App FAQs

  • How can I print the pattern from the app?
    • To print from the app you need to have an AirPrint compatible printer connected to the same WiFi network as the device you are printing from.
  • What is AirPrint?
    • AirPrint is the name Apple give to printing from iOS devices.  To print anything from an iPad or iPhone you need to have a WiFi printer that is AirPrint enabled.
  • Is it possible to save to PDF?
    • Yes! The apps have been updated so that the patterns are in a PDF format which can be ‘opened in’ other applicable applications on the user’s device.
  • What is the format of the patterns generated in the apps?
    • The patterns are generated as written text instructions, and the patterns in the Sweaters and Cardigans app are now also generated as schematics.  Both are generated in a PDF format which can be opened in other suitable applications.
  • Is there more detail for the measurements I need to enter in settings?
    • When using the app, for each measurement that you need to enter, there is an ‘Info’ button in the top right hand corner of the screen where you choose the measurement, which gives a description of where to take the measurement.  The details are also on this website.
  • Can I create patterns for standard sizes without having to enter body measurements?
    • Yes! You can now choose from standard sizes for women, men, babies & toddlers, girls and boys.  The measurements will be automatically populated in settings, but you can adjust each one individually as required.
  • Does the Sweater and Cardigans app feature raglan sleeves?
    • Yes! In the paid version of the app you can choose from Set-in, Raglan or Drop-shoulder sleeve / armhole styles.  The free version of the app has set-in sleeves only, the other options will be enabled if you upgrade.
  • Are pattern instructions for knitting in the round?
    • currently pattern text instructions are for flat knitting, bottom-up only.   If you are experienced at knitting in the round and working from schematics, you could do this.
    • Knitting in the round and top-down knitting are on my list of features to add in future updates.
