I can create a crochet pattern from a personal photo of your choice. Simply send me the photo and give me an idea of how large in rows you want the resulting piece to be (see “How to Order” below). The above photos show the transformation from black and white (aka grayscale) photo to 15o-row pattern image. My patterns are typically crocheted from side to side (vertically), but I can also create patterns that are crocheted from the bottom up if that is what you prefer.
Size of Finished Piece and Price
Working with a gauge of 4 rows and 4 stitches per inch and assuming the resulting piece is a perfect square (it won’t always be), the list below gives you an idea of the size of your finished piece:
- 60 to 99 rows (approx. 15″ by 15″ up to 24″ by 24″)
- 100 to 149 rows (approx 25″ by 25″ up to 37″ by 37″)
- 150 to 199 rows (approx. 38″ by 38″ up to 49″ by 49″)
- 200 or more rows (approx. 50″ by 50″ and larger)
Keep in mind that the smaller a piece is, the less detail there will be in the pattern. Therefore, pieces in the 60- to 99-row range make good closeups of faces. As the patterns get larger, your photo can contain more people and detail.

HOW TO ORDER
Send your clear, crisp photo to be converted into a pattern to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the following information:
- Whether you want a vertical (crocheted from one side of the image to the other) or horizontal (crocheted the bottom of the image to top) pattern
- The number of rows you want the pattern to be. If you want to crochet your pattern from the bottom up, specify either how many stitches wide you want it or how many rows long.
- Whether you want a grayscale or color pattern
- Your email address.
Don’t send me a payment yet. I will review the photo and email you an image of what the pattern will look like. I’ll also let you know how many stitches it will include and the approximate size of the final piece, based on a “4 rows and 4 stitches per inch” gauge.
If you are satisfied with the image, send me your payment via PayPal. My PayPal email address is email@example.com.
If you are not satisfied with the image, I’ll do one more revision based on your specifications and email it to you for approval. Once I have your approval, send me your payment, and you will have your pattern in 48 hours or less.
If after receiving your pattern, you still aren’t satisfied, I will re-do the pattern for you based on your specifications for $12.50.
Please contact me if you have questions about these custom-made crochet photo patterns or need more information.
