What format is the magazine?

XStitch is an interactive PDF magazine which can be read using most devices. It contains clickable links to our designers, some of which are affiliate links, as well as links to our collaborative YouTube playlist and other helpful content.

Each chart is offered in two formats – Symbols and Colour Blocks, and Symbols Only – so that you can use the one that works best for you.

Our charts use letters and numbers, rather than symbols, so you can follow them with ease. You can print out pages to follow if you like!

The legend for each pattern tells you the size, how many threads, and a fabric suggestion.

When you buy our digital issues, you will get two versions of the magazine:

  • One with double page spreads for the best reading experience.
  • One with single page spreads that can be used with the Pattern Keeper app. 

Where will I find my downloads?

I have a different question.
