Does anyone know if there is such thing as transparent graph paper for tracing a pattern from a photo? I tried Googling it but had no luck. Thanks Guys.
Something like this? It isn't completely transparent, but designed for exactly what you want to do.
This is exactly what I had in mind- an easy way for the drawing impaired (me) to cheat, uh, I mean develop designs for color knitting.
Here is a link to a web site that creates downloadable
graph paper to your specifications in pdf form:
You can then print it out on any paper stock you choose
(or at least that is compatible with your printer).
You could also pixelate the picture on your computer then blow it up so you can see the squares.
