I recently started my first graphgan pattern. It's of a baby giraffe. I bought the pattern on etsy and it's really detailed, which is awesome since I'm new to it. My issue is somehow I've managed to mess up my rows! I'm on row 27 and should be going up, but somehow I'm going down? I counted my stitches and they match what the pattern for row 26 (18W and 8G). So I'm not sure what in the world I did to mess up the pattern direction. Since I don't know what I did to mess up I'm not sure how to fix it. I really dont want to have to rip everything out and start over. I'm hoping someone knows what I've done wrong and how to fix it. I've attached a pic of the work I've done, what the pattern reads, and a screen shot of the area I'm working on. Thanks! P.S. the W is supposed to be for white, but I'm doing a blue instead because toddlers dont do well with white.
I recently made a graphgan using Tunisian crochet but the amount of vertical distortion present was not appealing for me. I dont have this issue when doing sc crochet graphgans. I tried to do numerous swatches with a bunch of different tensions (tight, loose, super tight, etc) but they all came out closer to rectangles when the stitch count was a 10x10 square. The photo I attached was a 34x36 graph and while I still think it looks good, I would really prefer to avoid this amount of distortion for other graphs. Does anyone have any tips or links to blogs/videos that could help explain what I'm doing wrong?
Hello Everyone My name is Teena-Louise. I am from Ballwin, Missouri. I have been crocheting 3 years as a lefty. I love waffle stitch the most. I hate not being able to figure out how to add text to my waffle stitch patterns or doing graphgans in Waffle Stitch. Doesn't really help my side business goals. Recently left my job I was at part-time as a home health aide to work out of my home selling on Etsy and Facebook. Right now I only have high dollar items but researching trends and accepting custom orders as well. I love crocheting. It has got me through rough times. It helps me destress a lot. I love meeting people from my area in Saint Louis to chit chat and crochet with. Not to mention learning. I LOVE LEARNING! If there are any business owners out there I would love advice. I think everyone is great until they give me a solid reason not to. I hope to make friends on here. Ciao! I do have an Etsy shop: RoRoYourBoatCrochet and FB: Ro Ro Yo Boat Crochet (etsy totally messed up the catchiness of my business name)
