We are thrilled to have knitCompanion creator Sally Holt here to tell you about her amazing app! In this demonstration video, she will take you through the main features of this sophisticated tool using a pattern from KnitFreedom as her example.
Video: Demonstration of knitCompanion Charts App
knitCompanion is a pattern-tracking app for knitters and fiber artists, which is designed to help you keep track of where you are in the pattern as you knit. Even if you put your knitting down mid-row, the app can mark the point where you stopped for you.
It also helps you keep important reference material at your fingertips. You can easily pull up the key while you're knitting, even if it's on a different page. You can flip pages of the pattern within the app without losing your place. And you can link your favorite video tutorials for tricky stitches right into the app, so you can watch them in the app while you work the stitch.
The app has intelligent chart recognition, which means you can import the chart directly from your pattern. You then have a host of special features to help you navigate it, including reminders, one-tap markers, and magic markers (which help you count stitches).
Perhaps the most exciting feature of the app is its voice control function, which means you can track your place in the pattern without ever having to put down your needles.
KnitCompanion even connects to Ravelry, so you can easily import your patterns and view them within the app.
