A little more flexible

Posted 19 Jun 2014 by JC

Heads up! Stitch-Maps.com is now slightly more flexible in the knitspeak it accepts.

For example, when faced with sl1, k2tog, psso Stitch-Maps.com used to complain We don’t know what “psso” means and insist on sl1-k2tog-psso instead. Now it handles sl1, k2tog, psso, k1-f&b, yfwd, and other “aliases” for its standard abbreviations. It also recognizes other bits of phrasing, like Row 1 (right side) and repeat from * to last 3 stitches, over which it used to stumble before.

Really, this shouldn’t have a tremendous effect on anyone, other than making it a touch easier to enter stitch pattern instructions. Actually, if you do run into any hiccups – say, you receive a weird error message, or the site doesn’t accept phrasing that you think it should – please let me know!

The good news? The changes that permit this additional flexibility will make it easier for me to add support for new stitches, such as k1 wrapping yarn twice and (gasp!) 2/2 RC. Stay tuned!
