It’s taking shape! As I told you in my last post, my partner and I are working on a knitting calculator to help interpreting complicated increases or decreases in a knitting pattern.
How to spread across your stitches, and if possible, in an even manner?
So after doing a lot of math and coding, we’ve prepared our very first version of the site. I would be very grateful for any feedback you have!
At the moment you can:
- calculate for knitting in a row
- choose to increase or decrease your knitting project
- dynamically modify how many stitches you have, how many you want to increase/decrease by and get the Results and Diagram updated straight away
- change the type of stitch you are using (at the moment we have YO, M1, K2TOG, SSK) and once again update straight away your Results and Diagram
- visualise how the decrease/increase will be spread across your work in the Diagram
- expand the Diagram so you can see your whole work (in case you have a repeated pattern)
- highlight an instruction in the Results so you can see how it looks like in the Diagram and vice versa
- click a stitch to mark it (so you mark your progress as you knit) – yeah that’s really cool 🙂
And the best part: it’s FREE!
We will be looking in the future to expend it with:
- calculating when knitting in a circle (that’s why the option is greyed out at the moment)
- adding more calculation options (I still have to figure them out 🙂 )
So what do you think? If you use it, please send me your feedback so I know whether it works as expected or not. Also suggested improvements are welcome 🙂
