From Crochet At About.com: Helicopter - Aircraft Sampler Afghan Square Number Three
Designed by Sandi Marshall

Square 3 in This Series:


Each square on the chart = 1 single crochet stitch.
Starting Chain For Chart: 36 chains for single crochet or 35 chains for afghan stitch.

Materials Used In The Examples, Shown in Photos Above:
Worsted weight yarn -
Square on Left: 2 oz. light blue for background, 1/2 oz. navy blue for border and for helicopter
Square on Right: 1 1/2 oz. light blue for background, 1/4 oz. navy blue for one helicopter, 1/4 oz. hunter green for other helicopter
US Size G crochet hook

Finished Size For One Square: 10" x 8 1/2"
Gauge: 7 single crochet = 2 inches, 8 rows = 2 inches

In the example, I crocheted the colors in, following the chart. If you preferred, you could use this same chart to do the airplane in cross-stitch on an afghan stitch or single crochet background.

If you wish to make a plain crocheted background to cross-stitch the design on, starting chain is 36 chains for single crochet or 35 chains for afghan stitch. Work this background for 35 rows. One option is to crochet the background piece in the background color only and then cross-stitch the helicopter portion.

When all rows on chart are crocheted, you may wish to add a border in single crochet around the outside edge of the piece. Be sure to work multiple stitches, such as 3 sc or (sc, ch 2, sc) in each corner stitch to keep the corner areas from curling.
