Intwined Pattern Studio Contest

Favor Software's Intwined Pattern Studio has been available to purchase for almost 2 weeks now. So far it has sold in 8 countries: Korea, Sweden, Germany, Ireland, England, Austrailia, Canada and the USA.

Being that it is so easy to modify the stitch sets to your liking, it lends itself well to creating mulitlingual patterns.

Very often I would rather knit from a chart. I can keep track of my progress and see what it is supposed to look like. With Intwined, besides designing, I can create and graph charts from the written text of patterns for my own personal use.
or vice versa, chart the graph symbols and receive text if charts aren't your thing.
You can go from idea to PDF without needing any other software and you don't need to take classes on how to use it in order to get a design out.

When you think that its the price of 2 skeins of yarn- the good stuff ofcourse- and that I at least spend that much and stash it, its a pretty good investment that doesn't take up closet space :0)
I am very excited to see how things go at Stitches West in less than 4 weeks.
it is very exciting to get to see atleast one crazy idea take off. :0)

I just released my first pattern with using Intwined (I write the copy in Intwined, as well, then format everything in InDesign). It's a great way to keep everything together instead of having several image docs and word docs going on at the same time.

The Jungle Cowl.

This program proved greatly easy to use. Thank you!

I have another one that I designed with Intwined. 'Melinda'

BinaryGoddess said...

Oh yeah! I should post this here right?

I used Intwined for the charts and for keeping things organized, and (blech) MS Word for the rest. Can't wait for that word processor to get kicked up a few notches :D

Oooh, I LOVE it! I just bought the software, and after a few minutes playing around I can see that this is everything Ive wanted in a knit-design-program. I will design something as soon as Im done with Sock Madness 4 (wich I plan to win, of course!)
