CARS and TRUCKS CAL

Several years ago Jenness created a large road mat blanket for her children in a CAL by Happy Berry Crochet. There were several small car patterns available that worked with the road mat, but there weren’t any other types of vehicles that were small enough to fit appropriately for play. And with that…… the ideas for her own designs were born! She then shared a few photos of some of those creations in a Facebook group and it was suggested that she run a crochet-along with those patterns. It has taken a bit of time to get the patterns tested with improvements to the designs and the photography along the way. But here we are…. co-hosting her first ever CAL!!!

CARS AND TRUCKS:

All information for this CAL can be found HERE

Materials: For all vehicles you will need:

  • 3.5 mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle 
  • Scissors
  • Fibrefill or other suitable stuffing material (I used leftover yarn tails whenever appropriate)
  • Small scraps of yarn (40-50 cm)  to create headlights (white or yellow) and tail lights (red or orange). Alternatively, you can use small buttons (10 mm wide for the bigger vehicles, you may need something smaller for the race cars)
