    graphghan help

    hello everyone, I am starting a grahghan and need some help. I have found out how to make a swatch and figure out my guage but i am having problems with the picture i want to use. i have tried to use knitpro but no matter what i do the picture is very blurry. so then i tried stitch fiddle and the picture seems to big and very pix-elated. below is the picture that i would like to use. The throw measurements are 48x48. using my swatch 4sts= 1in. i figured i need 192 boxes to gain the width that i would like.So on top of all that i could also use some advise on how to figure out the height and how to make sure everything is centered. also if anyone one has any suggestions on how to change the font i would greatly appreciate it. thank you so much!
  2. Our new mascots, Gauge and Swatch, had a fabulous time at their first STITCHES East Knit and Crochet Show. Watch this short video and see all the trouble they caused and the crochet celebrities they got to meet.
  3. I hope this is the right place to post this. Recently, while playing around with slip stitch crochet, I came up with a new stitch and thought I'd share. I also came up with a stitch pattern using that stitch that, to me, looks quite a bit like sideways stockinette stitch. Here's my swatch: [attach]49368[/attach] This is how the stitch is made: Yarn over, insert hook, draw through a loop, then (without yarning over again) draw through the remaining two loops on the hook. It makes kind of a bump on the front side and a diagonal line on the other. It's about the same height as a single crochet stitch. To make the "sideways stockinette" stitch patern: Chain whatever number of stitches you like. ROW 1 (Wrong Side Row): Half single crochet into each chain. Chain 1, turn. ROW 2 (Right Side Row): Half single crochet into the diagonal bar underneath the front loop of the first stitch, and every stitch following. Chain 1, turn. ROW 3: Half single crochet into the back loop only (BLO) of each stitch. Chain 1, turn. Repeat rows 2 and 3 for the pattern. Remember, on wrong side rows you are crocheting into the bar underneath the front loop, and on right side rows you are crocheting into the back loop only. Block swatch when completed, if desired. And there you have it! I hope you enjoy. ***EDIT BY WILLOWDOVES*** As I suspected, I am not the first person to come up with this stitch. One of our members, Carlinda, has been using it for some time, and has used it to design some very nice patterns that are for sale at Annie's Attic --she calls it "half single crochet," which makes a lot of sense because of its similarity to half double crochet. See her post two below this for the links! ***ADMIN EDIT BY AMYS*** Bendy Carter also used this stitch back in June of 2008 in a pattern in her fiction book, Dying to Crochet. Bendy gave the stitch a different name. The stitch has also been used in many older patterns.
