Wedding Blanket, NEED FUN CHART HELP
 
Okay, so I'm working on my quillow still and am getting the creative bug :happydance: to make this a fun blanket by knitting squars with a chart. I have two ideas to bring before you guys, and want your advice and help in finding or creating my own chart for this.

ONE: I love pigs, LOVE EM! I don't even eat pork because I like them so much, so one idea was to make a chart of a pig to knit in each square. I wanted to a simple pig face, nothing too cartoony.

TWO: I'm getting married on the 6th of March. My fiance is a Rebublican, and I'm a Democrat. We joke about our differences all the time so I was thinking of making one square a donkey, then the other an elephant and alterating. And then on the pillow face of the quillow embroidering our names and wedding date. I think that would be a fun, personal, and cute way to make a joke that would mean something to only us. But how do I make a pattern? I've been reading on stitching them, and I'm getting so good at purling and knitting that I think I'm ready for the challenge, but next I need the chart.

I would LOVE any help you could give me, and I'm very very excited about the donkey elephant one. It just popped into my head and would be hilarious!

There's an elephant on this page

There's no donkey, but there IS a horse....maybe you could shorten its legs and make its ears a little bigger? :thinking:

You might be able to use this if you have a picture, or you can get knitter's graph paper, in proper gauge, here.

If you have a picture you'd like to trace, tape it to a window with the graph paper on top and trace it with the light shining through it.
