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.

“It is just SUCH A BENEFIT.”
“I’m a very… sporadic knitter,” explains Judi, a retired knitter from a tech family who loves going on cruises. “I learned to knit and purl in the third grade, and I made one scarf and put knitting away until I was married.
“When I got married a made one sweater, I have no idea how, since I had no [knitting knowledge]. I then put knitting away until now [that I’m retired].
“I realized that I want to do a lot more things, but I have no idea how. I went to take a [private one-on-one] knitting lesson at my local yarn store – that cost $30 an hour. So my first lesson ended up being $75! I went one other time, and then though, ‘I can’t afford this!’
“So I started looking online and I found your site, KnitFreedom. I didn’t know what that was so I checked it out and found the Premium program. I started doing the math and realized, ‘Wow, this is cheap!’ I wanted the whole program and I thought, ‘This works out to less than $15 a month!‘
“So I did it and I can tell you I have not regretted it one bit. I can look so many things up, and on my own time, too, which is, more often than not, at two o’clock in the morning. I’m not a regular 9-5 person.
“I’ve now done two pairs of socks, and I never thought I could knit socks! I’ve also done two sweaters. When I had a problem on one of my sweaters, I contacted KnitFreedom and they walked me through the whole thing.
“I’m so happy with the program. One thing I love is there’s no pressure! When you listen to Liat start the class, she just speaks so calmly, and I’m like, ‘Okay, where’s the pressure?‘ But there’s no pressure.
“Sometimes, and I think she may do this on purpose, she makes a little mistake and then just says, ‘That’s ok, I’m going to walk you through how to fix that!’ I love that.
“And those are some of the reasons why I am so happy with and wholeheartedly recommend the Premium program. It’s just such a benefit.”
We love having you, Judi!
