I know I can use a cross stitch graph for an afghan but how do I go about resizing for an afghan?  Can I assume every block as two to make it wide enough?  but then I think it might be wider than tall... I think I am going to use tunisian and I am just confused on the resize aspect of a bought graph.

I suppose you would count each cross stitch as 4 tunisian stitches: a 2 by 2 square.  You could even make it bigger and do 3 by 3 squares, but that might look too pixelly.  Sorry, what I'm trying to say is you have to make it taller whenever you make it wider.  As you resize, keep the squares.... square? GAH!  I'm pretty sure that doesn't make sense Sad

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!

Actually it does, thank you.   I was hoping no one thought I was just dumb.  The graphs are never the same ratio as the finished project so I was confused.     Cheesy
