I put the number of rows down the left side of a page then I can tick off as I go & it does for several hats.[I've just started #15. I'm addicted to this pattern

I checked my options, but my spreadsheet won't let me save as a PDF. I can try to save in HTML. Would that be helpful to anybody? I am not computer savvy enough to know how to convert the document to a PDF.

Hi all,

If the OP has the ability to save it as a PDF, even the Mac folks might be able to open it. It may or may not be an option in the OP's version of Excel.

Just know a little bit about Numbers/Excel issues - not a guru!

I do the same, but I use graph paper & a pencil. It's easy, really, if you make separate row entries that are the same as given in the pattern.

MarilynKnits, thanks for this. I hope you don't mind me presuming to make a graphic that people can save if Microsoft software isn't a solution for them.

Thank you for doing this. I am finding this such a helpful tool I want to share it with everybody and anybody who is interested in using it.

Thank you MarilynKnits. The 1898 hat is on my to do list. I've heard it is difficult so hopefully this will solve any problems I encounter.

Thank you, jvallas, I copied it and pasted to an email, enlarged it 50% and emailed it to myself. Can print as many copies as I need. And thank you MarilynKnits for making this.

I find that if I organize a complicated pattern it is much less stressful.

I made a line by line chart for the EZ Baby Surprise Jacket. Makes knitting it a piece of cake. Because it is copyrighted intellectual property, I am sure it would not be legal to share, so please don't ask.

I got the basic plan for the worksheet I made from a web site that has since been closed; I think it was done by Denise somebody. Also, I think Meg Swanson may have published work books helping clarify her mother's ingenious designs.

Sometimes I will rewrite a pattern that is presented in paragraph form into a line by line as a word or spreadsheet document. Seems I knit the same way I organize an IKEA furniture item with more prep work than actual knitting. Has to be what works for you in any application.

It is not that hard. Just K stitches, K 2 together & SSK decreases, and K F&B increases. I prefer doing a K B & F going through the back loop first then seguing to k through the front. I just like the look better.

It is a wonderful world for knitters now that if you have a problem with any detailed technique, there is usually a selection of You Tube video tutorials.

Using your chart now - sure makes keeping track of my rows easier! Thank you thank you thank you!

I too am a Mac user. I had no problems downloading it with your 2nd posting of links. It automatically saved in my downloads.

I was intrigued by some of the great looking 1898 hats posted here and on Ravelry. I work better keeping track line by line on projects and created a check list sheet which may help anybody who wants to make the 1898 hat and whose mind works in a way that this document would help.

I have been checking lightly in pencil as I finish a row or two so I can erase and reuse the sheet for future hats.

I downloaded in Libre Office. Anybody who can't download, let me know and I will see if I can save in a different format.

Edit update: See my reply a few messages below this one. I saved in a couple of Microsoft versions which I hope will work for everybody who is interested.

YES! A Libre Office file. Works great for me. Libre Office also reads the MS files. Lucky us, huh?

Oh yeah, good idea on the file.
