Knitspot Pattern Reference

Jan Hostage produced this useful reference guide to Anne Hanson’s Knitspot Shawl and Scarf patterns for the #1 Knitspot Fan group on Ravelry.

Enhanced File

Version 2: uploaded 11 January, 2009

The enhanced file has added features:

  • Metric equivalents [1]
  • Hyperlinks to the pattern source
  • Status flagging (Knitted, Purchased, Want)
  • Conditional formatting
    • Patterns Purchased but not yet knit are highlighted
    • Some zero data is formatted white to avoid clutter
  • Data validation – to allow easy entry of future patterns
  • Filtering – to aid navigation through the file

The layout is slightly different, with some combined data cells now being separated into different columns.
