Video subtitles:
  • 00:00: I really welcome to part 2 of the episode 3 of our crochet along and in this video I'm going to be showing you how to make the car and this goes with our road play match crochet long for the last couple of weeks I've been showing you how to make various different squares for different designs for example last week I showed you how to make the pond square with some trees and also some long grass square and some
  • 00:31: road pieces as well let's see here part 2 part 1 I show you how to make the curved road square and these all join together at the end to make a road play mats but in this video it's just a quick recap if you're just coming straight into this video and but in this video I'm going to be showing you how to make the car for the road play mat and for this car we are going to be using some DK a light wall stood weight yarn and all these colors are colors which you
  • 01:01: should already have in if you've been following along for the crochet log but you may want to make your cars in different colors that may not be on the list for yarn materials for the crochet long but for this little car I made him in yellow but my little my little daughter model girl she wants to UM she wants a car in red so I'm actually going to be introducing a red color and to this tutorial which isn't in the materials list I know but my doll so really wants a red car so I'm going to
  • 01:31: do than this car on this tutorial in red but of course you can use the yellow from the material is for the crochet long or you could use gray or the pink even the white or the orange any of these colors would work really well feel a little car but I'm going to be using so that's the site I'm going to be using some red yarn and all these yarns are DK light wall stood weight yarns that's a yarn weight of three and as well as your chosen color for your car you're going
  • 02:01: to need some grey which you should already have on your materials list some white and also going to need so I only know a bit of the pink but you can also use red if you want to for the taillights at the at the back of the car and these are all DK like wall stood white yards and your weight of three so you're going to be needing those and we're going to be using a 3.5 millimeter II crochet hook I'm also going to need pair of scissors and a yarn eater you're
  • 02:31: definitely going to need a yarn needle for this tutorial cuz that's going to be a little bit of sewing for decoration though not the actual car and you're also going to need a little bit of twister thing as well but you can use yarn scraps if you want to all those little bits of leftover leftover yarn scraps only have literally one here to show you and you can use all of these little bits as well for stuffing a car if you want to mine you'll be using a little bit of toys stuffing okay so
  • 03:01: let's begin okay so the first thing we're going to do is we are going to take the yarn we are using for the color of our car and you can use any color and we're going to we're going to chain six to begin go to chain six so slipknot and then chain six one two three four five and six chain six then what
  • 03:32: we're going to do is we're going to do two single crochet in our second stitch from hook now we don't count the loop on our hook there's our first stitch there's our second or second chamber what we're going to do when we work into that chain is we are just going to go under one bit of yarn and that's quite important because we want to work back into these chains a second time on the way back in the opposite direction and
  • 04:03: that just going under one bar yarn helps us to see these stitches again when we need to so making sure just to go under one bar yarn we're going to do two single crochet and this patterns in us terminology that's just the way I roll one and two two single crochet it came in that second stitch from hook then we're going to do one single crochet in the next three chains so I'm going to go into the next chain again making sure
  • 04:34: just to go under one bit of yarn do one single crochet in there then one single crochet in the next chain two and then one single crochet in the next chain three so let's do one single crochet in the next three that should leave you with one chain at the end and then that last chain we want to do two single crochet in the last chain let's do two
  • 05:05: single crochet one and end up on in the same chain okay so that's the end of our first round you should have a stitch count of seven along there one two three four five six seven but what we're going to do now is we're actually going to work back into these chains in the opposite direction and if you've just worked under one bit of yarn you should be able to see your chains there quite clearly which makes it a bit easier so
  • 05:36: in this first chain which is the last one you just worked into you where you did those two we're going to do two more single crochet so go back into that same last chain again do two more single crochet one and another one so effectively you end up with four full single crochet all in that last chain but it becomes our first chain when working back along here then in the next chain just want to just
  • 06:06: pull up you should be able to see the next chain along there see put a hook in there and do one single crochet I've done a video in more detail of working into your foundation chains you want to go check that out and then in the next chain and just put it apart slightly you should see your next chain hook in there and do one single crochet so we're just
  • 06:38: matching matching this side and then we want to do I'm just working the tail end along as well you don't have to do that it's just habit for me but there's our next chain the next chain we do one single crochet as well so you've done one single crochet in the next three just like you did on the other side that should leave you with one chain at the end and that last one you want to do two single crochet one and go back in and do another one so you got two in there so
  • 07:16: you end up with seven stitches along here as well so in total you did seven along here and seven stitches among here in total you've got fourteen stitches now what we're going to do now is we're going to work in the round so we're not going to go back in rows we're going to carry on you may just want to make sure your stitches are pulled down so you can see that first single crochet which is usually at the very top of your little sausage thing and in that next stitch that very first one right at the top
  • 07:50: make sure you go under two bits here now into the stitches normal moans do one single crochet okay it's going to go straight into the next stitch and do one single crochet okay then in the next stitch we're going to do two single crochet a little increase on the corner to says one and back into the same stitch another one two so you've got two in there and that lines up with your previous two single crochet
  • 08:20: then we're going to do one single crochet in the next four along the edge so one single crochet in the next stitch one next stitch two next stitch three next stitch for so one single crochet in the next four then we get to our next corner so in the next stitch we're going to do two single crochet two single crochet one and another one in the same
  • 08:53: stitch too so it's very similar to how I begin with some of my souls on my shoe patterns and then we're going to repeat those steps along the other side so the one at the top we're going to do one single crochet in that next stitch then we do two single crochet in the next stitch on the corner for increase another one in the same stitch two in there then we do one single crochet in
