Crafters Are Creating Custom Knitting Patterns in Minutes with This Game-Changing App

Do you want to expand your crafting skills but don’t know where to begin? You’ve come to the right place.

Introducing Bellish, an all-new mobile app that allows users to create their own knitting patterns for free. Although it normally takes 50+ hours for an expert to generate a custom design, the company uses “pattern engine” technology to make it happen in minutes.

Thanks to the free tool, Bellish now has a database of more than 250,000 user-generated designs, which are accompanied by interactive digital instructions. (The app only launched back in February, so this number will likely increase.)

According to a press release, “Bellish is a world first in Craft Technology, bringing the power of personalized design to knitters. At a time when millions worldwide are staying home—and embracing more mindful, stress-relieving activities—many are turning to knitting. Bellish is a free knitting pattern generator for anyone to design a unique pattern in minutes, no design skills required.”

Bellish was created by Megan Elizabeth, an experienced knitter who had countless ideas but lacked the necessary skills to develop the patterns. Elizabeth created the app to solve this issue and encourage more DIY-ers to give knitting a try.

Although Bellish is currently only available for iOS, the company uploaded 1,000+ free knitting patterns on in the meantime.

Happy knitting!
