I am looking for a crocheted Oklahoma University afghan pattern?
By Evelyh West from Sulphur, OK
Well, double crochet a purple background and outline a Powercat logo and the letters "Kansas State University Wildcats" with white yarn in the center of the afghan! I'm joking! I'm joking! Just a Big XII friendly rivalry remark that I couldn't stop myself from typing! :-) I'm so bad that way!
All kidding aside, check with craft stores, fabric stores or yarn shops in Norman, Oklahoma (maybe even Oklahoma City). A lot of the stores and shops in the hometowns of Big XII schools cater to the school's fans and try to stock University logo related merchandise. If an employee simply says "No, we don't have that," ask to talk to a manager who could possibly be alerted to a customer request and look for such a pattern through their individual suppliers.
Congrats to the Sooners for the Fiesta Bowl Game win and good luck finding the afghan pattern you are seeking.
Hi. I was also trying to find a pattern for an OU afghan to no avail so I went to the OU site and copied a picture of the OU logo and saved it to my pictures. Then I went to a free site for making a graph. Using this I figured using an H crochet hook each 4 stitches equaled 1 inch, using triple crochet each stitch was 1 inch.

I am looking for a crochet pattern for an afghan or throw with OU on it, for the Oklahoma Sooners. Anyone know where I might find a pattern, or anyone have one? I've searched the internet and in stores, gonna go check out the library next. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have figured out how I'm gonna make this afghan, and will post a picture when it's completed.
Here is a fun suggestion if you like using your computer. Go to google and type in cross stitch pattern maker. You should be able to find quite a few trial versions. Now find a picture of the Sooners Logo. Put it in your program now when it comes up as a cross stitch pattern copy it and you now have a pattern that can be done in granny squares. Just Make a square for each square on the graph. If you have half squares Meaning one color on one side and one color on the other half, The internet also has instructions for making two color squares. Have fun and would love to see a picture of your finished project.

It's probably to late, but I have directions from an old melba swap column, you make up a bunch of different squares in the red and white colors. and sew them together(making and O and U ). I can scan the pattern and send to you if you want. Deb From Norman (11/08/2007)
