Beep! Beep! Move over, there’s a cute convoy of knitted Toy Cars coming through! These cars use short row shaping so that each can be knitted in one piece to minimise seaming. The wheels and light bars knitted separately and sewn on. The cars are in 2 sizes (9cm and 10cm long), and the colour-work creates 5 designs: a red coupe, blue saloon, white police car, New York yellow taxi and a London black cab. You could even add a toy squeaker inside the car when stuffing for extra “beep beep” fun. Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the cars are knitted on single pointed needles (not in the round) in DK yarns (double knitting/light worsted).
