Winstitch Tutorial (2020)| How to Export a Crochet Pattern to PDF

The WinStitch series is a short tutorial series on using the crochet graphing program called WinStitch. This tutorial focuses on exporting a crochet graph pattern to a PDF using WinStitch 2020. I created another post on doing the same thing in the 2017 version of WinStitch. There are a few differences, so if you are using the older version, check out that tutorial here.

There are two versions of WinStitch. WinStitch 2017 & WinStitch 2020. In this post I will cover the 2020 version and please visit this post for how to export a crochet graph to PDF for the 2020 version of Winstitch.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to create a PDF file of your crochet C2C written graph pattern using WinStitch 2020.
  • How to create a PDF file of your Row by Row crochet written pattern.
