Some kinks but love it for knitting

I’ve always wanted to know how to knit the basics and the fact that I can build my own template with this is fantastic. I wish there was a similar app for crochet but Bellish has really improved my knitting and gotten me out of my comfort zone with different techniques. I’ve noticed some issues in the app that primarily relate to the ability to change a pattern if you screw something up. I’m working on a sweater for a friend and realized that I finalized a small, not extra small. If immediately copying and trying to open the copy the app would just white screen. Some stuff with the patterns also doesn’t always make sense, like knitting in the round. The patterns will give instruction about getting to the wrong side, which shouldn't happen if I’m working in a round. Overall, love the app and I’m still so happy that something like this exists for free in the world.

Needs an online retailer

I love this app. I’ve always wanted to create my own patterns and this makes it so easy. What would really be helpful, though, is if the creators of the app were able to get a partnership with an online retailer that you could have the option to buy your supplies from based off of the size needles, weight, and color of the yarn that you want to use to help take the guess work out of what kind of yarn to go out and buy. It would also make it very convenient so that you wouldn’t have to figure out a time to go to the craft store and spend time searching for the yarn and specific type of needles (i.e. plastic, metal, or wood) that you want to use for the project.

What I’ve always wanted—design your own perfect sweater

As an intermediate, moving to advanced, knitter, I signed up to be a beta tester. I LOVE this app! I’m excited for new base designs, but even with just the beta version which had one design, I was easily able to take a pattern for a crew neck pullover and convert it to a cardigan with lace panels on either side of the button band and up the back (lace pattern from a stitch book I have). They’ve added DK yarn weight with this release, which is my preferred weight for my lifestyle. The digital row counters make staying on track so easy, as do the check mark points and being able to highlight your place in the design. You can even be in a shop, fall in love with a yarn, and in moments come up with a draft design that tells you how much yarn to buy! Woot! I’m a happy camper, wearing a beautiful sweater.
