After creating your chart, you can print your chart or download it as a file.
To download your chart as a file, click "Download" in the menu.
Download your chart as a PDF file to print your chart.
Do you really need to print your chart?
When working on your project, you can use the progress tracker on your computer, tablet or phone to highlight rows. Learn more.
To share your chart, you can set access to your chart to public, or share your chart privately with a limited number of users. Learn more.
Note that Google Docs doesn't support vector images.
We advise to choose Libre Office if you don't have a particular preference.
The legend (key) is the list of descriptions for each color or symbol used in your chart. You can download the legend as a separate image or add it as part of the image.
At the moment, it is not possible yet to download the legend for free form crochet charts. This feature becomes available soon.
For grid charts, you can make a selection and just download the selected area. This can be useful, for example, when publishing for a Mystery CAL / KAL / SAL.
You can customize the look and feel of the grid lines. In the menu, click "Chart settings", and navigate to the "Grid" tab.
Learn more about this feature on the helppage about the gridlines.
Choose to use vector images to get best image quality. The quality of raster images is limited. Vector files give an excelent print quality.

Split your chart over multiple pages to make your chart larger and the numbers easier to read. When downloading your chart, you can choose the number of pages to use.
Free form crochet charts are always on one page.
Need to download your chart as file type which isn't supported in Stitch Fiddle? Download your chart as SVG file and use CloudConvert.com to convert it almost anything.
For image files, you can choose the image size. By default, the image size is set to "Medium", which scales the image to a width of 1200 pixels.
Small: 600 pixels wide
Medium: 1200 pixels wide
Large: 2000 pixels wide
Choose "Custom" for more options, which lets you enter the image size manually in Inch, mm, cm or pixels. If you enter the image height, the image width is adjusted automatically. If you enter the image width, the image height is adjusted automatically.
The SVG files are fully compatible with Affinity Designer, Inkscape and Illustrator.
Objects are divided in separate layers, which lets you easily edit your chart.
For freeform crochet charts, the layers are the same as you've created them in Stitch Fiddle.
Grid charts have a fixed number of separate layers:
The layer structure lets you easily toggle layers or do further editing.
The texts and fonts can be changed: The row numbers and column numbers, and the legend, are text objects.
The symbols are "symbols" (not a font), which let's you easily exchange the SVG files with other people.
Would you like to do further editing of your chart outside Stitch Fiddle? Download your chart as SVG file and edit it in Affinity Designer, Inkscape or Illustrator. It's also possible to download color charts as Excel file.
Charts can be downloaded as many different file types.
The download options for grid charts are limited based on the grid size. This calculation is based on the total number of stitches, for example 300 x 300 = 90,000, which, for example, means that it can also be 400 x 200 = 80,000. You can also make a selection and just download the selected area. That's useful for large charts, because only that part is counted.
For freeform crochet charts, you can use as many symbols as you need, without limitations for downloading.
Work is going on behind the scenes to push the technical limits to support even larger charts and more file types. Looking for something in particular? Tell us your story.
