What I'm Doing

I'm watching this video to learn some tricks on crocheting graphghans. I'm working on a small square that has a graphed picture on it to more or less get the hang of doing it before I start a big graphghan project. For me, it's slow going learning how to do it. I wonder if I'm doing it right because I have a gazillion ends. I need to get back to the ol' videos. I have a little confession to make. There is a stereotype of men not needing the directions on how to do things like how to put together kids toys on Christmas Eve. Well, I'm like that too with some things and if it takes more than a cursory reading then I tend to get frustrated. This time I will see it through! I picked a fairly simple pattern and I will do it, yes I will!

Here's the video:


  1. In all my years of crocheting, I have yet to try a graphghan. Good luck with yours. :)

  2. I too had to watch a few videos before attempting a graphghan. I made a few following a chart but found an easier way with written patterns. I make my own using GIMP and KPG software. I explain how to use on my Facebook page, Charlotte's Crochet.Good luck with your project.
