@fatoldladyinpjs thanks for replying.

When you say the generators you've used haven't been reliable, what types of problems have you had?

@justplaincharlotte, cool thanks for the heads up. I'll check out the KnitWare product to see what they have to offer. It sounds like that would be more for creating a pattern from scratch correct (vs. starting from an image)?

You've got it!

Please tell me that your generator would either be used online or will cross platforms. This Mac user is hurting from lack of a usuable pattern generator!

Right now I'm targeting an online solution, with potentially an iPad app to follow. We'll see

I use Intwined Studio for charts because it allows me to draw over the graph paper and it fills in 'stitches'. Really simple, costs about $44. By the way, even with the correct scale, what looks really nice on the paper (an animal silhouette, for example), might not be as clear in knitting because of the V-shape of stitches. So I often 'correct' the chart while knitting and then make changes on paper.

Hope it helps.

I need to add my 2cents here. I am strongly wishing that someone would create a LACE chart generator for the iPad!! I use my iPad daily for knitting and this is the only thing holding me back from offering my designs.

I have tried using KnitPro and the only negative, but a big one, for me was the multiple colors showing up even with a 2-color pattern, aaarrgh .
