Explore LoveKnitting’s new app! It’s knit-tastic!
We’ve got an app! Designed by knitters, for knitters – it’s too exciting for words! Get your iPads out ready for action!
For too long, we knitters have wrestled with an endless array of pens, paper and tools in order to do what we love.
I am a woman of a certain age, and not one given to technical prowess – and until this week, when I sat down to knit, I was surrounded by the following: a ruler for reading charts, a crumpled piece of paper to write down my pattern rows and tick off as I go, the pattern I’m working from, my iPad for checking stitches and ordering yarn, and a large cup of tea.
A great deal of my knitting happens on on the go – on sofas and in bed, in cars, trains and waiting rooms, and even in the garden – so I cart this collection around with me everywhere I go.
But not any more! The clever folk here at LoveKnitting have designed an app to transform the way we knit!
Designed by knitters, for knitters!
At first glance, I was in love! You can view all the patterns you’ve downloaded in one library – enlarge the charts and text, and even slide a ruler up and down to keep a check of rows and stitches.
With the touch of your finger you can slide the ruler to the row you’re working on, and clock up stitches with the stitch counter. Genius! You can mark the stitch you’re working on too.
Use the ruler to keep track of a pattern, and use the zoom facility to enlarge text and charts!
Never lose your place working a chart again!
The easy to use pattern reader means you can work through your entire LoveKnitting pattern library row by row, with help from the zoom feature, row counter, marker, and other handy tools. I love writing on my patterns, and you can easily add notes and doodles to every pattern – and photos too!
Why is this app different?
I’ve avoided knitting apps until now because they don’t speak the language of knitters – with no easy way to access patterns and keep them current and updated as you follow them – I love the fact that I can zip in and out of a pattern and the app will remember where I am and what I’ve done! The app is currently available for iPads, but availability for iPhones and Android devices are coming soon.
It’s easy to use. I don’t want to waste time trying to make my knitting fit an app – I want an app that fits my knitting! If I can do it, you can do it!
New inspiration every month with six FREE and exclusive patterns!
Just to make it EVEN better, there are six free and exclusive patterns waiting for you when you download the app, with new patterns added every month! (This month’s patterns are fantastic and I’ve already knitted one of them. The Fittleworth Cowl by Sarah Knight – and you won’t find it anywhere else! I can’t wait to start on Tin Can Knit’s Harvest cardi next!)
Don’t wait a minute longer! Download it from the App Store!
