Patterns for afghans for grandchildren
 
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.

or you could use this idea and change it into a semi

There 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 trucks

The sports motifs could be done with knits and purls like these

I'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.
