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.

    Looking for a pattern like single crochet of bride groom silhouette

  2. Karen

    Hi Linda,
    I would like to order 2 of your patterns but I can’t get to a shopping cart.
    Is there another site I need to go to?
    I was in the Linda’s yarn art site.
    Thank you,

  3. Linda is one of the best, she lets you know how things are…… and she keeps a queue for you to see how many are ahead of you so you don’t have to keep wondering. It is a good group to belong to.

  4. Margot

    I used Linda’s service after reading about her site on The Crochet Crowd. I’ve already completed one photoghan and have started my second. Linda makes the whole process simple and I highly recommend her service to anyone looking to make a photoghan.

  5. Sue Fontes

    I have used Linda’s yarn art site and she is beyond “great”! She follows thru she checks up on you and the entire group of people in her group offer all the support you need… I would highly recommend you use her services.

    • Thanks Sue! I love seeing everyone’s work come to life! I am so happy to have the support of my “LYA” family!
