CAMPER VAN TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
I adore camper vans, they always look so happy!
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the camper van, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles. The van itself is knitted in garter stitch and made in two pieces (top and bottom) to minimise seaming: the wheels and bumpers are knitted separately and sewn on.
You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, sew seams, and turn the work part way through a row.
For colour-work, you will need to know how to knit stripes (i.e change colour at the end of a row), and intarsia knitting in garter stitch to make the pattern on the bonnet.
The window struts are added using embroidery after making up (I used a chain stitch).
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 50g in each colour
- Toy filling
- Buttons for headlights
