Free crochet design stencil to download and enjoy
I really enjoy making up patterns, but then a couple of weeks along I forget how to do them - nightmare! I decided as an IT person I could probably do better than unpicking my finished creation to remember.
I regularly use Visio in my day to day job which is a charting tool to create flowcharts, but is it versatile enough to be used for crochet design. If you don't have Visio never fear as you can use Lucidchart (www.lucidchart.com) for free and import the Visio stencil to create your designs.
I have created symbols based on the Yarn Council guidelines, but I am no graphic designer so they might be a little different, but I guess it is OK for hobby designs.
The stencil is available for download FREE - just put a reference in your design to our website.
