Baltimore Ravens graph

Poe, the official mascot of the Baltimore Ravens, looks pretty fierce in this graph of the NFL team's logo.  When not cheering on his favorite team in purple, Poe enjoys hugging children in hospitals, visiting birthday parties, and bringing fun to area schools!  Get him on the home field, though, and he'll tell you to "play like a raven!" 

Crochet this afghan using an H hook and 2 dc per graph square to get a twin-mattress-top sized throw.  To make it a bedspread, add several rows of dc border in the colors used in the main part of the blanket. To get a smaller sized throw, use a J hook and increase the rows by 15 on each side and 5 on top and bottom.  Use 1 sc per graph square.  To get a pdf of this graph, send an email to kendrascrochet@gmail.com with "Baltimore Ravens" in the subject line.  Any questions should be in the body of the email.   Leave your thoughts in the comments below and please click the share buttons, but remember to credit me with the design.  I do make items to sell, also, so if you'd like me to make it for you, contact me at the above email about prices and shipping.

Oakland Raiders

This NFL team hails from California and has a rather fiddly design in the middle (look at the detail in the face!) so I'd recommend starting from the long side when you crochet this one.  Use a J hook and 1 sc per graph square to get a small throw, or use an H hook and 2 dc per graph square to get a twin size bedspread. Email me at kendrascrochet@gmail.com for the pdf with "Oakland Raiders" in the subject line and any questions in the body of the email.  If you've made this graph please email me a photo and maybe I'll feature you on my Facebook page or show it off here!  Alternatively, you can post it to Instagram and tag #kendrascrochetedcreations and I'll give you a shoutout in thanks.

Nebraska Cornhuskers

This college football team graph is very simple. Other versions I've seen wouldn't translate quite as well to graph squares so I chose just the Nebraska N to represent this team.  Using 2 dc per graph square and an H hook, you should get an afghan the size of a twin mattress top, larger if you decide to put a dc border around it. To make a 4 x 5 ft throw, use a J hook, 1 sc per graph square, and increase the rows by 5 on each side and 15 on top and bottom. Leave your thoughts on the design below in the comments section, and please share using the buttons below, but remember to credit me with the design! 

If you want a pdf of this graph, please email me at kendrascrochet@gmail.com for your copy, with "Nebraska Cornhuskers" in the subject line.  Any questions should be put in the body of your email.

Michigan Wolverines

The University of Michigan has a special place in my heart.  Michigan is my home state, I have a cousin in attendance at U of M, and my brother got his kidney/pancreas transplant at the hospital there, which U.S. News and World and Report ranks at number one in Michigan, and number 6 nationally! Go Blue!

This graph is 90 by 120 squares, which, when using an H hook and 2 dc per graph square, will give you a twin-mattress-top-sized throw. Due to the nature of the logo in the middle, it will be finicky to crochet from the short side, so I'd suggest working it from the long side instead to avoid the inevitable tangles occurring in the middle. The intarsia crochet method I use also keeps the colors from showing through between the letters like they would with tapestry crochet.  If you'd like this graph, please email me for a copy at kendrascrochet@gmail.com with "Michigan Wolverines graph" in the subject line.  Any questions should be in the body of the email.

Iowa Hawkeyes

Herky the Hawk is the University of Iowa's mascot.  Crochet this college football team's logo in black and white as shown or choose the school colors of  black and gold. Using 2 dc per graph square with an H hook will give you a throw about the size of a twin mattress top. If you'd like to request the pdf, please email me at kendrascrochet@gmail.com with Iowa Hawkeyes (for the top graph) or Iowa Hawkeyes 2 (for the bottom graph) in the subject line. Please put any comments or questions in the body of the email.  
If you are nervous about the lettering, I'd suggest either working the blanket from the short side (this seriously cuts down on color changes!) or leaving out the lettering if you want only the logo.  If you leave out the lettering, request the top graph so your logo will be in the center. I use a method called "intarsia" to keep the colors from showing through between sections.  See this blog post to read about how I do this (includes photos).

Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos are another NFL team whose logo I love!  What a gorgeous animal!  This graph is made to create an afghan about twin mattress top sized when using an H hook and 2 dc per graph square. If you'd like a 4 x 5 foot throw, add 15 rows to each side and 5 to the top and bottom.  use a J hook and 1 sc per graph square. There is no pesky text on this graph, but if you'd like me to add it, please ask!

If you have a completed photo made from this graph, please send it to me so I can possibly feature it here or on my Facebook page.  You can also post photos of your completed projects on my Facebook page yourself!  I love to see them! You are welcome to sell your completed items, but not the graph or to claim the graph as your own.  When reposting, please credit me with the design.

I haven't made this myself yet, but I do sell completed items if you're interested in pricing, please email me!

If you'd like the pdf of this graph, email me at kendrascrochet@gmail.com with "Denver Broncos" in the subject line.  Put any questions you have in the body of your email.

Dallas Cowboys graph.  Using 2 dc per graph square with an H hook give you a large throw, about twin mattress top sized.
