Quickie Tech Tip



We've all been there.  You are headed out the door with your latest knit or crochet project AND a book, magazine, or stack of printed off pattern pages.. What a pain.  Instead of lugging that book, why not scan the pattern you are working on and store it in your smart phone?  You don't waste ink or paper by printing -AND- the pattern is super portable!  There are several apps that will let you take a picture of a document and then save it as a PDF document on your phone!  And if you have a good PDF reader on your smart phone (like Adobe), you can easily zoom in on the PDF for print that may be small.

Android:
iOS:
Please use these scanners responsibly and only scan documents you personally own.  Support our community of designers and purchase their patterns.

  2. I use an app called Evernote. You can organize your notes in workbooks. I have different categories and keep patterns in them. So I can always look up a pattern that I'm either working on or to find something new to crochet. Then I have the program on my pc and it sync's with the app. LOVE IT.
