Revenge of the crochet font!

One of the most agonizing things in the world is to have your computer crash.  You back up your files, put your ducks in a row, use every known virus protection, and still things slip through the cracks.  When my computer crashed, it died completely, taking every single file with it.  Some of them were recovered from a back-up drive….most were not.  One of the things I lost was the crochet font I had hand made, painstakingly.  Anyone who’s ever created a font from scratch knows just how tedious a task it is.  I’m no font genius, I’ll tell you that.  But the font I had created was workable…if not perfect.

And now, after several months of rebuilding, I have put together another crochet font which, I hope, is at least as good as the first, if not better.  It’s a true type font.  Sorry, Mac users, I don’t play dat.  Click on the link and save the file to your computer, then install it in your fonts director of windows.  This particular font uses only all the capital letters, plus small letters a-k.  Go get it!

    Sorry to hear about the computer crash and what a shame you lost all your hard work! It happened to me twice, a real nightmare.

    Anyway, thank you very much for the crochet font. Glad you could rebuild it.
    It looks really nice.

    I feel for you on your computer crash! I’m so sorry!

    However, thanks for the software! It’s great!

    PS. I have a Mac and this works just fine on it. One question, though. How do I get it to work in rounds?

    Thanks again!

    I’m glad to hear that it works on a Mac. I didn’t have access to one, so I couldn’t be sure. The font has characters in it for each symbol, and in the case of most of them, there is a 45 degree rotation on each symbol. The x looks the same in all directions, so that one is static. The others can be used up, down, right left, and halfway in between in all 4 directions. I do a lot of doily patterns, so I made sure to accomodate for that. Have fun!

    Hi! I’m an italian super crochet fan(atic)! I spent the last 3 days on google looking for a crochet font and here you are! Just a question: I’ve downloaded your font but my Mac can’t read it, it does appear in the font list but it looks like it’s empty… do you know why and/or what can I do in order to use it? Thank you!!
