    I went to the website you suggested and all I find is domain name for sale.

    I made my graph using myphotostitch.com. using the largest setting. About how big of an afgan will it turn out to be?

    Hey friends,
    Does anyone have a suggestion for matching yarn colors to the DMC colors listed on the graphs? Do you just eyeball it? Or might there be lists of corresponding colors that I just can’t find? Thanks for the resource!

    Thank you for this I have been wanting to do a picture graph afghan. One thing have found that can help keep colors straight is different colored highlighter pens. They come in several colors.

    I’m struggling with the My Photo Stitch site. I have a graphic image that I’ve edited to have only 4 colors…black, white, gray, and red. I can’t get this program to read the red. When I select a max of 4 colors, it adds a second gray. If I select 5 colors, it adds a light blue. I am really getting frustrated! Any tips??

    Do I tie off for every color change? I like doing afghans but usually do ones with stuff you sew on and I don’t know anyone who’s done graph afghans only follow pattern! So how dose it work?

    Well I know where everyone is right now as the site is giving an error saying it is over quota and try again later. I will definitely look into this as it is just what I needed to make a special afghan for my nephew. Thank you Mikey!

    My brother in law graphed a photo of his daughter by hand when she was little. Of course, he also cross stitched a six foot picture of the Copenhagen skyline! LOL! More talent in his little finger. . .

    Hello Mikey,
    I’m Lauri, I just found a site called stitchboard. It gives written pattern as well as the graph. Is there a difference between the sites?

    I can’t wait to make one of my own. I wanted to PIN this but when I try it says that the page has been “moved”. I don’t want to lose this.

    There is another free website for turning pictures into graphs for crochet…..www.stitchboard.com. I’ve used it to make some graphs and it’s fairly easy. 🙂

    Though I have been crocheting for awhile I have never learned to change colors without cutting and tying off. I want to do a graph but don’t know how to keep colors running.

    This is fab! I would love to do one for my husband of his guitar. Could it be done all double crochet instead of single? Either way gonna give it a try. Thanks Mikey!

      You can double crochet but it looks better in single or half double crochet. It also looks good using Tunisian crochet.
