Your Account

You need to add an average number of stitch per row, in your global counter settings. That way we can calculate an aproximation of the number of stitches that you have knit. Learn More >

You need a working internet connection on both devices for the synchronization to happen. If offline, the app will still work and will synchronize when you come back online.

All devices need to be connected with the same account in the app. That way we can track all changes, and update your projects on all your devices.
You can check when was the device last synchronized by clicking on the 3 white dots on the top right corner of the projects list page, then synchronization.

To preserve battery and network usage, we only look for changes when you switch to the list of projects. You also need to allow a few seconds for the synchronization to happen. A message should appear telling you that synchronization is in progress.

If you create an account, all your projects will be saved. This will allow you to use the app and retrieve your projects on several devices, all synchronized. If you lose your mobile, your projects will be safe as well, you will be able to retrieve them as soon as you login with your account.

We know, subscriptions can be scary but remember you have a 7 day free trial period and you can cancel it at any time.
In order to maintain the app, fix bugs appearing with the evolution of your operating systems, new screen size… We need to work constantly on the app. Furthermore, we don’t want just to maintain it, we want to make it better, which takes time and daily work.
This cost us time, but also money (for the servers, translation and other services). We offered the app for free and without ads for a year until it reached a number of features that we consider worth a little fee (You can still use the app for free, you will just not have access to premium features). Without your contribution, we would lose money every month and probably couldn’t continue this wonderful project.
Support us and allow us to continue developing the app!

Counters

Although you can configure the counters as you like, the global counter is generaly used to follow your global progression on the item/part that you are knitting. Just increment each time you finished a row, to easily keep track of where you are in your pattern and avoid mistakes. Learn More >

If, for instance, your pattern states: knit 3 rows; knit 2 together the entire row; repeat this 4 times. You can configure a secondary counter to reset at 4, show the number of reset, and add a comment to show at row #4 that says "knit 2 together". Per default, the secondary counters are linked to the global counter. Therefore, incrementing the global counter will also increment your secondary counter. Learn More >

For instance, if your pattern says: *1 row: purl; 2 rows Stockinette stitches; 1 row 1x1 rib; 2 rows Stockinette stitches* Repeat 4 times. You can configure a secondary counter to reset at 6 (total number of rows in the sequence to repeat), show the number of reset (to stop after the 4th repetition), and add the following comments:
"purl" at row #1 ; "Stockinette" at row #2; "Stockinette" at row #3; "1x1 rib" at row #4 and "Stockinette" again at row #5 and #6. 
Per default, the secondary counters are linked to the global counter. Therefore, incrementing the global counter will also increment your secondary counter.
