Picture of How to Knit Using a Graph

I've found while knitting different images with different color yarns or knit purl stitches. I used a graph to knit the bunny on one of my other instructables. It's really helpful to have it how to have it laid out for you.
As an example I'll be making a mustache on graph paper

You'll need graph paper and a pencil and if you plan to knit what ever your making or this mustache, knitting needles and yarn.

Step 1: Draw What Your Making

Step 2: Convert to Boxes

Step 3: Mirror It
