Crochet Toy Car

I started to make this last January. It took long to finish because, well, I've never made something like this before. This was supposed to have a "Just married" text at the back, but I decided not to include that in case my friend who ordered this doesn't want it now. It's my fault anyway for not completing this early. :(

But anyway, I like the way it looks. My younger sister (who's too old to play with stuffed toys) even played with it and her teddy. There are parts that obviously need improvement. I just hope I'd make better ones next time.

Update: My friend's getting it for his son :) I'll just have to add an embroidered name.

UPDATE 03/23/2012: As requested by Athens, I have transcribed the pattern for this toy car. It's in PDF format and uploaded at Google Docs. This is my first time to make a written pattern so I really do hope the directions are understandable, and that the results turn out fine.

  7. I just found your pattern through Pinterest and am really excited to try this as my first foray into Amigurami!! I'm still pretty new to crocheting so does it matter what yarn I use? I have a lot of left over "worsted" from a simple afghan. Also, what hook size did you use? Or does it not matter as long as you make tight stitches?

    1. hello. I used 3-ply acrylic yarn for this, 2mm hook. I don't really know how other types of yarns turn out, but just make tight stitches.

    1. hello. I didn't take note of the gauge because it can be any size. As for the yarn, in my case, i think at least 3 rolls.
