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.
