Can you crochet a granny square? Great! You’re on your way to making an awesome pixel crochet afghan.
What is pixel crochet, you ask? Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me offers this explanation, “basically a pixel crochet blanket is made up of a series of granny squares where each square represents one pixel of the picture. When joined together, the squares (pixels) make a large image.”
So for example, if you wanted to make a Lola afghan, you’d find your favorite Lola image and convert it into a chart using a tool like KnitPro 2.0. Each square in the chart you see below represents one granny square.
It’s easy and fun to do. Below are some examples of crochet pixel afghans. Click the images for charts and explanations for each project.
