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.

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



  1. I so agree!!! I LOVE keeping my patterns on my iPad!!
    And I use goodreader to look at them so I can make notes or adjustments as needed :)

  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.

  3. This is so awesome! This is why I follow you everywhere :-)
