Description

What people are saying: "StashBot is that perfect combination of grace, functionality, and ease-of-use. Behind the pretty face, though, an intelligent engine delivers numbers you can trust. Unless you're a math genius with all the charts in your mind, this is the best $5 you'll ever spend on a knitting app." - Clara Parkes, Knitter's Review "StashBot is as pretty as it is clever." - Meghan Fernandes, Pom Pom Quarterly "Yardage requirements never looked so good." - Amy Herzog, CustomFit Buy yarn....smarter. StashBot is your yarn shopping companion! When you find a yarn you can't live without, use StashBot to figure out how much to buy. StashBot will pay for itself again and again as it saves you from buying more yarn than you need you need. At the same time, it ensures you will purchase enough yarn to knit the sort of projects you like. StashBot includes yarn requirements averages for gauges 3 - 8 sts per inch / 2.5 cm. Categories include: - Vests, shrugs and sweaters (cropped, average and tunic length) in size 3 months - 62" / 157cm bust circumference. - Hats, socks, and mittens in sizes Baby, Toddler, Child, Adult & XL Adult. - Scarves, shawls, and infinity cowls in 3 typical dimensions. All yarn requirements are presented in both YARDS and METERS, and you can easily switch back and forth between imperial and metric measurements. YARN SHOPS: This is a great tool for you shop as it encourages knitters to purchase sweater quantities of yarn!

    I'm sure I'll be using this a lot with customers.. An improvement would be to add blankets/throws.
  • Waste of Money

    Don't pay $4.99 for this app, you'll just kick yourself for wasting money. I bought this app maybe 6-12 mo. ago and was immediately disappointed. It didn't take a week before I had deleted it. It has a nice aesthetic but you can find yardage estimation calculators for free both in the App Store and online. There is absolutely nothing in this app that justifies its price tag. Maybe if they added a few more useful features it might be worth paying $2, but as is, save your money.

    Love the app. Would really love to switch between knit and crochet though. Maybe afghans as an option too.
  • Such a great app

    I recommend this to my customers all the time. It's so helpful when determining how much yarn to buy. Worth the $4.99 several times over.
  • Good but not great

    This app does what it says. It does have a easy and intuitive interface. But for the price of $4.99 I hope there will be an update or maybe an extra in the future. Even if they added an accurate measuring tape as a feature. There are several other apps out there that tell you exactly the yarn requirements you will need. Some are free. So for something that cost on the higher end for an app I look forward to improvements to make this app truly special.
  • Very useful!

    This so-easy-to-use app is useful in the yarn store, to help you buy the right quantity of yarn. And, it is also useful to help you find out what sort of item you could make from yarn quantities in your stash. Clear dials and great clicky sounds make this useful app fun, too! This is well worth the price.
  • Must-have

    When the print version of Stash-Bot first came out, I thought it was a brilliant idea, but that if I had the print version it would never be in my bag when I needed it. An app version is perfect. The design is clean, simple, and very intuitive to use. It’s also lovely to look at, which is a plus! I’m about to head to a fiber festival next weekend and you can be sure this will be utilized quite a few times while I’m there. The *only* thing I would add/request is something about weight (of the yarn, in oz/grams). As a spinner, it would be awesome to plug in: I want to make a sweater, in my size, at 6 st/inch, and then get to choose from different yarn weights (in either familiar “yds/100g” increments or more accurate yards per pound (ypp)) and then have returned the weight of fiber I’d need to purchase, to spin at that grist and knit the specified item.
  • Finally !!!

    I bought this yesterday and used it today. This is such a great, useful tool! I could have used this so so long ago while I was acquiring my now unbelievably large and barely useable stash. Thankfully, I have the app now, and I suspect I'll use the heck out of it. Thank you, Hannah and Abe!
