    afghan for a big Vikes fan

    I hope you Vikings fans can help me out! I want to make an afghan for my Dad who is also a Vikings fan. I need help in deciding a good design. I want to make the background purple of course and I was thinking the word Vikings in the old style lettering (see image) in yellow. I think the old style lettering will look better in crochet. I would like to incorporate the horns too but I can't figure out how. Any suggestions? Thanks everyone!

    An afghan is a blanket. In this case, I'm planning on making a smaller one that's is to be used by one person on a couch or chair.

    I like the block letters too, but my favorite is the old script:

    LOL!!!

    Viking Mike, the third one. I like the script too but it won't look good and that small of a blanket, with the small amount of stitches I'm going to use.

    It's like pixels so it will prolly be about 150 across and like 250 rows. I use link: http://www.donnascrochetshoppe.com/p..._football.html but the only Vikings pattern is much too big. If I made that one, it would cover a king size bed. So I need to come up with a less intricate pattern so that it will look good on a smaller blanket.

    Btw, I only used the word afghan since when ever I call them blankets my Grandma (from Minnesota and big Vikings fan too) corrects me and makes me call them afghans.
