My friend and I are making an afghan for an auction next May. I am looking for patterns (that can be used on a dishcloth sized block) that have to do with Sherlock Holmes and/or any of his cases. Any and all suggestions would be welcome, as well as any patterns. Thanks you.

I don't know if you are interested in paying for it, but this Knit is Sherlock themed

Perhaps this may work for a square:

Look for patterns of a pipe, cape, a Victorian carriage, waterfall, a Turkish slipper, London Bridge, a snake, a hound, 5 orange piping (pits), a blue carbuncle,etc.

If you Google Sherlock Holmes stories, you'll get some more ideas.

Found this on Ravelry. I would imagine using things like his address, maybe make a block with his hat or pipe. Looking up Sherlock Holmes on Ravelry, Craftsy or Pinterest, might give you some ideas.

Ravelry has a group that is 221b where everyone is making afghans made up of Sherlock squares: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/221b Many items are related to the BBC TV show, but some are general Sherlock.

They started out planning to have one or two squares per month (one easier and one more challenging) and there are many patterns there throughout the thread. Last time I was looking there were at least 25-30 squares, and I've not looked for over a year. I am sure someone in that group could direct to a pattern directory if there is one.

if you go to stitch board its a free site that will make charts to knit any size from pictures. you could collect pictures related to your theme and make them in charts for dishcloths. Just an idea.
