Knit Mate

Knit Mate

NT Hazlett

Knit Mate makes creating knitting, crochet, and cross stitch patterns simple. I have even heard of people using it for beading. Leave a review and tell people how it makes your crafting life easier!

Convert an image with a range of options including:

- Black & White (2 tone) with white balance.
- Grayscale and Full Color, both with the ability to adjust the quality / number of colors present.
- Ability to apply a hue to the overall pattern.
- Sizes up to 512 x 512 stitches only for patterns generated from an image although more stitches can be added after the generation.
- Adjustable ratio from 1:1 to 17:10 so the knitted / crotched / cross-stitched result looks like the image in question.


Edit the pattern with ease:

- Copy / Paste functionality with ability to remain inside the current bounds or add stitches.
- Change all occurrences of a color with a second.
- Lock the scrolling and you can draw to the canvas.
- Change selected areas to a different color.
- Multiple different stitch icons for added detail to describe your pattern.


Range of export options available:

- Raster (fast) and Vector (quality) PDF files available, along with separate PNG images which are smaller and higher quality than jpegs for the grid based patterns.
- Each color can be automatically numbered, both on the pattern and a legend for a quick reference between similar shades.
- Stitch numbers can be included in PDFs.


I hope you enjoy using Knit Mate and find it useful for crafting your designs. I love hearing how people use Knit Mate and am always open to ideas as to how it could be improved.

Knitamus knitting project manager connects to Ravelry

Knitamus knitting project manager connects to Ravelry

What There's Time For LLC

A knitter’s best friend. Your notes and chart positions (even repeats!) are easily tied to the nice big counter. Your Ravelry projects page stay up to date effortlessly, since Knitamus automatically creates your new projects on Ravelry and updates changes you make to your photos, notes, title, and progress.

Knitamus no longer requires a subscription. Subscriptions are still available in the store to support older versions of the app, but you will not be asked to purchase them. If you have already purchased a subscription, thank you very much for your support — you will automatically receive advanced features when they are added in the future.

Knitamus will keep track of your place on a PDF page or photo for easy chart and row-by-row instruction highlighting. The chart view will even notice when you’ve gone back to work a section again, making repeats a breeze.

Import any PDF pattern you like, or take a photo of a printed pattern you own.

I hope you enjoy knitting with Knitamus! Help is available in the app via links to my website, the Knitphisticate group on Ravelry, and email.

Knitamus now includes an Apple Watch extension. On the watch, you can work on your most recent works in progress, using the counter and viewing and adding text notes.

Knitting Buddy

Knitting Buddy

Colorwork Apps

Knitting Buddy is an all-in-one knitting and crochet project tracker that allows you to track multiple knitting or crochet projects. Knitting Buddy has a row counter, repeat counter, project timer, notes pages, and it even displays your knitting pattern on the row counter page! In addition to tracking projects, the app allows you to track your needles, hooks, and your yarn stash.

Knitting Buddy isn't your standard knitting row counter -- it is a true knitting and crochet project tracker. Here are more details about the features of Knitting Buddy:

MULTIPLE PROJECT SUPPORT: No limit to the number of knitting or crochet projects that you can track. Each project has individualized settings.

ROW COUNTER: Track the current row of your knitting or crochet project. The row numbers are displayed nice and big on the main page. Increase (or decrease) the row number by pushing on an actual "button" on a knit background.

REPEAT COUNTER: Track the current repeat row, and optionally link the repeat counter to the row counter. You can specify the number of repeat rows on the project settings page.

DISPLAY PATTERN: Take a screen shot of your knitting pattern and display it on the main project page. This feature is super handy as it eliminates the need to switch between applications or to carry a paper copy of your pattern.

NEEDLE/HOOK TRACKER / LOG: Track all of your knitting needles. The log displays US, metric, and UK sizes, and allows you to track needle length, material, type, and whether or not the needle is in use.

PROJECT TIMER: Ever wonder how long it actually takes to complete a knitting or crochet project? Use the project timer to track the time it takes to complete each project. Each project has an individual timer that must be manually started/stopped.

NOTES PAGE: Track all of the project's notes, such as yarn, yarn weight, needles, gauge, and other notes. Please email the developer if you have additional items that you would like to track!

PROJECT SETTINGS: Completely customize your Knitting Buddy experience. The screen can be tailored to according to your preferences, such as showing or hiding features such as repeat rows, knitting pattern, project timer, and project progress.

TRACK PROGRESS: Set the total number of rows for your knitting project, and Knitting Buddy will track your percent complete.

KNITTING NEEDLE AND CROCHET HOOK SIZE CHARTS: Convert needle sizes between metric, U.S. sizes, and U.K. sizes and crochet hooks between metric, numeric, and letter.

YARN CHARTS: Helpful data to convert different sizes of yarn.

SOCK CHARTS: Common foot sixes for men, women, and children!
