I have just added an introductory video that takes you through the website to show you how it works: Introduction to Phrancko.com Take a look and let me know if you have any questions about it.
I have posted in other threads of this forum a sample pattern and pictures of two sweaters that were created from patterns created on this website. They were each modified and enhanced and then published in Cast On magazine. My next blog entry will show many more that started the same way. Sample Pattern and Sample sweaters
There are only two kinds of patterns available right now, a crew neck sweater and a saddle shoulder sweater. The idea of the website is to let you generate simple custom-fit plain patterns which you may choose to modify in a number of ways if you like. It can be as simple as switching yarns to produce stripes or as complex as working the sweater in Fair Isle or complex cables. But every pattern here uses a special technique that I developed for constructing set-in sleeves in the round from the top down. To learn about Phrancko's Seamless Set-in Sleeves, take a look at my latest blog entry.
Since we are still in the Beta Test Period, you may also generate patterns for free just to look at them and decide if you want to knit one. Just be sure to enter somewhat realistic measurements and gauge so a pattern can actual be generated. Don't, for instance, say the neck size is the same as the waist size. There is no way to knit such sweater! So estimate what you think might be reasonable measurements, enter just a one line description of yarn (for example, "Test Yarn") in the brand name field, enter a realistic gauge like 22 sts & 28 rows per 4", and then enter the test credit card number that is shown on the "Purchase" page. Then you will see how the website works and view a pattern in addition to the one you can see in the forum.
Let me know if that answers your questions.
