Note: This page is in development, so the app isn't working yet.

Type your secret message in the text box below. Then tap or click on the "Create Pattern" button. Your message will be displayed below.

Each letter or space is represented by 8 stitches. Make sure that your project is wide enough to fit the secret message. For example the words: "Hello World" have 11 characters (5 letters + 1 space + 5 letters), so your project needs to be at least 88 stitches wide (11 characters x 8 stitches per character).
