When I got my new tablet, I decided to look for some crochet apps to help me with keeping track of rows, patterns, and the like. So I went to the App Store and found what I was looking for and then some.
The apps I found (and use0 are My Row Counter and Crochet Creator. Since I’ve been using them for a while, I thought I would share them with you and give you my thoughts about them. Both of these crochet apps have free and paid versions.
My Row Counter
This app has options for creating crochet or knit projects. You can use it just as a row counter or you can also import the PDF pattern from Ravelry or your device and have both the row counter and the pattern right there on the same screen. It also lets you enlarge the pattern if you need the print to be larger. The main disadvantage I see with it is that when you have a pattern open as well, the row counter is pushed either to the side or the top of the screen and is small. I would prefer it to stay larger, but that’s really a minor disadvantage. I’m using the free option, which does have ads.
It has a few options for subscriptions. If you don’t like ads, you can just remove the ads for $2.99. You can subscribe one month at a time for $1.99 or $9.99 for the whole year.
If you are interested in creating your own patterns, Crochet Creator is a huge help. It gives you the option to create a square or rectangle chart or a round one. You do need to now the symbols for the various stitches to use this crochet app. The basic version only allows for use of individual stitches.
If you want to use shells or any other cluster stitches, you need to purchase one of the packages. The red package will open up some stitches and the gray package will open up more. Each package is $2.99. Purchasing the packages will not remove ads, however. That is an additional 99 cents.
I do have more crochet apps than these two, but these are the ones I use the most. They have proven to be the most helpful. After I use the others more, I will give you information on them as well.
It should be noted that these apps are both free in their basic versions THey have in-app purchases that improve their functionality.
Please note, also, that I am not an affiliate for the App Store.. These apps are ones that I have purchased myself and use frequently. I decided to share them with you in case they would help you too.
