top 5 iOS apps for knitters & crocheters

Even aside from craft store apps that give you coupons, there are tons of apps out there for knitters and crocheters.  These are my personal favorites.

Knit: a row/stitch counter that can keep up with multiple projects at once.  The developer doesn’t speak English that well, but the cuteness of the app makes up for that.

Wooly: If Ravelry had developed an app, it would be like this.  You can add projects, add stash items, and queue patterns, you can add photos (which is great if you’ve experienced the frustration of trying to add photos to Ravelry on a mobile device), check your messages, and more.  Super handy.

yarnpro ios appGranny Square (by Simply Crochet): Free granny square patterns!  A variety to choose from.

granny square ios appRaglanify:  Haven’t acually used this yet, but it will generate a custom raglan sweater pattern for you if you imput your desired measurements, gauge, etc.  It thinks of everything!

  1. I like the idea of apps but find it hard enough to keep up with blogging, I worry that having the apps would distract me even more.


  2. Raglanify sounds awesome! I’ll have to check that one out.


  3. This is super awesome!!! I was actually going to poke around for some Android platform apps too… so IF it ever happens I’ll totally link this page 😀 Thank you so much!


  4. Realize that I’m late to the party, but to let you know, can’t find Yarn Pro or Granny Square. Also disappointed that Raglinnify is for knitting! Anything similar for crochet? Thanks!
