Templates for Measurement Schematics

I am just about to hand off my Cropped Cardigan (crochet) Pattern to two CAL members that graciously offered to test it. I am wondering if anyone has a good source for measurement schematics? Is there a software package that has templates? In past, I have created my own (very simple) schematics in a basic graphics program. I would love to find some templates!

I hate to admit it, but I haven't made much progress on my Splendour sweater. Now that the weather is warmer, I haven't had much motivation to work with Kidsilk Haze. I guess I am suffering from sort of seasonal yarn disorder.

I think Knitware has what you're looking for. www.greatknitdesigns.com
I have the program and know the current owner. It is, IMHO, a pretty neat program. You knit a gauge swatch, enter those numbers in the program and enter your specific measurements or chose from a list of standard measurements. The program then gives you a pattern to follow and schematics with stitch and row count and inches. Depending on your pattern repeat it will allow you to make changes where your repeat will cut off. That can get a little fiddly, but at least you know it will be. I like to print the schematic and make my changes and then just follow that like a chart.

Thanks for the information. I will check it out. Can you print out the schematics with the measurements for multiple sizes? I am looking for something similar to the schematics that you might find in a pattern book or magazine.
