I just realised today that I forgot to give you the graph I used for my avatar afghan! I designed this pattern so if you use it, I would be grateful if you link back to my blog (and also I would LOVE you to share a pic and to see what you made of it ^^)
I used a 5.5mm crochet hook with 2 strands of acrylic yarn (I used Marvel 8ply from 4 Seasons).
The colours I used were:
Black for the background (approx 8 skeins)
White for Air (approx 1 skein)
Aqua for Water (approx 1 skein)
Claret for Fire (approx 1 skein)
Green for Earth (approx 1 skein)
But of course, you can always use yarn from your stash!
So here it is, the graph I used!
You can also use the graph for cross stitch and hama beads 🙂
