Chicago Black Hawk Afghan


I recently received an email from Kim  who asked:

"I was wondering if you are able to make other grids?  I would love to also make an afghan for my son of the Chicago Blackhawk emblem.

My son has been through a lot of health issues and recently got a tattoo of this logo.  When he heard I was making a Harley afghan for my mom and step-dad, he said he wanted a blackhawk one."


Well, here you go Kim, and I hope you son gets better soon.


THIS PATTERN IS NOW DOWNLOADABLE ON MY NEW FACEBOOK GROUP PAGE.  YOU CAN FIND ITHERE.  JUST GO TO THE FILES TAB TO DOWNLOAD.

This graph is 149 squares wide and 135 squares long.  Each square is one single crochet. With an I hook and worsted weight yarn I measured my gauge at 4 stitches = 1" 4 rows = 1", so the afghan should measure  37 1/4" x 33 3/4".

If you want to make it wider or longer, I'd add red stitches on either side of the pattern for width or more rows to the top and bottom of the pattern to make it longer.  I don't knit, but I think you could use this for a knitted afghan as well.  This chart will help you figure out the total amount of yarn you will need.

If you are new to crochet charts check out my Globe Pillow Crochet Along, it has a tutorial on how to read a chart and change yarn.  If you would rather cross stitch the details of the chart, I would crochet the major black and orange areas and then you can have a look at my Day of the Dead Banner (also below) pattern for a tutorial on how to cross stitch on single crochet. 

For other tips on how to do a charted afghan check out my Harley Davidson Afghan post here.

If you would like to see a picture of the finished afghan you can find it here.

I realize there's no way you could crochet this afghan from this tiny picture, so if you want the chart email me at crochetparfaitpg@yahoo.com.  Let me know what format you want it in.  (Excel--editable .xlsx, Adobe .pdf or picture .png,  I recommend the .xlsx or .png files because the pdf splits it up into several pages.)

Happy Hooking!
