It's OK I've worked it out

Thanks. How do I keep the back tidy? So say I only need to do a couple of stitches in on colour before moving to the next how does that work?

It also doesn't just generate the graph but the stitch count per row too

Thanks, Im doing it because I can't find anything vaguely like the pattern I want so I found this site, that converts pictures to patterns. I'm not doing anything exciting, just a simple cartoon character, I'm not that brave!

Not at all helpful but I consider myself quite an experienced crocheter and I'm not brave enough to go anywhere near a graphgan!
Good luck, and make sure you come back with pics

No idea why you are making a graph are you writtung patterns? The odd book that I've used that's had graphs I have just written them out long hand so less confusing. Can you explain more?

I use style craft wool alot dk lots of similar colours

And if anyone can recommend an affordable yarn with equivalent colours to lionbrand I'd be very grateful.

I've decided to make a graphgan and I'm under no illusions this thing will take me weeks to do as I'm both a chronic procrastinator and painfully slow at crocheting. But nevertheless I've found a graph generator and I'm determined to make one. So I ask for your help on how to make the process less painful please!
