    • Standard Garment Styling

      • Choose from standard sizes or custom sizing
      • Allows you to tweak the shapes in various ways, tweak neckline, ribs, sleeves
      • Shows you where to measure, and where to add or subtract ease
    • Original Pattern Drafting (Not included in the Standard version)

      • Once you tweak the pattern in Standard shaping, you can open the pieces in original shaping for further tweaking
      • Oh my! You can tweak and tweak the shape so much here. You can split a piece, add seams, resize, add points, and push the limits to any pattern shape
      • I'll split a front, to create a yoke, then add fullness to the bottom piece, change length to become a coat or a dress.
      • You can add pieces, pockets, embellishments, sashes, all then can be integrated with the stitch design
      • One of my favorite things is to create sleeves that are knit both from the cuff to the cap AND from the cap to the cuff.
        • The sleeves that are from cuff to cap are knit normally
        • But sleeves knit from cap to cuff, I join the shoulder, then hang the armhole on the machine and knit the cap to the cuff
        • This lets me create a sweater that comes off the machine in one piece. Then I seam sleeve cuff to hip/waistband rib
    • Stitch Designer

      • Stitch designer is the paint program part
      • Using the various tools, tiling, zoom, repeats, color shuffle, and suchlike, you paint a stitch pattern
      • Designaknit gives you full control over every aspect of stitch design
    • DesignaKnit Graphics Studio - convert graphics from other sources into stitch patterns

      • Scan a chart from a knitting pattern; import a chart from an online free pattern, and DesignaKnit digitizes it, makes it a computer knitable design. Export as .pat, .stp, .bro or other formats.
      • Have a picture your child drew, friend created, or other public domain source? Designaknit will digitize it to be computer knitable, too!
      • Have a picture or chart that is too big or too small? DesignaKnit resizes to fit your sweater
      • You can also do fun things like skew, stretch, and squash pictures for different effects.
    • Print a variety of charts, diagrams and templates

      • Print out the shape schematic/chart for shaping. For hand knit garments. For times when there is no power available.
