BUBBLE CAR TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
This knitted car is a fun toy for boys. The car is knitted in one piece to cut down on seaming, and the wheels and bumpers are knitted separately and sewn on.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the car, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. For colour-work you will need to knit stripes (change colour at the end of a row). The window struts are embroidered after knitting. This pattern incorporates short rows (wrap and turn).
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
- DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight); less than 25g in each colour
- Toy filling
- Buttons for headlights
