Hello friends! This week I received a message from a friend who asked me how to export a C2C written pattern into a PDF file using WinStitch. This may seem like an easy task, but with WinStitch, there are a few steps you should know about. So, if you are wondering how to create a PDF of your written C2C pattern in WinStitch, wonder no more!

There are two versions of WinStitch. WinStitch 2017 & WinStitch 2020. In this post I will cover the 2017 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.
  • How to create a PDF file of your Row by Row crochet written pattern.

If you are not familiar with WinStitch, it is a graphing program used to create crochet, cross-stitch, and Tunisian crochet graphs. It’s wonderful and I love it!
