Graph for a king size bed
August 2, 2015 at 1:13:27 AM
Hello. I have used this website to make a couple of graphs to crochet blankets. The highest width on here is 150 stitches. Does anyone know how I can make a graph for a king size bed. Thanks in advance.

Look at that smile! (Photo guaranteed unretouched)

The size of your finished item is dependent on factors like yarn, hook and tension...e.g., your gauge, in addition to the number of stitches.  So no specific number can be given to produce an exact graph for a king size bed, as it depends on a number of factors.  Using worsted weight yarn will call for more stitches than a bulky or chunky yarn, but worsted will have more color choices.

Whenever you're trying to plan for a specific result, you should definitely do a swatch and then work out the math to figure out how large your finished blanket will be, so you can be sure to produce the correct size.  Smile
