INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.7. Diagrams A.2 to A.5 are the car, A.1 is the wheels, A.6 is lights and A.7 is bottom of car.
Section marked with grey has already been worked, it only shows how next round should be worked in stitches/rows.
----------------------------------------------------------

CAR:
Car worked in several parts. First work 4 wheels, then the car. Finally work light and work the piece together.

WHEELS:
Work 4 chain stitches on hook size 4 mm with the colour of the car and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Work A.1 in the round = 1 wheel. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 has been worked, there are 9 double crochets on last round. Fasten off, fill the wheel with cotton wool and put aside. Work 4 wheels in total. They are worked together with car in diagram A.5.

CAR:
Work A.2 back and forth (= car roof and flaps down over the windows) with the colour of the car. When A.2 has been worked, work A.3 in the round over stitches/rows in A.2 (= the windows). Section marked with grey = A.2, section has already been worked, it only shows how next round should be worked in stitches. Work first round in A.3 with the colour of the car, then work with off white until 1 round remains. On last round place flaps down over windows and work together with corners in A.3 with the colour of the car (see the squares in A.2). When A.3 has been worked, there are 32 double crochets on last round. Fasten off the off white strand. Work the rest of car in the colour of the car. Work A.4 back and forth over the first 8 stitches (= front of car). Increase 1 double crochet in each side on first round = 10 double crochets. When A.4 has been worked, work A.5 in the round over all stitches/rounds in A.4 and the remaining stitches in A.3 (= the sides, mid front and mid back on car).
On 4th round in A.5 work the wheels on car as follows: Fold last round on wheel double and work 1 double crochet through both layers of wheels and 4th row in A.5, work 2 double crochets in total through all 3 layers (= the wheel is now fastened with 2 double crochets to the car), work all 4 wheel to the car the same way.
When A.5 has been worked, there are 54 double crochets on last round. Fasten off.

LIGHTS:
Work A.6 with strong yellow. Cut the thread and tie ends together. Work 2 lights in total.
Sew light to the front of car. Fill the car with some cotton wool. Then work the bottom loosely in the round before working it together with the car.

BOTTOM:
Work 9 chain stitches on hook size 4 mm with the colour of the car and work A.7, work on both sides of chain stitch row. When A.7 has been worked, there are 54 double crochets on last round. Work the bottom to car with 1 double crochet through both layers in the round, over all stitch. Fasten off.

Hei! Hva menes med "1 fastmaske i masken og om luftmaskeringen"? På starten av hjulet er det trekanter. Disse er ikke beskrevet. Skal det være to fastmasker i samme maske med en luftmaske mellom?

DROPS Design 23.01.2019 kl. 10:59:

Hei Christine. Her hadde det blitt en feil, denne er nå rettet så symbolforklaringen stemmer. Den første omgangen hekler du 1 fastmaske om luftmaskeringen, på den andre omganegen hekler du 1 fastmaske i masken. Symbolet på 1 omgang i A.1 er blitt rettet til: 2 fastmasker i samme maske/rad med bilens farge. Takk for beskjed og god fornøyesle videre

Kan ikke finne diagram A.1?

DROPS Design 02.11.2018 kl. 14:46:

Hei Sinikka. Diagram A.1 ligger helt nederst, under A.7 og ved siden av A.6. God fornøyelse.

Hallo, ich wollte mich jetzt auch mal an dieser schönen Anleitung versuchen und habe folgendes Problem: Was bedeuten die geschlossenen Dreiecke nach dem Ring bei A.1?

K.J.van Lievenoogen-Smits 26.05.2018 - 16:29:

Wat een leuk patroontje, bedankt daarvoor. Met vriendelijke groet, Kirsten

Hallo, die Anleitung war am Anfang erschreckend, es ging dann aber. Nur das Anhäkeln der Räder hatte ich nicht verstanden, ich habe sie dann angenäht. Aber das Auto sieht süß aus. Dankeschön
