The emblems/logos of major league baseball teams are trademarked and copyrighted. Patterns featuring their likenesses cannot be distributed (for sale or for free) without the express written permission of the intellectual property owner. This usually involves licensing arrangements, which are very expensive. There are very, very few officially licensed patterns of anything around.

Some sites may choose to make patterns available without obtaining the proper licensing arrangements, but our guidelines do not allow discussion of, links to, or any hints at how to find such sites or patterns. This is to protect Crochetville from legal troubles related to contributory trademark/copyright infringement. Some sites that do this have been added to our site filters, so links to that site will appear with a bunch of asterisks, and the link will not work.

I'm not aware of any officially licensed patterns for these teams. If anybody thinks you know of such a pattern, please PM the link to me so I can check it out and make sure the link is compliant with our guidelines.

You may end up needing to do some sort of generic baseball-themed afghan and just use the team colors.

There is an officially licensed booklet that I found on ebay last year. Every once in awhile you will see it up for bid again but it usually goes for a high price. It has the NFL teams on afghans and pillows. It is an older booklet. I "think" it is a Leisure Arts booklet but I'm not 100 % sure on that part.

I bidded for that today twice and was outbid by someone else. It was going for only 6.75 at the time, I wonder what the bid is now. Is it out of print I take it? She's looking for baseball theme one's though, not NFL.
