Knitting Apps


There is always information to reference or calculate in knitting projects. There are many apps that are now available to help knitters with many of the tasks that once had to be managed by making tedious calculations, spreadsheets for organizing, or were just handled by trial and error. Here are a few apps that are available for your mobile device with descriptions of what the apps do.

Button Wizard Carole Wulster created Sweater Wizard back in the 1990's, it was one of the first computer design programs written for the home knitter. Many years later, Wulster is now offering an app for the iPad or the iPhone/Ipod touch that writes instructions for buttonholes in your knitting. The user enters whether the band is horizontal or vertical, which one of three types of buttonholes they would like to create, and the information needed for the calculations (number of stitches on needles, how many buttonholes, etc.) and the Button Wizard app generates a set of instructions for you to knit your buttonhole band. Support for the app is available through the company website, which has a discussion group, manuals available for download, and finally email addresses to ask for assistance if you were unable to get the help you needed. The app is available through the iTunes app store.

Ravulous This app is for Ravelry users. It allows the user to upload photos to their Ravelry account, recive notifications when the user gets massages on the Ravelry forums, look at their queued projects, share project photos on Facebook, twitter and email, and see their yarn and needle inventory. Ravulous is not made by Ravelry itself, and requires the user also has Ravelry photo uploader. The Ravelry photo uploader is free, and is made available by Ravelry. Ravulous is available for Android through GooglePlay and the Amazon app store.

BeeCount This free Android app was written by the creator as an android program training exercise. BeeCount allows the user to keep track of counting multiple parts of multiple knitting projects. This could be useful when knitting both sleeves of a sweater or two socks a the same time. The user can enter information about rows and pattern repeats for tracking. This app is available on Googleplay. The developer can be emailed for support issues.

Do you have favorite knitting app you know about that you would like to share? Please tell us about it in the knitting forum!
