Little Blue Car Crochet Pattern
Update 22/04/2013: The error in the Little Blue Car Pattern (row 12 of the side panel) has now been corrected. I have absolutely no idea how I managed to mess that row up so royally and apologize to everyone who tried (and failed) to make this pattern. Please, if you have downloaded this pattern previously, do so again now so that you have the correct instructions. If you pick up any other errors, please let me know.
We had Pieter’s birthday party this weekend. What a lot of hassle for 2 hours of yelling kids! But he loved it and I was very chuffed with how it all came together. Watch this space for my Superhero Pop Art Printables etc.
My mother-in-law was such a great help!!! And not just with the party. She has been doing a load of washing a day AND the dishes in the evenings. To mention but two of the perks of having them visit. I think she will want a week’s rest when she goes back to South Africa.
They have headed off to Scotland for two days, so the husband and I are getting some jobs done. Pretty soon we will both be back at work en then what are we going to do??? And on the way back from nursery Pieter told me he has a girlfriend. Apparently he “sat next to her and held her hand ALL through circle time”. He’s only 4, bless him.
Right. Story time over.
Let’s talk all things vehicley and crochetey (not to be confused with crotchety, which is a different animal all together). A few of you might have seen the post I did about this little blue car way back when. Maybe you wanted to try making the little car but just not badly enough to buy the pattern. (And it’s a good thing you didn’t! It was my very first ever crochet pattern and I think it shows a bit in the instructions. Anyway…)
Tonight I am finally getting around to posting the pattern FOR FREE! It is the first in my vehicle series (there are three vehicles to date) and fairly uncomplicated to make. You just crochet a bunch of panels and then sew them together
