This knitted truck has a trailer on the back to store toys or perhaps some candy and treats.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the truck, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 6 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: The truck is knitted flat on straight knitting needles, and knitted in garter stitch. 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). The window struts are added after making up - I made single crochet chains yo sew onto the windows, but you could use chain stitch embroidery if you don’t know how to crochet.


  • 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 hubcaps
