FAQs – Pattern Keeper


Q. What is the pattern tab used for? I don’t see any patterns.
A. The pattern section is to help you remember where your patterns are located. It can be used as a library for all of your knitting books, magazines, newsletters, etc. Documenting where that cool pattern or technique is located will help you save time. Also when you are at your favorite knitting store, you’ll know that you have a certain issue or volume of a book or magazine.

Q. How do I create a new pattern record?
A. A new pattern record is created from the main pattern screen by tapping the ‘New’ button in upper right corner. The ‘Add Pattern’ screen is then presented. Now you may enter the information that you desire.
Type in the fields you desire. Not every field must be filled. It’s up to you.
To help you remember what books or magazines you have, many knitters take a picture of the cover.
When you are finished describing your project, touch the ‘Done’ button up in the right corner. It will take you back to the main screen.

Q. Why can’t I save a pdf to KnitKeeper?
A. Currently this is not a feature of KnitKeeper. There are already many great pdf readers out there. Perhaps in the future, it will become a feature.

Q. How do I take a picture of my pattern reference?
A. Touch the camera button and then choose ‘Take Photo With Camera’. You may zoom and crop your photo. Select the ‘Use’ button if you like it.
If you accidentally chose the ‘Use’ button, but you don’t like the photo, you may choose the camera button again and the initial photo will be removed.
If you already have a photo in your photo library that you want to use, choose ‘Select Photo From Library’. Some people prefer to use iPhone’s camera app to take the photo and then select it from the library. That way the photo is saved in the Camera Roll. Knit Keeper does not automatically save the photos in the Camera Roll.

Q. What is that other icon next to the camera used for?
A. The poloroid icon is used when you desire to look at a photo that you have already taken and saved. Prior to saving the record, the background is a ball of yarn icon.

Q. I can’t seem to get rid of the keyboard. What do I do?
A. Touch somewhere on the colored background of the page. The keyboard should retract.

Q. My notes are not being saved in the Pattern notes area. What do I do?
A.¬†This was due to a bug in the code. I’m happy to report that as of version 1.0.3 it has been fixed.


One thought on “FAQs – Pattern Keeper

  1. Great thanks goes to JacquieKK!!! She found a small bug in the Pattern Keeper section that would not allow her notes to be saved.

    Actually JacquieKK, the notes have been saved all along, they just weren’t being displayed. I’m happy to report that the bug has been fixed and the KnitKeeper update 1.0.3 is in review in the AppStore.

    It shouldn’t be long until the update is available. Depending on the AppStore, it could be a few days to a few weeks.


    Version 1.0.3 is available on the AppStore
