KG-Chart LE for Cross Stitch

CNET Editors' review

KG-Chart LE for Cross Stitch offers you an easy way to create your own cross stitch, Hardanger embroidery, and knitting patterns. It doesn't boast a ton of extra features, but it's incredibly easy to use. You can even print your patterns for extra convenience.

KG-Chart LE for Cross Stitch lets you create custom cross stitch patterns, as well as use downloaded patterns in STH format that you find on the Internet. This light and streamlined program features a ton of drawing tools that make sketching out your patterns very easy. You can create a new chart by choosing a cross stitch option or one of many other popular options such as backstitch, straight, four-sided, and French knit. For each option you can choose to use either DMC or Danish Flower Thread palette, both available in the free version of the app. The app's layout looks a lot like Microsoft's Paint or similar programs, so figuring out how to draw takes only a few seconds, even for the uninitiated. Once you have a pattern, you can export it in many popular formats such as JPEG, PDF, and TIFF, as well as print from within the app. In the free version you can create a chart as large as 100 x 100 and then draw your pattern with tons of different colors and shapes. However, if you want to create charts as large as 2000 x 2000 and enjoy some additional color palettes, then you'll need to upgrade to the Pro version.

KG-Chart LE for Cross Stitch is really effective at giving you a solid pattern that you can put right into use. The customization and ease of use make this a great program for all cross stitchers, even those who aren't very handy with a computer.

    "Just what I was looking for!"

    January 22, 2013  |  

    Version: KG-Chart LE for Cross Stitch 1.24.02

    Pros

    The program is easy to use and allows surprisingly complete editing. Easy manipulation of colors. Includes an array of stitches (including french knots and back stitches). Completely free and no spyware or ads. You can import pictures and the results are as good or better than other free or online programs I've seen. Patterns print well and accurately. Has the entire DMC color collection (and shows if the color is now obsolete, though I don't know how recently this was updated).

    Cons

    The one downside that I've found is that the estimation of chart size is off and only displays in centimeters. For example, if you select 140 stitches at 14ct, it should be 25.4cm, but the program says it will be 50.8cm. Kind of frustrating if you don't realize it right away, but a very small flaw in an otherwise nice package.

    If I could ask for it, I'd also like other vendor palettes. It includes DMC and Danish Flower thread. Would like to see Janlynn added, but beggars can't be choosers.

    Summary

    Overall, this is completely awesome software. Would be a good download for anyone looking for a free way to design their own patterns. Hope the maker keeps it updated!
