Hello! and hope to get an answer to my ?

Hello to all!

I am new to this site, but not new to crochet. I am going to attempt a "graghaghan"... my question is this... the yarn color code on my graph that I obtained from this site... What yarn company is this from? Red Heart? Caron? Lion?... I'm very confused and I need a lot of different shades and I don't want to get odd colors. I'm excited to be able to use this site for many graphs that I've been meaning to do for years and now I've gotten brave and I'm going to attempt... but first I need to know where to get the yarn! =) Thank you in advance! Denise

Welcome!  Smile

While we do have a Lion Brand Wool Ease palette, what you've probably used for your pattern is the Stitchboard Full Palette.  This has way too many colors you likely won't be able to match, which is why we developed the Stitchboard Basic Palette.  To use these simpler colors, you'll unfortunately have to regenerate the pattern, and then when you get to option 5a, change "Stitchboard Full Palette" to "Stitchboard Basic Palette."  That will give you the most basic of colors...and no searching for odd colors of yarn!  Smile
