First Color Portrait Graphghan!

Wow!  This one took me a little over a month. It was a special custom order from a customer, for her little girl’s first birthday party. Talk about a labor of love!  I never thought I’d be able to do anything working with 13 colors, especially for my first attempt at a full color portrait graphghan, but it wasn’t that bad.

I added a black cotton fabric to the back to hide my loose ends, and my customer was very happy with the finished product!

  1. Hello, My name is Chandra, and I love to crochet, I would like to one day (soon) make a profitable business out of it, I have friends who do very well in it, why can’t I?? hmmm, then I came across some graphghans and thought that’s it, that will be my niche, to no avail, UGH, Starting over some many times, I’m not a quitter though, I’m going to excel at this, anyway I love your work, I would like to learn how to do this right, so many sites out there. right now I’m working on a Green Bay Packers, with 6 more teams to go WHOA!!.,

    1. Hey! As long as you know how to single crochet and do color changes (whatever way you prefer), you can do graphghans! Mine come with the written row-by-row instructions, so you don’t even have to know how to read a graph. Check out my free flower pattern!

    2. I, also spent hour after hour on my first graphgan going repeatedly until on my FB page asked fir help. I didn’t realize after completing a row you flip your graphgan, turn it around and then begin to work the graphgan going in the.opposite direction.

      Its just too bad the person I purchased the graphgan from failed to note this important part in the instructions.

      I have now been able to complete my graphgan!

  2. I am absolutely in LOVE with your patterns! Have a feeling I’m gonna stay broke awhile because of buying as many as I can…
