All three Knitware Design programs were discontinued by Great Knit Designs on January 1st 2015 and are no longer available. Our free email support for the programs was discontinued on 31st March 2015. All the help you could possibly need is here on our website as a series of free PDF files, and will be available indefinitely.


The Great Knit Designs website is no longer online, but you can download the three programs in demo mode from the Wayback Machine here:
BUT!! Those files can ONLY be installed on a computer running either Windows XP or Windows Vista. They are NOT compatible with Windows 7, 8 or 10 and no matter what you try you will not be able to install them on the newer systems.
If you have access to a computer running Windows XP or Vista, you can use those files on the Wayback Machine to install the programs and get them running on either of those systems, and then copy the whole installed program folder over to your newer Windows 7, 8 or 10 computer. If you already have the program installed and running on an XP or Vista computer, you can also copy the program to your newer computer. You can find the full instructions and all the other Knitware support files linked on the left of every page here on this website.
If you don’t have access to a Windows XP or Vista computer, there is absolutely no way that you can install any of the Knitware programs onto a Windows 7/8/10 computer.
All Documentation - all the guides, tutorials and support files for the Knitware programs - are linked on the left of every page on this website. There is also a Knitware Troubleshooter which contains solutions to the occasional errors and problems which may occur during either the installation or use of the Knitware programs.
