A QR code is a code that you can scan from any phone.
An example QR code chart looks like the image below. If you scan this code, you visit the Stitch Fiddle website. Feel free to try scanning it!
When creating the chart, choose "QR code". You are now on the page where you create your own QR code chart.
You can choose between different types of QR codes:
Text: Write any text. When someone scans the QR code with a smartphone, they will see this text.
Phone number: Enter a phone number. When someone scans the QR code, they can immediately make a phone call to this number.
E-mail address: Enter an e-mail address. When someone scans the QR code, they can send you a message.
Website: Enter a website address. When someone scans the QR code, they will visit the website.
The size of your chart depends on how much text you include in your QR code. Also, the size differs per type.
Like to reduce your QR code chart? Make your text shorter then.
Like to enlarge your QR code chart? Choose to use multiple stitches per box. When you change this setting, you'll see how large your chart becomes.
If you are going to knit your QR code chart, for example, the stitches are probably not square, but rectangular. Having a different tension or using a different gauge is fine for scanning QR codes. It will stil works just fine!
Don't have an app on your phone to scan QR codes yet? In the App Store or Play Store, search for "QR Code" and you'll find plenty of apps that can scan your QR codes.
