    I love this tutorial! However, Part 3 – Preparations Before You Begin Crocheting a Graph, will not play. There must be an error in your coding, or something. Thank you for all that you do.

    Mikey going to try my second graphcan. I only got about a third of the way done with my first before a milkshake was spilt on it and i gave up. I am going to give it ago again and was wondering if you have a limit of the number of stitches you carry yarn over/under to move the color change. I read someone where that you should start a new bobbin if it is more then 3 stitiches but didnt know what you recommend. Thanks you.

    I wanted to tell you your tutorial videos are the best videos on YouTube. I have been crocheting for 50 years and thought I could do about every thing. I do have trouble with ripple crochet so I am using your video to help me. I wanted to show you a picture of the graph an I made but I don’t know how to put a picture on here. Thank you for the great tutorials

    Thank you so much for the videos! I have hoping to learn how to crochet graphghan style for a while now and have been envious of those that could since the effect is so beautiful. I am now able to do do so thanks to your videos!!!! I have already made two sides of a pillow with our initial on one side and a fleur de lis on the other. 🙂 I am anxious to try something a bit larger next.

    Love your site! I have been attempting graphgans for a little, and this was by far the most helpful! I now want to move onto making my own chart. Quick question on the PNG blank graph you have listed above….It doesnt download for me. just gives a screen shot. Is there another link that I am missing? I have been through the list countless times, and just cant get the actual PNG file.

    Mikey, a few years ago (they go by so fast!!) you were learning and putting on you tube how to do an afghan stitch and tunisian crochet, you told some history and showed the stitch so well (slip stitch)…I had never done it before …I wanted to share that though I haven’t gotten to see this sight till today and haven’t watched the video’s yet (am excited about you having them here)…I want you to personally know that I have made 2 blankets Spiderman and wonderwoman! they fit twin size beds and would love to share photos of them with you bc you were my inspiration to doing this and my grandkids Love them! They both got them for presents and now I am onto 2 more for hubby and a son and daughter in law! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH !!!

    I want to attempt my first graph afghan, so I have been watching all the video tutorials. I have a question that might seem silly, but do you always have to start from the bottom? Can you start at the top?

      You can start on either side… not a silly question. 😀 Just note that you might like the stitches facing a certain direction… look at the stitches upside down as it may make a visual difference.

    The butterfly pattern is knitted. Do you have a tutorial on changing colors for this butterfly afghan like you do for the crocheted tutorial ?

    Okay……I am slightly intimidated by all the ideas running through my head! This tutorial is amazing (as are they all) and I am going to tackle one of these this year!! Thank you so very much!!

    I have been doing graph-ghans for some time .. they are very addicting and so fun to do! My only suggestion would be: When changing colors, I always work the tail under 6 or 7 stitches before I bring it forward. I have found that even if I do nothing else with weaving in the tail, I have never had one come undone. Although the extra weaving thru is always a good thing, I just like to secure my new color under these stitches before moving on. Happy Hooking!

    I second the motion about Mikey taking Sara’s challenge with the word chart versus counting the squares…I’ve done both in the past and prefer hers…

    You might also want to do something about the different stitches and color changes in them (sc or tunisian), just saying…

    Thanks Mikey! I have been eye-ing graph afghans for a while, debating whether or not to tackle one. These videos have really showed me how simple they are (once you know what you’re doing)! I have several projects already lined up, but hopefully now I can add a graph-ghan on to my list. (:

    P.S. Love your videos~!

    I got a little confused when you chained and started the crochet stitch on the left hand side. Can you explain that to me, I am right handed and my second row of stitches are always right to left, not left to right. Do I turn my work?

    I’d rather work from a word chart than a graph.

    Mikey, I can make you an awesome Word Chart with a butterfly and you definitely won’t be counting squares!! It’s all about Word Charts!! I’ve challenged you to try it on your page, but I guess my posts are amongst those that never get seen! Try Momma’s JAM Pack Crochet Word Charts and Ill design a butterfly you can’t resist!! NO SQUARES!!

    Here’s the one I’ve already designed and my customers have already crocheted it!!!

    Very informative, I’m looking forward to the rest of the videos in the series.

    I use the marker also, BUT what I do is one color marker for even rows and a different color marker for the even rows. It helps me remember right side from wrong side of my project.

    yay!!! I’m so excited. I have a graph I’ve been wanting to crochet, but I’ve scared myself silly trying to learn how to do it. You are the best teacher, Mikey. Thank you so much for doing this series.
