Clear plastic overlays create pattern grids

| No Comments

Transgraph-X is the brand name of the overlays joining my collection of craft tools around 1987. They are still in my collection today.

The grids created by the overlays can be used as charted patterns for crocheted items (such as blankets and sweaters), as well as designs for filet crochet, cross-stitch, plastic canvas, embroidery, and other crafts. For crocheted items, change the yarn color when the color in the grid changes.

Since photographs are very detailed and colors change quite often, I recommend combining sections of similar colors into one color for simplicity (otherwise, there will be so many more yarn ends to tuck in!). The overlays can be placed over any design: clip art, wallpaper, carvings, children's book images,...
