I think that you're supposed to use the browse button to show the picture you're interested in. Then if you submit the picture, it will convert the picture into a chart/pattern on a graph that you can knit.

It's for converting your own pictures into color patterns for knitting.

Is there anything more important than knitting?

If you have a picture that you would like to knit...it will convert it to a graph for doing so. My friend has emailed them & they are working on updating it so that you can change gauge, etc. I can now look into my pics and choose any of my pictures and this program graphs it; it's really quite neat.

OK. I've got the idea. Artsy stuff. Maybe I'll order.

Thanks for the link- I have seen patterns to order featuring pictures of the knitters pet dog or cat that were really expensive. I bet they use this program to chart the animal that you then knit into the middle of a sweater.

It is easier to be forgiven than to receive permission.

This is really awesome. I was just talking with my husband last night about an idea for a blanket, the triforce symbol from The Legend of Zelda. The site works and I have my translated image as a PDF chart.

I tried it on a pic of my grand daughter. Was much too fuzzy.

What kind of pics does it work on best?

Could Almost do cross stitch with it...

The only problem that I can see with it is the fact that the graph has little squares instead of the rectangles you need for knitting. If you follow it as written, your design will appear squashed when knit.

I love the wall decor on the cover of KnitKnit. It made me chuckle, because as far as I can tell, it is all crocheted. Very pretty, too. Chayah in NY

My friend that showed this to me said that they are working on updates with gauge, etc...I'm sure the size of graft is one of the updates

Oh good, I can't wait for that. I have a sweater all planned and the graph turned out so well. Now I won't have to refigure it myself.

Oh, this is soooooooooooooooooo cool. I put in a quite fancy, retro geometric multicolored pattern and, POOF! It blocked it beautifully. Can't wait to knit it.

KnittingBrit, I suspect that the higher the resolution of your image, the more stitches you'll get

This really is cool. Just to test it, I put in a pic that I had graphed and knitted myself (with considerable difficulty and 2 hours of effort), and it returned a graph almost identical to the one I had done.

Thanks!

Hi all,

I am new both at the forum and knitting. I was simply looking for a way to convert images into knitting patterns and came across this forum and this topic particularly. But the thing is I'm facing some problems with the link (http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/) provided, it isn't working[:((].
Could anyone help me to convert an image, please? I need it urgently, as soon is the B-day of my best friend and I'd like to make a present myself.

Thanks in advance :)

I clicked on your link and it worked. I found that I had to install the latest Acrobat to use it.
