Graphics Studio - from picture to knitting pattern

Upgrade from earlier program

DesignaKnit overview


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.

The resulting stitch pattern can appear to contain many colours because of the careful distribution of yarns.

The photo has been converted to a stitch pattern of 140 stitches by 204 rows, using just these 3 yarn colours altogether.
