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.

Also comes with many handy knitting calculators and much more:

•ounces to grams
•needles to wool size
•sleeve reduction
•row increase/decrease calculator
•2 sock pattern generators

    I knit a lot. I always have some knitting with me. It's a nuisance to carry a pattern all the time, though, so usually I'm restricted to simple work. But now I have not only my pattern but also multiple row counters and other reference material. And I can download more patterns from the Web any time. It's highly customizable and full of features I've barely begun to investigate. Great app, definit

    Have been using the free/ Ad version and decided to splurge on the paid version. Cannot get data from free to import to paid... Needles and list of patterns imports but not the actual patterns. Instructions and "help" are complicated and frustrating. Going to have to start from scratch as I've already spent more than an hour on this. Other apps that I've upgraded from free to paid have seamlessl

    I absolutely love this app! I have a LOT of patterns and am in the process of copying them into the database. It is so convenient to be able to pull it all up when I am shopping. A recent Verizon update caused some issues, and the ZORAC support staff was awesome working with me to get things straightened out.

    Absolutely loved the free version, so I bought the pro version, however, it crashes constantly. It is very frustrating, if I don't rate the app it will freeze shortly after. Do too many edits and it will freeze. .. Love the program, but dislike restarting all of the time.

    Sure wish I could store the data on a storage card on thumb drive. Storing the data on the actual device is very limiting.
