How to Use Crochet Graph Patterns for Beginners.

The Yarn I Used Was Knit Picks Dishie Cotton:
The Hook I Used Was a Clover G 4.00mm:
Free Graph Paper is Available Here:

1. Determine your beginning chain by looking (or counting) the total number of little boxes at the bottom of the graph. For this one it was 35. Add 1 to this number to get your chain number. 35 + 1 = 36
2. Your chain color is always the first color of the graph – on the right.
3. For a finished look to the bottom crochet into the chain on the back loop. After your chain, add color at the beginning and crochet over it into the chain.
4. You always change color in the last color of the total color group. Begin your stitch (2 loops on hook) change color and finish the stitch with the new color.
5. To keep yarn from tangling, always drop your color by the skein. It doesn’t matter if it twists on top (your yarn will twist under the stitches anyway).
6. If you are new to graph patterns, draw a circle around the stitch that you will change color in. This just reminds you not to finish the stitch.
7. First row goes from the right to left. Move up one row and this row reads from left to right. Each row on the graph is read back and forth – right to left, left to right, etc.

  • Hello Sandy, I found your video by happen chance. What a lucky find. You are a wonderful teacher. I've been crocheting for many years but I'm new to tapestry and mosaic crochet, and I'm simply in love with it. There aren't any videos on the basics of how to create your own patterns, so anything and everything you can share would be greatly appreciated.

  • Very hard to see when you are using a dark colored yarn

  • So the chain has to be a ch of 35+ 1. Right.

  • Your starting color is too dark to see the stitches.
