This photo morphs into …                 This beautiful crocheted portrait

I’ve been a Crochet By Numbers certified instructor since the beginning of 2013 and have really enjoyed teaching students how to create beautiful crocheted pieces based on their favorite photos.  Now I’m happy to announce that I have developed my own process of creating crochet patterns from photos that are comparable in quality to the Crochet By Numbers pieces I have created.

EASY-TO-FOLLOW PATTERNS

Yarn Over Pull Through Crochet Photo Pattern contains all of the information you’ll need to successfully crochet a finished piece. I’ll also be adding tips and resources on this blog to help you. You’ll get information to guide you in:

  • Choosing the right photo for your pattern
  • Selecting the perfect yarn colors for your pattern
  • Following the pattern instructions accurately
  • Crocheting the pattern left-handed
  • Changing colors and tying knots
  • Using intarsia crochet techniques for a clean back.

And for a one-time cost of $25,  I will be available to give you one-on-one, personalized instruction via email (videos coming soon … ) to help you work my free heart pattern.

If you have experience with graphghans, then you are one step ahead of those who have never worked a crochet photo pattern before. The transition from graphghan pattens to my patters is an easy one.

A Cornucopia of Patterns

I will be offering a full range of patterns, in both gray scale and color, at a variety of price points the hobby crocheter can easily afford.

My pre-made patterns are crocheted vertically, or from side to side. I prefer this orientation to horizontal because I think it creates a more realistic looking piece. However, if your prefer a horizontal orientation, I’d be happy to create a pattern that you can crochet from the bottom up.

Of course, the piece you crochet will not be an exact copy of the photo it’s based on because crochet stitches don’t stand on top of one another; they slant a bit to one side. Think of a painting;  the closer you stand to it, the easier it is to see individual brush strokes (stitches). As you move away from the painting, a clear image begins to emerge.

I am offering patterns in the following categories:

The free patterns will be simple ones you can use to get some practice crocheting these unique patterns. The patterns for sale section will include a selection of already-made patterns that you can purchase and receive immediately via instant download. Patterns from personal photos are the ones I create for you based on a personal photo of your choice.

COMMISSIONED CROCHET ART

And if you don’t crochet but would love to have a piece of crocheted art in your collection, I can create one for you from your personal photo. For more information on how to get a commissioned piece of crochet art, check out the details here.

Stay Tuned …

This portion of my blog is currently under construction, so be sure to come back often to see how things are progressing. I’m working as fast as I can to set everything up, but I don’t want to make any mistakes or provide an inferior product by rushing things.

And please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
