Free registration

Your name and a valid email address are all that’s required to register a free account with Stitch-Maps.com. Once you have an account, you can contribute stitch patterns to the collection and view them as stitch maps.

Basic subscription

A basic subscription at Stitch-Maps.com comes with four additional perks:

  • For each stitch pattern, Stitch-Maps.com will keep track of your current row for you, highlighting that row and making it easier to follow.

  • You can mark your favorite stitch patterns, then view this list of favorites by selecting the “In favorites list ” checkbox on the Browse page.
  • You can specify a number of preferences that control the default behavior of the Browse page, the Contribute page, and every stitch pattern’s detail page. For example, you can specify that the Browse page should display its search results as swatch photos rather than stitch maps.
  • When contributing a stitch pattern, you can optionally mark it as “private.” No-one but you will be able to see that stitch pattern. This is handy when the copyright to a garment pattern states that you may make copies “for personal use only.”

A basic subscription costs $15 per year. New subscribers can enjoy a free, 30-day, no-obligation trial period.

Premium subscription

Designers and teachers may want to opt for premium subscriptions. They have the same features as basic subscriptions, plus two more:

  • You can export stitch maps and symbol keys as publication-quality images in PDF, EPS, and SVG formats. These vector formats print clearly at any scale, making them perfect for inclusion in knitting patterns, class handouts, and other publications. Your premium subscription also grants you the license to use these exported images in commercial publications.
  • You can mark stitch patterns as “hidden.” This is similar to marking stitch patterns as private, with one small difference: though others won’t be able to discover your hidden stitch patterns when browsing through the collection, they will be able to see a hidden stitch pattern if you provide them with a direct link, such as http://stitch-maps.com/patterns/display/subtle. You can then include links in pattern PDFs, making it possible for your customers to view the stitch maps on this site and – if they have a basic subscription – track their current rows.

A premium subscription costs $60 per year.

A fresh take on charts

Stitch maps are a new form of knitting chart that use traditional symbols in a novel way: without a grid.

The symbols within a stitch map clearly show what stitches to work. And – not being confined within grid squares – they also show which stitches of the previous row should be worked.

The end result? Charts with unparalleled fluidity, authenticity, and beauty.
