KPD is a free 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
•yarn substitutions, including feet, yards, meters, ounces and grams
•abbreviations reference

    Downloaded this about a month ago and I love it. It is the only app I use every day. Makes my knitting and crocheting so much more convenient. And, shopping I don't have to worry about forgetting something I need for a project and have to go back to the store. Not that going to look at more yarn would be a bad thing.

    I love this app, but only gave it 4 stars because it would be awesome if I could store my original patterns in it, without having to put them into .pdf format first!

    I have never used a pattern. I see something I like, I either remember the pattern, or take a photo, so I can duplicate it. So far that has worked for me. I just utilize slip stitch, single, double, triple, shell stitches, granny squares and loom knitting. I don't do anything to difficult, because arthritis in my hands and I won't finish it. I'm happy with my limitations.

    I love this very handy program. Once my favorite patterns are set-up, which is time-consuming but well worth it, it's easy to find what I need for the pattern I need it for. Just so convenient! Very good utility!

    I love this app. I commute to work on the bus and like to knit and listen to my tunes while riding the bus. I use it with a Pdf reader and I can make notes right on my pattern.

    This app is awesome for knit, crochet, and other similar types of patterns. The interface takes a little bit to get used to, but it can do a lot of fantastic and helpful things.
