make a screen shot - on PCs there is a Print Screen button on your keyboard. When you press it it copies a screen shot to your clipboard. From there you can use paste to paste into a document that can accept images, like Word or Paint. In Paint you can crop out the bits you don't want. Here is link to info about the Print Screen key

I am having a difficult time with your program. I can't get it to print. Is there something I am doing wrong? Help!


I would follow the screen shot route I outlined before and print it from the application you paste it into. Seems to depend on the browser whether it will print directly or not :(


Jacquie, Your Knitting Chart Maker program is just what I've been looking for! However I can't figure out how to move around. I created rather large grid (119 stitches, 59 rows) and all I can see is the top left corner. Please advise! Otherwise it is cool and awesome! ~Lorie


Sorry about that. I made it so the chart would fit on the screen for screen shots. Have you tried making the individual stitch size smaller so more fits in the window? Then you can tale a screen shot, paste it into a document and then resize it there. Hope this helps


Came across the Chart Maker while looking for something to help me chart a design for the Masters Hand Knitter program. Everything I found was so expensive until I found this. Thank you so much. I know what a tremendous amount of work it is to program an application.


Thank you! Good luck with your Master Hand Knitter program!


I liked your site, you are very interesting to write. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


how do I download it to my computer?


I just saved a pattern and I don't know where it went. How do I open it back up?


You write well will be waiting for your new publications.


Hi Merry Christmas and Happy New Year


Hi Merry Christmas and Happy New Year


Hi Merry Christmas and Happy New Year


With the new 2011. Year! Congratulations.


The program is great but how do you get it to print?


You will need to take a screen shot and print that. If you need help making a screen shot which depends on what operating system you are using look here or here

Hi Jacquie...

Your chartmaker is just awesome! Great work.
Thanks a lot! I was working in Word and Photoshop, but that's a drama!


Hi, I really need idiosynchrocies, I would like to know how to create new lace symbols and upload them in the "Knitting Chart Maker"

sk2po = slip 1 stitch, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over (2 stitches decreased)

and so on.



I am enjoying creating your charts for my patterns. I can't find a symbol for SKP. I did find one for S2KP. How can I put the SKP into my chart?

Hi, it is a really nice tool, but I have one problem. What do I do when I want a large scale grid to show a whole top? I put the grid to fx 79 x 99 sts, but I can only see the top corner of the chart and can't navigate to get to the buttom of the chart to begin designing.


If you have a PC (sorry it doesn't work on a mac) you can download a stand alone version that will let you make the grid as big as you like and has a few more features. The link is Chart Magic under Resources in the right hand sidebar.
Alternatively with the web version you can either make the grid have smaller cells so you can fit more on, or split your pattern into several sections.


Thank you so much for the chart software --It's GREAT!

I was using your chart maker, had spent the last hour working on my chart, which was only displaying rows 13-40, and I was trying to get it to display the whole chart. I clicked on "frog" and it deleted the whole damn thing, which is apparently irreversible.
Why would you make such a function irreversible? That's a serious problem. Also, it'd be great if one could see the entire chart. Now to start all over... :(
