Here is my latest afghan chart. I have had several request for other service afghans since I posted my Marine Corps Afghan Chart. I altered the insignia somewhat to make it easier to crochet, but I tried to stay true to the original design.
Each square on the pattern counts as a single crochet. It's a 164 stitches across and 164 rows square. The gauge of the pattern totally depends on the size yarn and hook you use. I measured my gauge for worsted weight yarn and an I hook at 4 sts and 4 rows = 1". With this gauge the afghan would measure 41" x 41". If you want to make it wider or longer, I'd add white 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.
Here is another tutorial by Interweave that I think is easier.
