Am a newbiw to the site. I taught myself to crochet 20yrs ago. So glad i did have made a few toys. But would like to do a graph.

Welcome! Smile

My best advice is to start small...I know, small graphs aren't as appealing, but it's good practice to start small and to see what graph crochet is like before embarking on a huge project that may end up daunting.  I know that I don't like to start small, but I always regret it when I don't, like when I tried bead crochet and had so much trouble with the extra step of holding the beads, I almost gave up!  But that's when I took a step back and started small...LOL, or big, in this case Wink, with a very small, simple pattern and pony beads.  It worked!  Smile

Hi there and welcome,

I don't like the start small advice (because I'm a glutton for punishment and love a challenge), but also because I have found that if you do make a small graph, it should be really, really simple or you'll lose a lot of the detail.

Sherry,

Great advice!  I second that...a very simple small graph is best.  Smile
