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

    Artist's Best Friend. Great for serious crafters or hobbiests who've amassed lots of materials, take the time to input the info, you will always know exactly what you have & what you kneed. The best feature is being able to write on the patern. Adobe Reader allows you to make handwritten notes in red, highlight in yellow. But if you download FiiNote App, you can write or draw in as many colors as

    I love this app. I have SO many patterns (42+ yrs worth) and FINALLY a way to organize. Because of the amount... is there a way that the app can be updated to allow it to search subfolders. I'm uncomfortable ... after years of sorting...simply hate to throw them all into one folder again. Also... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make a PC desktop version. Or suggest one? Lol.

    Now that the new updates have been pushed, this is now the best knitting app on the market for Android users. We now have the capability to easily work complicated patterns and track locations on charts. The tracking bars are not only resizable, but there is also the capability of changing their color for easier reading if needed. Thank you so much!
