    Chicago Blackhawks pattern

    Hello Everyone!
    I saw a pattern for a Chicago Blackhawks afghan
    and it was nice but not as intricate a pattern as mine.
    I made this one for my oldest son.
    It's the size of a full size bed.

    Thanks

    Thanks Cybarra, it was a lot work
    and it got pretty heavy the bigger it got.

    Irsihjl I made that blanket to be used
    but my son has it stored away,
    just like my son in law with his Marine blanket..
    It's just me but I prefer
    they actually use the things I make them.

    Now... are you a Sox or Cubs fan?
    We're strictly White Sox fans here
    but I forced myself to make 1 Cub item,
    a sunglass case. I shrunk the graph pattern for those.

    I do have the pattern for the Cubs afghan too.

    Mrs. P, I am a TOTAL die-hard Chicago Fan. Blackhawks, Cubs, White Sox, Bears and Bulls!!! My mother was from Chicago and a total sports fan. She got me hooked on Chicago as a kid and I have been a devout fan ever since. My father hated sports. When it was time for either the SuperBowl or the World Series, my mother would make a HUGE pot of vegetable soup or chili for anyone to eat whenever they wanted. Just DO NOT disturb her during the game!!!!!! My father would see the pot on the stove, look in it, and cry "OH NO!!! It's that time of year again!!!" Then he'd go hide out in the basement or go over to his friend's house for sympathy. My ex felt the same way. DO NOT disturb me during a game!--Jan

    P. S. Thank you for the patterns.

    Irish thanks for the awesome story!
    Chicago has some real die hard sports fans.
    If I find any more Chicago type patterns I'll post them here.

    Size

    Do you remember how many stitches you added to make it the size of the full-sized bed?

    Hi Anovak,
    What I did before I started, I measured the bed then laid it out on graph paper
    and I placed the pattern in the center.
    I had to be careful I had the same amount of stitches on both sides.

    I too was born and raised in Illinois, and a Chicago fan. What a wonderful job you did Mrs. P. I haven't tried doing the chart type of crocheting as of yet, but may try something simple to begin with and see if I like it.
    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Oh my goodness! Your work is so beautiful and intricate. I have not mastered the design challenge yet. I so would like to but am not sure of how to do the graphing to get the design to turn out. Maybe one day I will take the plunge. My grandson would like a sweater with a design so maybe I will have to get started on it.
