Crocheting simple cars for beginners and advanced crocheters
If you are not as certain yet when it comes to crocheting, or if you are using a crochet hook for the first time, you can still get great results with our car crocheting instructions. However, as a crochet beginner, you should not try your hand at the difficult toy cars right away. It's best to try crocheting on a simple car patch for sewing on, which only consists of single (US: double) crochet stitches.
If it just works smoothly, crocheting is so much fun that you won't want to stop and step by step, you can approach the more difficult crochet instructions for cars. If you are already a crochet professional, our car crochet manuals will not give you any problems. So, you see, CrazyPatterns takes everyone into account. Both beginners and advanced crocheters can get a great car crochet manual from us.
Suitable materials for crocheted cars
Before you choose a crochet instruction for your car, you have to consider a few small things. If your crocheted toy car is intended for a racer under the age of three, you should embroider all the ornaments like lights or eyes. This way you can make sure that the little guy doesn't tear off any small parts and swallow them. A crochet yarn that can be washed in the machine without any problems would also be an advantage. Of course, for older children, the cute wiggly eyes can be used, as well.
If nothing else is indicated in your manual for crocheting cars, you will get by with the following materials:
Crochet yarn in the appropriate colours.
Other materials, such as small beads or eyes for sewing or gluing on.
Filling cotton or wool if it is going to be a toy car or a key ring.
Crochet hook in the size according to the chosen wool.
Wool or darning needle to sew the thread ends together.
Scissors to cut the threads.
Crochet a car - Crochet instructions in English
It's great that everything can be found on the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, this also has a small disadvantage. Since English is not spoken everywhere in the world, some texts are only available in a language foreign to us. This can also happen to you with crochet instructions, which you search or via a search engine. But if you click through CrazyPatterns, this will not be the case.
Our website offers you all crocheting instructions for cars in English. This way you don't have to use an interpreter or a dictionary to make a car for your little darling. With a CrazyPatterns instruction you can start right away.
How to crochet an Amigurumi car?
Now that you have landed on the overview page with the crochet instructions for cars, you could already see that with each short presentation of a crochet project there is an indication whether you can download the manual for free or whether you have to pay for it. As soon as we have received the indicated amount of money, nothing will stand in the way of your download. You can then download the tutorial as often as you like without having to pay for it again. However, it is more convenient if you save the crochet instructions for a car on your computer. Then you can also work with it offline.
After you have opened your download, in addition to the detailed step-by-step car crochet instructions, you will usually find a recommendation about which yarn is best suited for your project. You will get an explanation on which crochet hook you need, and sometimes even which colour was used for the pattern. You can follow these suggestions, but you do not have to. However, you may have to adjust the number of stitches if you use a different wool thickness.
Crochet baby toy car
Even if your little sweetheart can't speak yet, he can tell you his affinity for cars just by humming or clapping and laughing. But because even the wooden toy car is still too heavy and dangerous for the very youngest, it makes sense to crochet a baby toy car. The crocheted car is stuffed with filling wool and is so soft that there is no danger of injury.
When you crochet, you should make sure that you crochet so tightly that the filling cotton wool can't come out through small holes. If you find this difficult, you can use a thinner crochet hook than suggested for your yarn. This automatically makes the crochet stitches tighter. Furthermore, before you buy a set of instructions for crocheting a baby car, take a close look at the filling: Is the car filled with cotton wool or does it have a wooden frame? For the very small ones only the soft cars are suitable of course.
Crocheting a car for a baby hat
Even a baby hat can look stylish and modern. To embellish the cap of your little treasure, a self-crocheted car is the perfect decoration. For a simple car patch there is no need for many different types of crochet stitches and not a lot of increasing or decreasing, which makes this project perfectly suitable for the layman. Usually you will be expected to know chain crochet stitches, single (US: double) crochet and slip stitches.
You should also not have too much difficulty increasing and decreasing the number of stitches. Therefore, if you are holding a crochet hook for the first time, it is a good idea to browse a little in our free crochet lexicon beforehand. This way, you can familiarize yourself with the basic knowledge. In general, you should use a skin-friendly yarn for baby accessories. Don't decorate your self-crocheted car patch with buttons or beads but make it in bright colours instead.
Crochet Car Keychain
A car for a car! What is more suitable for a real car enthusiast than having a car hanging on your key ring? At CrazyPatterns you can find great keychain cars for every taste. But you can also spice up your sweetheart's kindergarten bag with a crocheted car keychain. Both the keychain for your hubby and the one for your kid’s kindergarten bag should be washable. Because the small accessories get dirty quickly through frequent use.
The advantage of such a small crochet work is that you can use many yarn leftovers. However, when mixing different types of wool, make sure that they are as close in thickness as possible. Otherwise the small car will get out of shape. To stuff the crocheted car for attaching, you can either use the back of the crochet hook, a pencil or - very professionally - a special stuffing tool. Oh yes, and filling wool in the form of fluffy flakes is also easier to stuff in the small crochet works than conventional filling material.
Crocheting for the car / Crochet a blanket for the car
Of course, you can not only crochet cars, but you can also crochet many great accessories for the car. For example, there are small belt pads for the seat belt, which often pinches uncomfortably, especially with small people. You could crochet a toilet roll hat, which is usually placed in the back on the parcel shelf. Even a pillow for the car can't hurt. And not only those who have children know that a car blanket should be available in every car. Because in a traffic jam in winter it can quickly get quite cold.
With all the things your crochet for your car, you should use yarn that is easily washable. Even things that are not used very often, such as a toilet roll cover or a blanket, will quickly gather dust. Also avoid hard decorations that can pinch when sitting for a long time or cause injuries in an accident.
Crocheting car headrests
Especially when children are in the car, the rear area can be made a little child-friendly and fun. If you crochet a funny cover for the car headrests, you can make the back seat more friendly. Either you use your left-over wool and make colourful striped headrest covers or you choose crocheted car headrests with a picture.
When choosing your yarn, make sure that it is machine washable. Because even in clean hair, dust gets stuck and is transferred to the headrests. In addition, the cover should not flap around the headrest, but at the same time, it should not be too tight. Because removing it should not be a problem. It goes without saying that you should not use hard objects, such as small beads, to decorate your crochet work, which can pinch when leaning against it.
Crochet techniques for crocheted cars
With toy cars or with small cars for the key ring you will usually crochet mainly with firm stitches, because the filling cotton wool should not stick out anywhere. If you crochet rather loosely, it is advisable to use a smaller needle size than indicated in these instructions for crocheting cars. When crocheting the car for the baby hat or the car blanket, the toilet roll hat or the car pillow, other crocheting techniques can also be assumed.
If you have mastered the following techniques, you are definitely right:
You have to know chain stitches for almost every crochet project.
Single (US: double) crochet stitches are required for the Amigurumi cars.
For the crocheted car patches or the crochet accessories for the car you may need double (US: treble) crochet, half double (US: treble) crochet, or treble (US: double treble) crochet stitches.
Without slip stitches you can't crochet the car either.
For some manuals you need to be able to start a magic circle.
You should know how to increase and decrease the number of stitches when crocheting.
And besides crocheting, you must of course be able to sew your thread at the end of the crochet work.
