Not a lot of knitting has occurred this morning because I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to create a knitting chart. There are several software options if I’d like to pay for one but I’m trying to create one easily for free.
My solution was to download a knitting chart font and then use excel for the basics, save as a pdf so I can then open it in photoshop to finish it up. Whew! It was a bit of work. But, here’s the result:
You’ll have to click on it to see it in all its full-sized glory. It’s a 54 stitch panel that is centered in the front and back of the sweater. The remaining stitches are just knit in moss stitch. And, the chart for that is here:
I feel very accomplished right now for getting that chart made up. (Patting myself on the back.) Now, I’ve just got to get all of my non-knitting duties (housework and the like) out of the way so I can get back to the job of knitting this sweater. 🙂
