KPD is a unique and comprehensive suite of tools that has the functionality of over 20 knitting apps all in one place.

Designed for knitters & crocheters KPD catalogues PDF patterns enabling you to find patterns that match your knitting requirements and more.

One of the main unique functions is the ability to add patterns to a database to which KPD automatically pre-fills fields such as: Gender, Garment Type, Yarn Type, Yarn Weight/Length, Needles, Gauge, Rating, Notes etc. which you can edit if required.

Once you have updated a few patterns you will be able to use the Filter option to list patterns for those matching fields.

For example, if you want to knit a JUMPER for a BABY and you only have 150 grams of 4ply YARN and size 11 NEEDLES then filter to only show the patterns that match these requirements.

Database pattern records can be viewed by text or in a gallery style. Selecting a pattern opens a dialog where you can perform actions like View, Match, Edit pattern etc.

Pattern text can be viewed alongside multiple row counters and markers to highlight your progress. Pattern text can also be edited to suit your needs.

"My Yarns" enables you to catalogue your own wool stash and optionally will list yarns that are suitable for a chosen pattern or list patterns that can be completed using a particular yarn.

KPD comes with a built in bespoke web browser that enables you to download patterns directly into the app. For patterns not in PDF format you can use the built in page2pdf function to convert any web page into a PDF pattern.

•ounces to grams

    Finally. I've been a long time ravelry user and have collected hundreds of patterns across the years. I've always wanted a way to organize patterns, hooks, needles, and yarns in an app. This is wonderful. The best money I've ever spent on an app. Highly recommended for dedicated knitters and crocheters everywhere!

    Had the free version. Upgraded my phone, liked the app so I bought it to support the developer.

    I love this app. My only complaint is I have to enter all my needles hooks and yarn... I think I have too much stash.

    Absolutely the best companion for knitting and crochet. Lots of very helpful features and development team is very connected with the app community. Can't believe I ever worked with anything else! Love it!
