Back Graph

Back

The back graph is basically the same as the front without the logo.  That means the 4 colours are 14 squares vertical and 14 squares horizontal.

 

The following graph is for the alphabet and numbers if you are adding your tracking code into the crocheting. As each tracking code is different you will have to place each letter and number into the graph yourself.  I put the trackable code in my cushion on the top half leaving one space/vertical row between each letter/number.

If you are just attaching a trackable dog tag this can be attached while you are doing the border or sewn on later.  I used the colour Midnight for the trackable number but this can be changed to any colour you want.
