Crochet Chart ~ Maple Leaf

I had a bit of response to the crocheted maple leaf in yesterday's post. It was crocheted onto a halter top that was sold on Ebay last year. But, I still have the chart for it. In fact, I have many charts. I L.O.V.E. crocheting images. It's a bit daunting to some, but I have a little secret for you......it's really, really easy. Once you can master the yarn color change, you're good to go. Unfortunately, I'm not the best teacher. But there are a few links that may help at Crochet Pattern Central.

This graph is 30 by 30. In the halter top that I made, I used hdc (half double crochets), but you could also use sc or extended sc. If you use a dc, your image will be too long.

Please keep in mind that this is not a pattern. It is only a chart. To print it, right click your mouse on the image and choose "Print Picture".

I have a whole bunch of charts that will eventually all be posted. Keep watching!

What lovely models you have, Tara. And that new logo up top is so attractive. The maple leaf makes this perfect for Canadians.

Crocheting images is alsoone of myfavorites! But you are right; alot of people are intimidated by it. I especially love to design quilt block patterns for afghans in this technique.

Program? I don't need no steekin' program!
No, I have to make life more difficult, lol. I use a good old box of pencil crayons and some graph paper.

I'm not Canadian but do have 5 maples within my porch viewing, so I love the fall for the colors they have. Thanks for the graph, I'm making potholders to give as gifts for my fall events.
