How to Crochet a Photo

They are not as hard to work as you think. (Well mine aren't at least)

Even if you have never worked from a graph. Crochet a Memory can also provide an easy to follow written pattern.

There are 3 ways you can work a graph

  1. Intarsia

  2. Tapestry

  3. Cut and Tie

Intarsia Crochet - Working with multiple bobbins of individual colors. No yarn is carried behind or under the work so the picture you make looks the same on the front and the back of the piece you crochet. You will have several tails to weave in at the end of your project.

Tapestry Crochet - Working with multiple colors of yarn throughout the entire project, carrying the unused color under the work. Whether or not there are color changes in that row. If you are working with 3 or more colors in the same row then you can carry more than one yarn as needed.

Cut and Tie - I don't know if this is the official name for it, but it is what we are going to go with.

This is where you will change to the new color the pattern calls for, cut the old color and secure with a square knot. You will have to add a backing to this project.

Personally I use a combo of intarsia and tapestry crochet.

If I can carry the yarn under the work for 5 or less stitches, I will. (Tapestry)

If it is more than 5 I will pick up a new bobbin. (Intarsia)

No matter which way you decide to go with, there are several YouTube videos to help you with each technique. If you would like to view my videos you can find the links to each technique below
