Found – My Favorite Bowie Graphgan

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love David Bowie.

A while ago, I came across a David Bowie graphgan which I had no idea how to use but… I copied and put safely away.

Out of sight.  Out of mind.  Until I remembered it and wanted to make sure I still had it.

I spent a good portion of my morning looking for it.  To no avail!  Woe is me. (Picture me with my forearm over my forehead.)

But wait!  What is this amazing piece of equipment sitting on my desk?  Ah yes!  I have a computer with a search engine in it that can look up things!

Low and behold look what I found!

Bowie graphgan found online.

A portion of the Bowie graphgan I found online.

I’m only showing a portion of the photo because I don’t own it.  This is the link you can use to see the entire Bowie graphgan. I still don’t have a proper credit for this though.  If it’s yours please let me know.  Thanks!

Anyway, now that I found it, I have to decide how I want to recreate it.  I imagine this was intended as a cross-stitch pattern but since I don’t do cross-stitch,  I’m thinking I can make a blanket out of it with either a corner-to-corner (c2c) stitch or make a bunch of granny squares in the right colors and pixelate it.

What do you think?

I’ve got time because I’m planning this as a mid-winter project, as in… after Christmas.

Anyway, while I was searching, I also found this awesome page:

  1. Wow…that is so fabulous! 😍 That will be so much fun to see grow.
    Did you consider doing an intarsia crochet in sc? I’ve never made a graphgan, so I can’t say for sure – but that’s the way I would go…I think 😁
