I would go to the store and buy a pad of graphing paper...the green printed kind has more guiding lines, so you probably want the white kind with 1/4" boxes. They're really cheap and you can probably get them at the grocery store.

I used Excel to chart for my brothers' Charlie Brown zigzag hat...just stet the column width & row height to the same size, and tell Page Setup that you want to print the gridlines...

OMG Mer, that article is BRILLIANT!!! I have something I want to make in a year or so, and this will help me save days, if not weeks, of frustration.
