Mary,

Welcome!  Smile

I'm not sure what's going wrong for you, but one thing I've found when making graphs is to use an image that will work as closely as a 1:1 basis as possible, meaning 1 pixel = 1 stitch.  Smile  I also look for better quality file formats, if possible.  JPG isn't a very good one; GIF or PNG are better.  Which doesn't mean you can't have a decent file in JPG format, just that for the most part JPGs aren't as good quality as GIF or PNG.

If the colors are giving you a problem, try to remember that yarn colors are very limited.  Unlike cotton floss or beads, which give hundreds of choices and many different shaded color palettes, yarn is limited to a certain number of colors per line and manufacturer.  Unfortunately, the reason manufacturers don't offer more choices is likely because it wouldn't be cost effective to, for instance, market 10 different greens, as they very likely wouldn't sell many of certain green shades.

Hope that helps!  Smile
