Crochet Digger 3 Crochet Digger Loader Pattern

What the heck!  I might as well post the pattern for the Crochet Digger Loader here as I am never going to get around to doing anything about my Etsy account.  Have at it, aspiring farm implement crocheters!

I have used US Crochet Terminology.

Update: The little light has been left out of the pattern, sorry!

Little Orange Light Pattern

  1. With orange yarn and working into a magic ring:  ch 1, 6 x sc.  Continue working around, making the first st of the next round in the first st of this round.  (6)
  2. Sc inc x 6.  (12)
  3. Sc into the back loop only of every st around.  (12)
  4. Sc x 12, working through both loops again from here on out.  (12)
  5. Sc x 12.  Ch 1 and bind off. Leave a long tail and sew to the top of the digger.  (12)

Linen Stitch Tutorial

The crochet digger is made using the linen stitch, which is basically a mesh of *sc, ch-1, skip 1*.  If you have never used the linen stitch, or would like a bit more help on how to make it, please see this photo tutorial.

    On the digger pattern it says to attach the grill to the front but there is no grill pattern. Is it just the same as for the tractor? Thank you for your help.

    • Dedri Uys says:

      That is a typo, sorry Miriam. There is no grill (or lights) on the front of the digger. Just the front bucket. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    I started making this and I m stuck on the side raw 13. I don’t follow so if you can help me and clarify.
    Thank you

    • Jyoti says:

      Sorry raw 11 not 13

      • Dedri Uys says:

        Jyoti, you need to skip the first stitch and then sl st into each of the next 13 st’s (sc’s AND chains), not the first 13 clusters.

        This should bring you to the middle of the side section, where you will continue to make the 7 sc clusters that will form the window.

  5. Mel says:

    Can I just ask, is this pattern written from UK or US terms?

    • Dedri Uys says:

      I use US terminology throughout. It just makes more sense to me. Thanx for flagging up that it isn’t mentioned. I will fix that. Take care,
      Dedri

    Thank you so much for this it’s fab! It’s nice to know that there are other people out there who also realise the need for crocheted diggers! I hope it’s OK that I’ve linked to this page from my blog.

    • admin says:

      Thank you for the kind comment, Sarah. And thank you for the link as well. Of course there’s a need for crochet diggers, hehe. I’m curious to know if you found the pattern overly complicated or if it was ok. Take care and happy christmas crafting!

      • Sarah says:

        Oh my goodness, how rude of me to have left it this long before replying! I thought everything was great about the pattern. It all made perfect sense to me.
        (I hope all goes well with the rest of your pregnancy and you can get some relief)
