My son is a huge New Orleans Saints FAN and I would love to find a Crochet pattern with the Fleur-de-lis so I can make him an Afghan.
Do you have any ideas.
Hi Joyce, thanks for the comment.
I'm aware of one pattern book featuring crocheted NFL afghan patterns, but that particular book is out-of-print and not easy to find. Right before the Super Bowl, I saw one for sale on ebay. I just took a look and couldn't find any other copies being offered at the moment, but they do pop up for sale occasionally.
If you're willing to do a bit of work adapting an existing chart, here are a few links you can take a look at:
- Fleur de lis charted design -- Sandi Marshall re-charted this design from a 1917 pattern book.
- NFL knitting by Sarah E. White -- she shares free charts for fleur de lis and horseshoe motifs.
- Fleur de lis bread cloth pattern by Annie's Attic Yes, I realize this is a dainty filet crochet piece-- not exactly what you are trying to make here -- but the charted fleur de lis motif included with the pattern is nice, and could be adapted.
These could give you a starting point.
Obviously, none of these are endorsed by the NFL, nor are they copies of the NFL's trademarked graphics in any way shape or form.
If anyone else has appropriate ideas or patterns for Joyce, please be sure to comment! Thanks!.
