Heeeey!
I've been creeping on this board for a while now and finally worked up the nerve to post! (: Everyone's ideas are so inspiring and  finally got the nerve to inquire how to go about making the layout of these types of blankets! For my 1 year anniversary I want to make (without losing my mind, been there done that!) an 8-bit Captain Price blanket for the boyfriend (:. However, I have the image but am completely at a loss when it comes to making the grid and such. Please explain (if need be in small words for I confuse easily) how to make the grid and the best sizes for the squares! <3 Thanks! I will creep back here once more... (;

First decide how big you want the blanket to determine how big you want the squares. A lot of times I just grab some graph paper and some colored pencils/markers to just draw out how I want the blanket to turn out. Choose colors, then go yarn shopping. Smiley

If you post the picture we could probably get a better idea on how to help.
Ahh I wish I could post a picture but I haven't posted enough to post pictures ):. But if you google capt. price 8-bit, you can see. its like a dark mario character Cheesy!

Yay! Cheesy Another month! I'm going to try and start my 8bit Capt. Price blanket for my 1 year anniversary for my boyfriend! I think while doing that (got 6 months today to finish it) I'll attempt to make another blanket, but with scrap material (which I have A LOT of)! Cheesy
