Vroooom vroooom ! Here is a soft and woolly version of the most beloved car ever !

This PDF pattern describes in US terminology how to crochet a lovely classic beetle car as shown on picture. (pattern is also available in Dutch and French, see below.)

Finished size will be approx. 9” (23 cm) long, 4.3” (11 cm) tall, 4.7” (12 cm) wide, crocheted using acrylic yarn (8 ply / DK), with hook size E (3.5 mm).

If you wish to make a taller or smaller version of this beetle, you can just use thicker or thinner yarn / crochet hook. This pattern is also suitable for wool or cotton yarn.

The pattern is mostly worked in continuous rounds. Some parts are worked in rows.

Materials used :

  • Crochet hook size E (3.5 mm)
  • Yarn in pink (approx. 60 gr), grey, black (both approx. 25 gr.), small amounts of white, red, orange.
  • Fiberfill stuffing, preferably a sturdy kind
  • 2 mother of pearl buttons, diameter approx. 0.5” (1.2 cm)
  • 2 pieces of chenille wire or pipe cleaner, both approx. 4.7” (12 cm)
  • Stitch marker, tapestry needle, pins, optional: matching colors sewing thread

Stitches used :
chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, increasing and decreasing, bobble stitch (instruction included), surface slip stitches, working through back of loops

Skill level : intermediate

Gauge is not important for this pattern, just crochet tight enough so your stuffing will not show through the stitches.
