Format and size for design files
Pixel perfect, knittable files have this format:

- PNG palette image

- See table below for the size the design should have. PLEASE USE THE SIZE IN PIXEL, NOT THE SIZE of the product in cm. 1 pixel will translate to one knitted stitch, but not to 1cm in the product.

- the file should be color reduced (indexed color image). Depending on product, e.g. football scarf max. 5 colors, sweater 4 colors, design scarf 2 colors.

- Resolution: No resolution resp. standard screen resolution 72 dpi. When the image is color reduced correctly, there is no resolution anymore. It is a palette image then: one pixel then has one color (and becomes one knitted stitch).
A high resolution or larger image size does not lead to a better knitting result

One pixel in the rastered and color reduced image gives one knitted stitch in the fabric.

The design pixel size for sweaters is the maximum size for size XXL. Because of the cut, there is less space that you can actually design. Also when choosing smaller sizes.

At the top, some of the design is cut off as well, resp. may not be completly visible because of the seams at the top.
