“Sculptural crochet creates a skillful rendition of a favorite toy.” (excerpt from Crochet World magazine)
This locomotive toy measures 12 1/2” long x 4 1/2” wide. It is made with size 10 crochet thread in cardinal, black, silver/silver, gold/gold and white/pearl. Plastic canvas is used to give the toy a “skeleton” for shaping the different sections of the locomotive, to give the wheels strength, to help shape the red cow catcher on the front and the rods on the sides. Fiberfill is also used for stuffing the locomotive and felt is used for the windows on the cab.
