converting a picture to a graph

I have absolutely no idea what I am doing or how to go about converting a picture to a graph. All I know my friend wishes me to make him a very complicated blanket and I have not a clue how to do this. Please help me

Caytie,

No worries - it's easy!  Smile  Just go to the "patterns" tab on the menu, choose "create a pattern," choose the image you're going to use from your computer, and then since you're going to crochet it, in 5a I would change "Stitchboard Full Palette" to "Stitchboard Basic Palette."  The full palette is not very useful for crocheting, as generally only basic colors are available from yarn manufacturers.  The Basic palette, though, uses a minimum number of colors.

I would definitely suggest output to PDF, and then you can print it out at your convenience.  Smile

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.
