Hello fellow makers! I recently published an article on how to read a graph, and mentioned my C2C blanket size calculator in the tutorial video. I realized I didn’t have a calculator out there for Row by Row graphgans using single crochet, so it only makes sense to create one right?
The math involved in determining how big a blanket will be isn’t exactly rocket science, but it is a bit of simple algebra. I have a disdain for breaking out the excel spreadsheets I’ve created every time I want to make a project, so the next best thing is these calculators. I’ve referred back to my C2C calculator sooooooo many times.
The stitch calculator is also a good one because it lets you determine size based on a certain, sometimes complicated stitch, so check that one out too!
Check out those calculators here.
So let’s get to this!
Row by Row Graphgan Blanket Size Calculator
This calculator will work for using single crochet only. Next up will be one for working a graphgan in double crochet, which will take just a little bit more math :(, because each pixel/square of a graph = a stitch and 2 double crochet = 1 stitch… anyway, moving on…
Create a small swatch that measures at least 5″ wide & 5″ tall.
Measure how many stitches are in 4″ and how many rows are in 4″
Enter those number below – it’s as simple as that!

I hope you enjoy using this calculator and please share!
Is there a calculator you need? Let me see if I can make one for you, please leave a comment below or send me a message 🙂
