I love to crochet from graphs. I would make afghans for children of teddy bears, panda bears, Spiderman and had so much fun doing it, that I decided to try crocheting pictures of people from graphs.

My first one was of Elvis Presley. I seen the graph online and downloaded it and made my crocheted Elvis portrait. I was quite pleased with it and it was so much fun, so when I found this site, KnitPro Web Ap, which has free to use online software for uploading photos and turning them into graphs, I got hooked on it! I decided to find some photos that I would turn into graphs and crochet portraits from them. First I turned the photos to black and white in my photo software. I would never try to crochet a colored photo! Not at this time anyway, maybe some time in the future I will tackle one.

So here is what I have done so far. I have Elvis, Jamie (my son), John Lennon, Hank Williams Sr, Buddy Holly, and Johnny Cash.

If you are interested in crocheting from graphs, I wrote an article called
"Crochet Graph Pattern Tips".

Please note that I cannot give you a copy of my portrait patterns as I did not write them out. I just used the KnitPro Web Ap to turn a photo into a graph which I printed out. Then I used a pencil to darken in the light gray squares that I felt would look better as black and add to the completed portrait, and left the other light gray squares alone so I would know to do them in white. Then I followed along on the graph and marked off each row on the graph as I completed it. So if you want to do one yourself, just use that application with any photo to turn it into a graph, then go over it with a pencil to decide which light gray areas you want in black or white. That is unless you want to use gray yarn too, but that would be much more complicated. I commend your determination if you do decide to do so!!

I lost the photo of my Buddy Holly crocheted portrait during a website move to a different domain host and can't even find it on my computer now.
