Pattern help, new to site
July 14, 2020 at 9:28:10 AM
Greetings, I am new to the site. I would like to create a blanket out of a perler bead pattern I have a PDF for but I am not sure how I can accomplish this. I posted for help on Facebook and was directed to this site. Stitchfiddle only does small images and that's not what I want. I want to create a blanket for a person and the blanket needs to be at least 6ft horizontally. I can't attach my picture, but if I could, I would show what I mean.

Look at that smile! (Photo guaranteed unretouched)

RedLady (LOVE your name!),
Welcome! Smile
My apologies...I'm not sure what you're asking...are you saying you have a PDF with a perler bead pattern and you want to use the grid to turn it into a crochet pattern?
I'm sorry to say the freePatternWizard will only work with images, not with a premade grid. I'm not sure if it could be accomplished, since the program doesn't understand how to "read" a grid. It would confuse any gridlines for pattern elements and would really mess up the image you're trying to create.
Is there some other way to get an actual image of what you're trying to create? For example, let's say it's a picture of a rose. Could you instead find an image of a rose that looks similar to what the perler bead pattern looks like?

I'm a beading, knitting and crochet addict.  If that means I'm admitting I have a problem, then I admit to nothing. Please refrain from helping me.
