I have been knitting for several years, and my nephew asked me to knit him an afgan with the Harley Davidson Logo on it. Does anyone have such a pattern?
Welcome to the forum from Michigan!! I'm sure someone will come up with a Harley Davidson logo. I'll do some searching and see what I can find.
Thank you so much, I really appreciate that.

Ask him for a decent sized Harley Davidson logo, take it to your local copy place, copy it onto graph paper . . .and don't share it, as it is almost certainly copyrighted.
Here's a graph you can build around...
This graph is great. If I am reading the graph correctly, there are 100 sts across and 80 rows in height. I am not good at all when it comes to altering a pattern. I want to make an afgan (full size) and have the logo centered on it. How do I do that? Do I cast on double the stitches (50 more sts on each side) and knit double the rows (40 top and bottom)?? Pretty dumb when it comes to that. I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks again for your help.

You would want the top to bottom be longer than the side to side so you would knit more rows before you start the pattern. I would lay it on a bed to determine when to start the pattern, do the 50 sts on either side and then do the same amount of rows on top of the logo as on the bottom so that the logo is centered. My nephew would love to have this for his bed as he rides a Harley. Just might have to try it myself. Thanks for the idea!!
Thank you so much for the input. I will definately try this. My nephew is also a Harley owner, as is my brother. Let me know if you decide to make it. I will now start looking for black, grey and orange yarn (Harley colors).
I love it, thank you so much.
Thanks everyone for all your feedback.
Wow guys, I've just joined & was looking to knit a HD cushion for my friend, these patterns are perfect!!! I think I shall incorporate both and knit her personalised reg onto the back :)
Love this one, Have it to crochet butwould love to knit, not sure if I need to do extra rows of pattern for knit, I usually double crochet.
Thank you I just started my search for something along this line to make. I hope to ride my professors Hog soon. She said I could finally get a ride on one! I'll be 50 in May. Then I can take that off my bucket list.
