Woo hoo, then I want to teach you!  Kiss  It's easier for me to teach right-handed people.  I once tried to learn left-handed crochet to teach it to other lefties and couldn't do it.  But it's a breeze for me to teach right-handed people.  Kiss

While we don't have a specific way to make oval or round patterns at the moment, you may be able to accomplish this with an oval or round border drawn around your image.  Should any of your central (original) image overlap, you could remove the edges with a graphics program, so it looks exactly as you want the finished product to look.

If you then upload the image to make a pattern, you'd simply have to remember not to stitch the parts of the chart outside of the circle; perhaps if you were to make those parts of your chart white, where it's easy to identify where the edges are, you could then have a guide to help you stitch a circle or oval.  Smile

My name it Johanna, 

I've crochet, knitted and sewed all my life. I was around 9 when I learned to crochet by my Mother. She was so gifted with her hands so I guess I get it from her. It's sad none of my childrean can do any of these crafts. I've just started Tunisian. I love it and now want to learn how to create my own patterens so looking forward to the help from stitchboard and all the friendly people here. 

Hi, katz61 and barb7977!

Sorry about the delay.  I just upgraded both of your accounts so you can now create larger patterns.
