Feature Details - Specialty Stitches

The Specialty Stitch feature of Pattern Maker allows complex stitch types to be used in a design.  These stitches are represented using lines and curves to provide the best possible graphical representation.  The following shows several examples.

Custom Stitches

The Professional Level of Pattern Maker includes a stitch editor that can be used to modify the provided stitches, as well as create additional stitches.  This editor is very much like using the normal drawing tools of Pattern Maker.   

Since many specialty stitches are represented by curved lines, the editor includes a special curve drawing tool.  This tool provides a simple, but very powerful way to create high-quality curves.  

The editor also provides a way to define stitches that can be repeated by stretching them (as illustrated above by the chain stitch).
