I could have sworn we had a thread going on this software; but I can't find anything except Teej's cosy pattern....

Anyway - I bought it; didn't care for it when I tried it; but decided I really should give it another chance. I will probably use it for cables, becaused cables are a royal pita to chart; but otherwise, I'm sticking with excel.

It took me about seven hours to do this doucment from my rough sketch. I usually do 150 to 250 chart rows in that length of time! !

I can see where it's good and where it would be be very helpful to people; but it just isn't "me".

I'm enjoying it. The combination of automatic chart and written instructions works wonderfully. ...and I love that I can colour things...

I am really computer retarded and have no idea what you talking about. However, this is the first time I have been able to actually see cables in a chart. They are beautiful. Congratulations.

Wow... looks fab! Whenever I have any type of cable pattern, I color code all of the charts with different highlighter colors-some charts are a toyal pain to do this with, but I like how it draws the lines... I might not even need to color code this one.

Definitely going in my Queue!

I think the cables might have been a bit less obvious if I had left in the ws rows; but yes, it does produce a nice chart! I won't quible with that, and I suspect I will keep it and use it for cable charts.

use many different programs to do charts so this is not that new.....BUT, wait til you have to add to the stitch library ! They suggest using Inkscape to draw the symbol, then open Intwine,...and the symbol is supposed to be there.....I have tried for 6 hrs....I can not get it to work . I use "Stitch painter", "Knit Visualizer", "PC Stitch"....This should not be that difficult !

Mario, Here is a link to a site that has a charting program that I used to chart my braids on. It's actually pretty good - even though it's limited right now - and I was just talking with the developer and she plans on doing more work on it in the future. Here's one of the charts that I did using it as well - it's on my blog at The link with a picture of the 12 strand chart is here - - and it allows you to define your own cables as well. I used this to define the Twist 3/4 Back/Front cables in this chart.
As I said, it is limited, but there are ways around everything and a little fiddling with it and I was able to do this. I'll have to get my PC fixed as it has a program (Stitch and Motif Maker) that I bought with Sweater wizard a few years back as well that might work for this very same thing. I love you cable chart though and will probably give that a go in the next day or two!
