  1. So pretty! True, I'm a bit partial here, cause I LOOOOVE foxes!

  2. I am left handed and was wondering how I can do this one.

    1. Hi Anne, you will start reading the graph from the bottom left corner and work on the diagonal until you reach the top right corner. There are video tutorials on YouTube. Just search for "How to Crochet a Graphgan with C2C Stitch (Left Handed)".

  3. I have never done a grafgan of any kind when it says the t3 oro4 orb5 is this the number of block's like t3 dose that mean do 3 blocks that color

  4. Yes, exactly! You can see the graph and compare with the written instructions. The visual is a great help.

  5. I've done several C2Cs, but have not used one for graphghans. I understand the chart and how to make each block, but, I don't see how many chains to make to begin each row. Some directions call for 5 chains, others, 6 chains. So, how many for this, and how many half dbls in each block, subsequently? Thank you. ))

    1. Hi Greemy, I am using the c2c with the hdc for all my c2c squares. You can find detailed instructions here: http://www.myhobbyiscrochet.com/p/wildlife-graphghan-cal.html

    2. ch 5 to begin. 3 hdc for each block.

  6. Just discovered your blog and have fallen in love with the Wildlife Graphghan CAL. Definitely going to give this one a go 😁

    1. Hi, I'm glad that you like my animal squares. Would love to see pictures if you'll make them. :)

  7. Hello, I would like to subscribe for this blog to obtain newest updates, therefore where can i do it please help out.

    1. When you open a page on the blog, a subscribe form should pop up. Or at the end of each blog post there a Subscribe to the FREE Newsletter link.

  8. How do you access the "print friendly version" that you spoke of in another comment?

    1. Yes, Kinga, where do you access the "print friendly version"?

  9. Hi Kinga! Did you release #16? I thought I got an email about it but can't find the email OR the pattern now! Thank you! I love these patterns!

  10. This is a gorgeous pattern. Thank you for sharing it with the world for free. I knit but do not crochet. I will learn the basics first and then come back to this hopefully soon!

    1. You're very welcome! You could use my graph for knit also. :)

  11. Replies
    1. There are general videos for the c2c method with the hdc used for the squares + crisp color changes on the Wildlife Graphghan CAL page, linked in this post.

  12. Great graphs! Do you need to block the squares before joining them together?

    1. You can gentle block them, so that they end up the same size.

  13. I was following this pattern got to row 15 but then I keep ending up with one extra teal block

    1. Hi, please check all your block colors. You have made a mistake somewhere.

  14. Do you have any videos for making each block? It would be really helpful to work along with one or two of them.
