A Graphghan is working from a chart to create a picture within a piece of crochet. It can be done with Granny Squares, Bobbles and the popular C2C stitch.
So, off I went, opened my Cross-Stitch program (did you know I used to design the odd Cross-Stitch pattern) and designed what I thought would be a workable pattern.
An Owl, everyone loves owls don't they?
I grabbed some yarn and first of all I weighed it, after all if I was going to run a workshop I would need to know how much yarn everyone would need.
Then I started hooking away merrily.
Well before this point I realised that this was not going to be a workable class, it was taking me far too long so would take students even longer.
I finished it anyway having spend over 6 hours on it!
Still, it worked out nice, and when I make a few more it will tile together to make a fun blanket.
Feel free to use the chart above if you would like to make your own, but I would appreciate it if you would credit me when you do :)
And, back to the cross-stitch programme to create a simpler design :)
