You're creative. You don't want to use others' designs all the time. DesignKNIT lets you channel your inner pattern designer. Using DesignKNIT is easy! Touch a stitch, touch a square. Want to change the stitch? Just tap a new stitch and tap the square to place it. Tap and hold to delete the stitch.
