Graphics Studio enables the conversion of standard graphic image files to DesignaKnit stitch patterns. Photographs, scans, screen shots of other software, and graphic art can all be used.
It is possible to control exactly how image colours are converted to yarn colours. Yarn colours can be picked from the image - or any shade can be specified. The number of stitches and rows and the number of yarn colours per knitted row can also be entered.

DesignaKnit now has a greatly improved method for converting photographic images to stitch patterns, capturing the original image in much better detail.
The pattern has been auto-corrected for 3-colour Jacquard knitting, and is also suitable for hand knitting without correction.
