Stitches West had a new vendor selling an amazing knitting pattern software called "Intwined Studio".
...this is their info about it...
""Intwined Pattern Studio is pattern design software designed to be easy to use, powerful, and flexible, at the same time that it's affordably priced. Here are just a few of the many features:
* Create an entire pattern and print it or save it to PDF directly from our software.
* 80+ stitches and 40+ cables available from the default Stitch Library. (Able to add stitches, and change icons).
* Type in your pattern and generate the chart on the fly, this can handle circular and flat knitting styles. ""
I've been playing with it...you can create a chart, in colour or B&W...and it automatically creates the written instructions at the same time. If you change either the written instructions or chart, it automatically updates the other. It's SIMPLE to use, and very intuitive.
and most important...IT'S CHEAP!!!
the program costs $49.
I love it!
