Ratings and Reviews
Very good app with potential to be great!
This is a very nice utility for recording design as you knit patterns, and for keeping track of your place in patterns that you are working on. Importing pdf patterns is easy and the highlighting bar is a great way to keep track of where you are in the instructions. It's nicest features shine when using the app with knit patterns, or patterns that you've taken the time to enter.
You can use a large clickable counter as you step through row instructions. It is a great app if your row instructions are short. I did find it difficult to type in long strings of stitch instructions. It would be nice if future apps included a drop and drag chart maker to make entering stitch instructions easier. However, I really like that you can break up your patterns into blocks and pieces.
There is also a fun little project timer. this way you can actually answer when someone asks you how long have you been working on that super gorgeous sweater.
DON’T BOTHER doesn’t work no response from support Try Knit Companion
This app has not worked since they came out with the iPad ios. I have messaged support many times about his with no response. TRY KNIT COMPANION INSTEAD
Why is the app not working with the new iPad ios? Neither my paid or free version works and I have patterns I can’t get to and can’t get anywhere else. Please fix this
I've had this app for quite some time, even bought the paid features. I find it very easy to open a .pdf file into it and use it quite often to knit from. I like the bar that keeps track of the rows. However, the while the bar is adjustable in size, I have not found away to get it to cover the line that I need completely. Sometimes I have to cover two lines, then remember which one I was knitting. I find it irritating that I have to tap the screen on my Ipad to get the line to move instead of being able to slide the line. Also, in the menu for the .pdf files there should be a way to rename the patterns. When you open them into the app, it doesn't always ave it with the pattern name. Usually it is just bunch of numbers. The other thing I'd like to see is a way to organize the patterns into the way I would like them, not just how they get opened into the app. With all this said, it is still a decent app but needs work.
Great potential but difficult to learn
This app has potential to be great for knitting, but it's just too difficult for me to figure out. I have gone through the tutorials and read through the topics on Ravelry, but its just too difficult for me to figure out how to accurately enter even my simple patterns into this program. Even patterns that I think I might have entered correctly, I don't trust to knit from this app for fear that ill have entered it incorrectly and thus ruin my project. I also think that for $10, you should not have to pay another $10 to get the iPhone version. The versions do not sync automatically, either. (Syncing involves uploading individual projects to the "web portal" [you can store 8 projects for free], and then manually downloading to your other device.) So whichever version you buy, plan on using that device for your knitting projects all the time. Also, if you wish to copy certain sections from a pattern to place in another pattern, plan on paying a fee each year so you can upgrade to get this "copy and paste function."
Great potential, but not a good value in my estimation. Maybe some day ill figure the app out and I can give it a better review. For now, I use it to store PDFs and highlight which row I'm on.
