Knitting Charts

December 18, 2006

Hello knitters out there! I need some help making charts on the computer, and was wondering what you found was the best way. One of them is a color chart, and the other is a cableing chart. You can either e-mail me, or leave a comment. Thanks!

    I had read several posts about using Excel to produce a knitting chart. Can’t seem to find an illustrated link, although I think it was Marilyn Roberts (the knitting curmudgeon) that had one. Good luck!

    I have used Excel too – if you want – I can email you an example. Just let me know!

    There’s a guy named Gene, who knits at The Knit Shop (Southtown) a lot. I tend to see him there in the afternoons. He knits lace and makes patterns that are sold (I don’t know by what company). He might know how to use Excel for patterns. He’s a really nice guy too.

    I may have to ask him next time I’m in there. Thanks for the tip Jane.

    Quick question, I get the idea behind using Excel for knitting chart, my question is, what size do you make your cells (row height and column width) so that they are accurate when transfered to stitches? (lets say that I am doing simple intarsia and want to make sure my deisngs come out the right ratio and not skewd.)

    Lisa R. – According to a hint box in Stitch ‘N Bitch Nation, if you format all your rows to a height of 10 and the columns to a width of 1.2, the ratio should be accurate.

    Hope you don’t mind me jumping in, I just happened to have the book sitting right here! :)

    I knew I had seen it somewhere! I also found several places on the web that you can get printable paper to fill in by hand.
