Graph Paper


Designing knits often starts with sketching on graph paper. If you are designing stitch patterns, you want graph paper that matches your knitting gauge so that designs aren't distorted. Our custom knitter's graph paper generator will create the perfect grid. You can even include an image file.

Graph Paper for Stitch Patterns

If you are looking to draft a garment pattern, you can create graph paper with a sloper of your measurements pre-printed on it. This is great for sketching sweater designs.
