My name is beckybear and I'm trying to find patterns of semi trucks so I can make an afghan with semis on it for my grandson whose dad is a truck driver. I am also looking for patterns for sports designs (motifs) so I can make an afghan for my grand-daughter.
Hi beckybear and welcome to Knitting Help!What a good idea. Here's one blanket that may be close to what you want or could be modified.http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/beep-beep-blanketor you could use this idea and change it into a semihttp://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/little-flat-car-with-pickup-truckThere are several more patterns on Ravelry (free to join) if you search on "trucks".Your question reminded me of a pattern I've made for a little girl who likes truckshttp://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/view-all-patterns/isle-of-trucks-sweater.html
The sports motifs could be done with knits and purls like thesehttp://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/football---cloth-knitting-patternhttp://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/soccer-ball-facecloth---dishclothI'll bet you could design your own pattern with some knitter's graph paper, too.
Here's a cute kid's blanket with a bus, truck, and plane on it.
