I originally created this pattern as a custom design for a friend. She made it for her husband who is a trucker (also called a Long Hauler). If you're unfamiliar with that term, it means his job is to drive these great big trucks all across the country and deliver goods. We call it a semi truck, but I think it's also called an 18-wheeler, a big rig, or a tractor trailer (there are probably a few more titles that all mean the same thing).

When I shared her picture to my Facebook Group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/ashleebrotzelldesigns, there were a lot of people interested in the pattern!

My dad was a trucker for a few years, and my brother-in-law has done it for a few years as well. Based on the responses I received, it seems like everyone knows someone who has been a long-hauler or is still doing it even now!

****If you'd like a customized piece (like the crocheted sample by an Anonymous Squirrel in the pictures) please email me: ashleebrotzelldesigns [!at] gmail.com and we can go over some details. I will not be refunding your purchase of the non-customized pattern if you choose to add customization. ****

I've removed the mesh dots from the mosaic version and because of all the dropped double crochets next to each other I use a larger hook for the mosaic. The double border line has also been removed from the mosaic version.

**You will receive one file containing:**
- written line-by-line instructions using the interlocking crochet technique
- a one-page chart and a multi-page chart (205 x 207)

**And another file containing:**
- written line-by-line instructions for the overlay mosaic crochet technique
- a multi-page chart marked with X's (201 x 203)

What a great pattern! Especially since everyone on my husband's side has to do with trucks.
