New! Caron One Pound, Caron Simply Soft and Herrschners 2-Ply Afghan palettes - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  The Herrschner's Worsted Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  We've just added the palette for Deborah Norville Everyday Yarn!  If you knit and/or crochet, this is for you.  This is a beautiful yarn with a nice feel to it, a good alternative in worsted weight acrylic!  (Thank you again to BetwixtTheStitch!)

New!  The Red Heart Super Saver Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Laughing

Welcome! Smile
If you have images you want to turn into graphs for graphghans, just go to "patterns/create a pattern" and you can upload your image to the freePatternWizard.
As for sizing to make something smaller than a normal graphghan, such as a hat or halter top, you would need to make your image that you're uploading the size of the stitches across you would need, where # of pixels across = number of stitches across. (Currently, yoiu can't set the number of rows; this will change in a later version, but for now the freePatternWizard chooses the number of rows for you to best optimize your image.) This will have to be done in a graphics program, as simply adjusting the number in the freePatternWizard without first adjusting the image may distort the image.

Thank you for fixing it. I too realize the difficulty in getting the correct value/color on screens versus the beads. Then there are all the different finishes as well. This is my first pattern I'm using this way. If you have any suggestions on how to get the best color out of a pattern, I'm all for learning. Without owning all the colors, I didn't think I'd do the best job selecting the colors myself, but I may give that a try also. Thank you

How do I get instructions for free crochet pattern titled Majestic Horse Afghan. Thanks


You definitely can work it from the bottom up, as long as you didn't rotate it.
I've never actually seen anyone work them side to side, but many people don't realie that crochet stitches are not square, so they'll use any old cross stitch graph and think it doesn't matter.
So maybe the ones you've seen that are worked side to side are people who think it doesn't matter, and don't even realize the image is a bit skewed.

Or maybe they are doing c2c?
