Harley Davidson Emblem Chart
I found this after scouring the internet for a Harley chart. This is a free chart from Jessica Tromp. It can be found here:
Flame Chart
This was a self created chart. :) I couldn’t find any flame pattern online that I liked so I created my own. I will try to get the pattern for this up soon.
Name patterns
These were altered for intarsia and to fit rectangle sized needed from Rhonda White’s alphabet patterns.
Once all the rectangles are created, afghan is crocheted together with gray for the interior and black for the boarder.
This project from concept to gifting took me just about a year. I figure there is somewhere in the ballpark of 270 hours invested in this blanket.
