What people are saying:
"StashBot is that perfect combination of grace, functionality, and ease-of-use. Behind the pretty face, though, an intelligent engine delivers numbers you can trust. Unless you're a math genius with all the charts in your mind, this is the best $5 you'll ever spend on a knitting app."
- Clara Parkes, Knitter's Review
"StashBot is as pretty as it is clever."
- Meghan Fernandes, Pom Pom Quarterly
"Yardage requirements never looked so good."
- Amy Herzog, CustomFit

Ratings and Reviews
When the print version of Stash-Bot first came out, I thought it was a brilliant idea, but that if I had the print version it would never be in my bag when I needed it. An app version is perfect. The design is clean, simple, and very intuitive to use. It’s also lovely to look at, which is a plus! I’m about to head to a fiber festival next weekend and you can be sure this will be utilized quite a few times while I’m there.
The *only* thing I would add/request is something about weight (of the yarn, in oz/grams). As a spinner, it would be awesome to plug in: I want to make a sweater, in my size, at 6 st/inch, and then get to choose from different yarn weights (in either familiar “yds/100g” increments or more accurate yards per pound (ypp)) and then have returned the weight of fiber I’d need to purchase, to spin at that grist and knit the specified item.
Great Addition to My Knitting Apps
Thank you so much for the Stashbot app. I work at a yarn store and I can estimate yardage but this app gives me the confidence to sell the correct amount for the intended project. With Stashbot I can show the customer what is needed and how it can vary from style, size, and gauge. The absolute best part is the ability to scroll and watch the visuals change instantly. I will definitely encourage all iOS users who knit to get this app and use it every time you shop for yarn for their project in a shop or in their stash. Home run, Hannah and hubby!!!
I love this app! It's so useful for when I come across some yarn & want a rough idea of how much to purchase for different project types (I'll round up to the next full ball & add some extra for yarn-heavy stitches like cabling). This app has greatly simplified my yarn planning. It's much easier & quicker to use in an LYS than trying to navigate Ravelry's extensive yarn/pattern database before making a purchase. And, the intuitive, uncluttered, and pretty interface make it a pleasure to use.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
