I get asked this a LOT! I'm sorry, but this is my full time job. I really don't have time to "train the competition" so to speak. All I can say is GOOGLE! There are a lot of resources out there.
Another question I get asked a lot. I'm sorry but I'm unable to do this. As stated the word charts take 3-6 hours to complete. I would be unable to sell a word chart for someone else's graph in my shop so if I charged an hourly rate it would make the pattern too expensive.
There are a couple of ways to vary the size of afghans using C2C. There is standard C2C which uses dc, mini C2C which uses hdc and micro C2C which uses sc. You can also vary your hook size and your yarn weight. If none of these work for you, you can submit a request at https://thecrochetcouch.com/requests - Please submit the request BEFORE you purchase as there is no guarantees that your size request can be done.
While all graphs "can" be done in sc or c2c or even tss......size is a big consideration. My gauge for C2C is 8" for 10 rows.....gauge for mini C2C is 6" for 10 rows....gauge for sc and tss is 3" per row.
So a graph that is made for C2C "can" be done in sc but it will be less than half the size stated. You are welcome to submit a request for a c2c to be converted to sc but please realize you will lose a lot of the detail. Requests can be submitted here: https://thecrochetcouch.com/requests
Although we appreciate that you like our graph/pattern format we absolutely can not do this. No, not even if you pay us :(
We can not work on another designer's graph and then sell it to you. First....you would have to share the pattern with us and that is not permitted by most designers. Second....we couldn't sell that pattern in our shop because it's not ours so it wouldn't be financially viable for us to work on it.
