KnitCompanion is a powerful app for people who knit, crochet, sew, or take part in any activity that uses patterns. Discover how you can save printer supplies; stop worrying about where you put your pattern, your counter, and your pen/pencil; and stop writing hash marks on your paper. You’ll never need to print a pattern again! With KnitCompanion you can read your pattern, highlight, zoom in and out, and track progress on charts using adjustable row/stitch markers and row/stitch counters (also linked counters—think “at the same time”). There is even support for mystery “alongs,” so you can append pages to your project. Come and explore all the features available in the KnitCompanion app!
Students will learn to use KnitCompanion to upload pdf patterns, create projects, track their progress using the sliding markers and simple counters, use project notes and timer, and link their Ravelry and Dropbox accounts to the app. Students will also receive a demo of the many additional options available with a low-cost paid subscription. By the end of class, students will have set up a project in KnitCompanion.
Students should have an Android smartphone or tablet running Android 7.0 or higher, and may wish to have paper and a pen/pencil. Ravelry and Dropbox accounts are helpful but not required.
