Given my horrible handwriting and my even more horrible, uneven charting, I really need a crochet charts software: an app or software that will allow me to chart my crochet stitches. (If you were looking for software that would actually crochet for you – then nope, this is not it! LOL!)
This post is but an pointer to Crochet Charts software. Mainly I want to tell you where you can find it (as it is kind of hidden at the moment) should you want to give it a go.
I hope to be writing up more about this software (if it works out good) when I have had a chance to work more with it.
Where to find Crochet Charts software? – Windows
Crochet Charts software is created by Stitch Works. However at this time of writing (27 Nov, 2016), if you go to the main site, you will only see Crochet Charts v1.2 with a Crochet Charts download version 1.2.0 for Windows Vista /7/8. There is no download for Mac. But there is a version for Mac available.
Where to find Crochet Charts software? – Mac OS X
To get Crochet Chart software for Mac, at the moment, the only place I could find it (and that was purely by good luck) is via Ravelry site. (You need to be a member but that is ok as it is free to join Ravely).
For those of you Mac users (with OS X operating system) who have a problem getting it at the link above, you can try to get the software (.dmg) directly from https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7CaX7Dz9k8GSGxlRG5JNm1XNnM/view
The above screen is what you might see. Just click the download button. Then install software as per normal. (For brevity, I will assume you know how to install software on your Mac).
Good luck with your crochet charting. If you are trying it out and would like to share your experience, please leave a comment below. If you are already an experienced Crochet Charts software user, please feel free to share your tips and advice. Thank you!
