knitCompanion comes with free designer patterns, setup and ready to knit. You don’t need to make a purchase to use these patterns, they are for you to try out knitCompanion’s interface before committing. When you start knitCompanion you will see a Welcome Page. This page will introduce you to the designer patterns and provide some brief instructions. The Designer Patterns are already listed under Projects, just tap one and tap Copy Project. You will name your project and confirm by tapping Copy. There will be a pause while knitCompanion “unpacks” the project for you, please be patient. Then you will be taken to the main page with the project open and ready to knit!
