Graphghan Portrait Pattern Service
Linda Charles, sole proprietor of Linda’s Yarn Art creates customized graphghan portrait patterns in number format for crocheters.
Linda accepts your photography or sketches in digital format and transfers them to an actual pattern for you to follow.
Your PDF will come to you with your photograph at the top and the instructions will be provided. Depending on how complex the photo is, it can be many pages. Here’s an example of how the instructions will look:
Row 8: [144sc B]
Row 9: [8sc B], [128sc A], [8sc B]
Row 10: [8sc B], [128sc A], [8sc B]
Row 11: [8sc B], [2sc A], [124sc D], [2sc A], [8sc B]
The instructions are telling you in Row 8 that you do 144 single crochet using colour B. In row 9, it’s telling you the first 8 are single crochet using colour B, next 128 are using colour A and final 8 are using Colour B.
As you work throughout the pattern, you go line by line to get picture perfect results without having to count a graph box.
Linda’s Prices are pretty straight forward.
- Photograph – $12 USD per Pattern
- Non- Photograph Such as the Lady Bug Afghan – $10 USD per Pattern.
- Re-sellable Patterns $8.00. For example, if you submit an example like the Lady Bug Afghan and you authorize Linda that it can be put into her gallery as a choice for others to buy, it is only $8.
You can submit other ideas to Linda for consideration but be aware that if the photography or concept requires a great deal of work, she will quote you a special price.
Try A Free Example
Linda is offering you a free pattern to try.
The example lets you see how the pattern is written for you to make an informed decision. It includes basic instructions and telling you yardage required.
If you print this out, you will just follow line by line and check off the lines as you complete the project. These are much easier to follow than graphs themselves.
