Rally the realm…
The Game of Thrones CAL is finally here! And I can think of no better place to start than with House Stark.
My husband identifies most with the Starks. They are (for the most part) a noble, loyal, ethics- and honor-bound house with a long lineage. And whether or not we like the Stark’s house words (Winter is Coming!), sooner or later they’re always right!
I am still working on my own Stark banner, but here’s a pic for inspiration:
This PDF contains the graphs for the 50×75 banner AND the 50×50 house sigil and house words squares. The banner is spread out onto two pages (you can print, trim, and tape them together to view the whole graph), while the squares are on one page each.
EDIT: We have some lovely crafters who have offered up their time and their sanity to help provide written instructions for this CAL! You can download the complete written instructions PDF packet here.
You may notice that the row numbering style has changed from the style of our previous graphs. This is because I’m using a new graphing app–details on its wondrous powers to come!
This new app numbers every 5th row for the banner-style design, but numbers every row for the square-style design. I have not yet figured out why it does this, or if there’s a way to change this, but some numbers are better than no numbers.
However, I’m still able to add the arrows to these graphs, so yay! I’m still learning the finer traits of this new graphing app, but I can tell you that it is awesome and much easier (and more mobile!) than Microsoft Excel! (And bonus: it’s way more affordable!)
Note that these graphs are still designed to be worked starting in the lower right-hand corner. The row numbers restart the count at the corners, but you can still keep going. They’ll be correct as long as you start in the lower right-hand corner.
I’ve tried to mix up the design release so that the most popular houses (like Stark, Targaryen, and Lannister) are scattered every other week or so. This way, you’ll have a week or two for crocheting before another one of your favorites becomes available!
Time to get back to work on my Stark banner–happy crafting!
