Hello, my name is Helen and I live in Denver, Colorado.  I've been crocheting off and on for 40 years.  I came across freePatternWizard as I attempted to create my own design graph. Last night I thought I had it completed, only to find freePatternWizard on this website. Halleluyah and it's free! I find crocheting very relaxing for me and so portable.  I make gifts for family member.  I can't wait to get started on my graphgan project.  This is a silly question but how many chains do I make to start my project of 150 wide x 125 high?  I look forward to reading everyones blog, tips, etc.  Thank you for this amazing website!

Look at that smile! (Photo guaranteed unretouched)

Welcome! Smile

Glad we could be of help!

If you're doing this as a standard single crochet pattern you'd chain 151...just think of this as a normal crochet pattern, where you'd need the one extra because you always skip one chain at the beginning, to turn so you're ready to start your first row. It really is a normal single crochet pattern, after all, just in graph form! So it follows all of the usual conventions, like the one extra turning chain.

You're so welcome! Smile
