Ratings and Reviews
I love KnitsThatFit sweater and hat apps.
I’ve been using them for machine knitting for about 10 yrs. It’s so customizable that I can add dimensions to my garments. I can use any stitch pattern I like. I can make a hoodie out of a funnel neck cardigan. I can add a peplum edge to a basic pullover or add a skirt to a sleeveless drop shoulder for a sundress and so much more. It’s always in my pocket when inspiration strikes me. Love, love, love it.
Frustrating to use, but pattern looks reasonable
I had to start over 4x after entering a lot of information because the app sent me back to the main screen when I tapped the option for custom sizes. Additionally, every single time you make a change in the form, you get a pop up notification walking you through how to fill out the form. That’s fine the first time, but it gets obnoxious really quickly and it doubles the number of taps needed to do literally anything.
I suppose that’s fine if it produces a reasonable pattern, and I will be testing that soon. You only have to do it once per garment, after all. But the UI was tricky enough that it motivated me to actually write a review. For a $13 app, I expected a little more in terms of usability.
I hope some of these things can be smoothed out, because the flexibility of the customizations available looks amazing.
Things I’d change: no more pop ups with explanations (help button for each one instead?) allow saving unfinished forms for patterns (or fix the bug that deleted all my entered info), allow numerical entry instead of scrolling through numbers 1, 1.5, 2, …, and a diagram for the custom measurements (no idea what underarm length is, for example)
Developer Response ,
I am sorry that you are not happy with the app. However I think that some of your comments are unfair as the app already does what you are asking for!
I have updated the app to change the way that custom measurements are entered, so that bug has been fixed.
The pop up notifications guiding you through the settings only appear when you are creating your first pattern. Once you have successfully saved the pattern, you do not get them any more.
There are help buttons for each of the settings. There is also a settings guide that explains all of the settings. Including explanations and diagrams of what the underarm length is.
I hope you are now using the app without problems.
Work in progress
But so far the sweater pattern has been spot on
