Ok folks, I’m dipping my toes ever so slightly into knitwear design. Just for fun, at this point. I’ve created simple designs for myself before, but nothing complicated or, really, written down.
I’ve just completed a rough draft of instructions and a chart for a pair of colorwork mittens. For the charts, I used the spreadsheet software that comes with Libreoffice (a free MS Excel clone for Mac).
Having done this, I’m left with the earnest desire to see if there’s a better solution out there.
What do you like to use? Have you found knitting design software that has truly made your life easier? Do you have different software you use for different purposes?
