightful! Choose rectangles if you are working with Delica beads; choose brick or quadrangle; any color you can imagine is available, and you can add knitting/crochet symbols over color patterns. The grid is 100 x 100 and you can even highlight a row or column to mark your place as you work from your pattern. I would definitely recommend this to my friends
Good effort, not quite there yet
by DoodleBoodleNoddles on 2017/02/15 16:24
I love the idea. However.. 1. To copy and paste a repeating section of your pattern, you literally have to click every single square to select it, which is extremely time consuming. You need a "grab" function for users to draw around the multiple squares they would like to copy. 2. There are no stitch labels to indicate what type of stitch you are drawing. This app won't help you write patterns without any standard stitch labels. Is it a crochet pattern? Knitting? Beads? Is this a single crochet stitch or a knit stitch or a purl? 3. The color selection panel is painful. It needs a quick select function. Every single time you want to change colors, it bops up and asks you to refine the color you want, also wasting time....
No demo, app not what I was hoping for
by Moreorlesstrue on 2018/04/06 12:10
You can change the color, and stitch symbol on a tappable sheet of squares. Changing the symbol does not change the length of the stitch, so there’s definitely no way to see what it will actually look like stitched out. It doesn’t give you a rendering of what it would look like stitched up or anything like that. Very simple, barebones app. Could have used excel, sheets, drawn it up in a table on docs, or drawn it out on paper. Definitely wish I hadn’t spent $3.99!
Agree with Not Quite There
by Dreamer557 on 2017/12/29 02:10
Would be easier to use if can lasso cells instead of selecting cell each individually. Also would prefer if color mixer did not always show up when selecting a predefined color. And it really needs a undo to back out accidental mess ups.
Best app for Crochet, hoping for updates
by Kamokittie on 2018/02/19 03:59
This is by far the best app in the store for creating crochet patterns, but needs some updates and new features. Would love to have a circular chart option. Please don’t abandon this!
Disappointing
by EWyatt on 2019/01/31 02:21
This is useless for any crochet involving increases or multiple sizes of stitches. The crochet stitches are displayed identically, each taking one box when a chain stitch and a treble crochet popcorn aren’t remotely the same size. This may be useful for knitting, but I already have a more user friendly knitting app (knitting chart). I wish I could get my money back.
Grid Lines
by 2temprance on 2018/11/10 12:35
I love the concept of this app. It enables me to design and bring to life what’s in my head. I just wish the grid lines were darker. Helen Martin
Wonderful!
by Suzyg64 on 2017/08/03 18:30
This app does exactly what I needed it to do. It's like electronic graph paper (which is what I used to use for my knitting designs).
This app is just what I wanted
by Jminwi on 2018/08/05 19:16
So easy to use. Works great for my color patterns.
Love This App¡
by Joy in AZ on 2019/09/20 14:18
Thank you¡. This app is so useful for creating my own designs. I am an avid knitter and love fairisle, colorwork, intarsia and duplicate stitch. I would love if you add an “undo”. feature In future versions. Thanks again,
Extraordinary!
