For the Monster High addict in my life...
This is my 4th graph and it was a lot less intimidating this time around! My tension still needs to be perfected but my color changes are pretty good now and I'm able to manage all the bobbins haha I can't wait to see her face when she opens it!
I have to wash and block it still but I couldn't wait to share!
- They're just stitches! You can ribbit and fix w/e you miscount! And it's just counting! Double count each row if you need too.
- Use Bobby Pins to 'secure' your yarn on the bobbin so that it can't go anywhere as soon as you're done with that color change.
- Instead of flipping your work horizontally with every row, try to set it up so that you can flip your work vertically so that you're not flopping all the bobbins from one side to the other. If you can flip vertically, all you're moving is your work from one side of the table to the other and yourself from 1 chair to another!!
I really don't have any other tips haha those are the basic things I try to keep in mind as I work on these projects! There are a few groups on Ravelry and Facebook for graphers too that have lots of talented creators of beautiful graph pieces! Don't be afraid to ask q's!
These are the other 2 large graphs that I have made;
The hummingbird graph I made for my mom as her birthday present from my boys.
I also made this graph blanket for our friends' Casey and Amanda's brand new baby girl.
