    my friend is looking for charts..

    "I need to make a few of the little kids "Bulky wt." sweaters, with designs on the back like the Mary Maxim. I can find charts for worsted wt. yarns,
    but not bulky wt, From what I can figure all designs need to be less than 25 sts wide to fit and look right on the back. If you know of any sites with free charts, please post so I can check them out. Thank You!"

    any help out there?! Thanks,Kim

    Oh I just re-read your post and you're looking for motifs for bulky yarn. I'm not sure if there'll be any here, but I hope so. Good luck

    I found a few more. But again I'm not sure they're for chunky yarn.

    if you don't find what you're looking for, google graph charts for knitting, print out the paper according to your knitting gauge, draw whatever you want on it, give it some color, and knit from that. use that robot chart pattern for a guide when you draw. i used to do that when i made mary maxim sweaters for everybody. [mary maxim had graph paper back then]

    You can get lots of patterns and information at ravelry.com. To me that is the best knitting forum just like this is the best quilting forum.

    You will have to join to see everything on there.
