Here is a shawl I finished yesterday, with the help of a new app for my iPad. The app is called KnitCompanion and can be found here, or on iTunes for a download. There is a Ravelry group where you can get lots of help, and it is here. I tried it out, and will definitely use it for all my pdf knitting patterns. The learning curve was fairly fast, and I went through the YouTube videos in one morning.
Now for the Holden Shawl, a free download by Mindy Wilkes found here.
KnitCompanion allows different crops and ways to put knitting instructions together in the manner YOU want, making reading instructions easier by far. Try it. You will probably like it.
