I friend of mine asked me if I would like to do a car for a childs baptism. And here is the result!
And because I was so pleased with the result I wanna share my own pattern with you! You can make how many you want and give away as gift or sell, but please refer to this page and give me credit for the pattern. Please dont change the pattern and call it your own!
Here is how you do it:
You’ll need about 100 grams of a yarn with these preference -> 50 g/180 m. And some white and black yarn of the same type aswell for the windows and tires. You will also need 2 yellow buttons and 2 red buttons. And of course some wadding! I use US-terms!

Fill wheel firmly with wadding.
Crochet in everyother st and then sew the wheel together. Put the needle through to the other side round the white ring to make it the shape as you want. Then leave a long thread and attach the wheels on the side of the car.
When the wheels are sewn on the long side which is mounted together with the middle part, you start to sew the other cars longside. First, sew the bottom corner and work your way up, thus leaving the base open so you can sew the wheels on the 2nd longside of the car without any problems. When you done all you can start sewing all round. When it is about 5-7 cm left, fill the car with cotton wool. Sew it up.
Now your new car is ready for the road! TUT TUT!
