Pattern Software UPDATE
Hi everyone,

i was wondering if there is computer software or a website that helps you with sizing patterns. For example, I came up with a sweater for a 12 month old, but would like to expand for newborn, 6 mos, 18 mos, etc. I suppose there is some magical math formula to do this, but I would have to think that there is software out there that does this for you.

Anyone know where I could find this?

I have the Sweater wizard and love it and Knit Pix has it much cheaper. Have used it and is very easy to use.

thanks for your input! I will take a look on knit picks. The Sweater WIzard is what I was leaning towards.

Does the sweater ziward let you select various patterns, for example, I want a sweater to be crewneck, or v-neck by just typing in what I want, or it just adjust the size according to your measurements and gauge?

The sweater wizard does let you do that. It seems very cool. You can get more info on this site: http://www.software4knitting.com/psw...zard/pswiz.htm

Looks like you can do everything you can imagine, etc. I am sure its not as easy as it looks, but I am considering it!

They also have a sock wizard that you just put the shoe size in and viola! It spits out the pattern based on your gauge, yarn, etc. Pretty cool. I just haven't knit socks yet.