  • 09:26: the next four so next stitch one single crochet next stitch two next stitch three and next stitch for and then finishing up back where we started you can see there's your previous increase in that last stitch we're going to do two single crochet okay one and another one in the
  • 09:56: same stitch and that should line up with your previous increase okay and that's your last stitch you may want to use a stitch marker if you want to so you don't forget what you are but by the end of that round you should have a stitch count of 18 because you've gone up by 4 on each corner 1 2 3 4 then what we're going to do is we are going to do 3 4 5 6 that's four rounds of just 1 single crochet in each stitch around so basically you want to count to 18
  • 10:26: four times four rounds of just one single crochet in each stitch around you go straight into the next stitch we're not joining the rounds or chaining the beginning or anything is going to go straight into the next stitch and work one single crochet into each stitch around keeping a stitch count of 18 and you want to do that for four rounds okay four rounds so I'm going to do that and then I shall come back so count to 18 4 times 17 and a stitch 18
  • 10:57: okay so I've done four rounds of just a one single crochet in each stitch around and you can see they all line up with my last increase there so down four rounds one single crochet in each stitch around just do have a stitch count of 18 it should look a little something like that okay then what we're going to do we're going to move on to the round seven I'm going to do one single crochet in the next four okay so one single crochet the next
  • 11:29: four so next stitch one next stitch two next stitch three and next stitch four so one single crochet in the next four which should take you to the edge of the length side and then in the next four stitches we're going to do two single
  • 12:02: crochets so two single crochet in the next four so in the next stitch we do two single crochet one and another one in the same stitch okay then two single crochet in the next stitch one and another one in the same stitch two single crochet in the next stitch one and on the same stitch then two single crochet in the next stitch on
  • 12:35: the same stitch okay so you should have done two single crochet in the next four two four six eight okay in those next four then we should have ten stitches remaining back to the end so you really might want to use a stitch marker but you should have ten stitches left so we're going to do one single crochet in the last ten okay it's the next stitch one next stitch two next stitch three
  • 13:07: next stitch for next stitch five six seven eight 9 and 10 last stitch 10 okay so one
  • 13:38: single crochet in the last 10 I can see on back is where I started going see it lines up with my last increase down there okay okay so moving on to round eight we're going to do one single crochet in the next six this time okay so maybe on to the next round going straight into the next stitch do one single crochet in the next six so next
  • 14:08: stitch one next stitch to next stitch three next stitch for next stitch five next stitch six okay so one single crochet in the next six and don't why there is a written version to go along with this if you want to check that and then we're going to do the two single
  • 14:38: crochet in the next four again the same as what we did on the last round so two single crochet in the next stitch one and another one in the same stitch two two in there two single crochet in the next stitch one and two two in there two in the next stitch one and two then two single crochet in
  • 15:09: the next stitch one and two okay so you down to single crochet in the next four and you can see it's increasing here you can see it's starting to go upwards but because we're not increasing on the bottom that remains flat so it gets our windscreen then you should have 12 stitches remaining so we're going to do one single crochet back to the beginning
  • 15:39: okay so one single crochet in the last 12 hmm I six seven
  • 16:10: eight fine ten you never and the last one 12 you can see that lines up for your last increase into the round so one single crochet in the last 12 it should look a little something like that and your stitch count should have gone up to now sorry and said this dictionary look should be
  • 16:41: up to 26 now on round seven it went up to twenty-two from eighteen and now it should be at twenty-six stitches okay then we're going to do five rounds around nine ten eleven twelve and thirteen of just one single crochet in each stitch around so we're going to go straight into the next stitch and we're going to count up to twenty six five times so you want five rounds of just one single crochet in each stitch around
  • 17:12: not joining the rounds or chaining one up in just literally working in the round one single crochet in each stitch around keeping a stitch count of twenty six do that five rounds okay five rounds so I'm going to do that to the last stitch twenty six okay so I've done five rounds of just one single crochet in each stitch around
  • 17:43: and keep count of how many rounds I did I literally just threw down a little bit of toys stuffing each time I did around so if you want to how I keep count I know I'm weird okay so moving on to round 14 I'm going to do one single crochet in the next seven okay so one single crochet in the next seven just just to have a stitch count of 26 so next stitch one next stitch to next stitch three make
  • 18:18: stitch for next stitch five next stitch six and next stitch seven ok you should have done one single crochet in the first seven stitches and this time what we're going to do rather than do the increases we're going to the single crochet 2 together we're going to do
  • 18:48: that four times so single crochet two stitches together we're going to reduce to down to one and to do that we're going to go into the next stitch pull the yarn through but then stop and go into the next stitch and pull the yarn through you got three loops yarn over pull through all three and you can see that justos goes down to one stitch then from those two we need to do that four times that's first time so we go into the next stitch pull through stop next stitch
  • 19:18: pull through three loops yarn over pull through all three then one more next stitch pull through stop next stitch pull through three loops yarn over pull through all three so third one and the last one next stitch pull through stop next stitch pull through yarn over pull through all three okay so we've single crocheted two
  • 19:48: together we've done that four times four times and then you should have 11 stitches remaining and I'm going to do one single crochet in the last 11 okay so next stitch one two three Oh ten and last one
  • 20:39: eleven so one single crochet in the last eleven and your stitch count should have gone down now 222 gone back down to 22 it should look a little like that like a kind of like a dragon's nose but like most me of my my little dragon tutorial but I did am pattern rather and a rabiner tutorial oh now it's put a picture over the top of this and you can have a look at my little dragon that's a written pattern
  • 21:09: that you can go download for free off my website if you want it anyway moving on one set the game round 15 I'm doing one single crochet in the first five stitches this time it's the first five so next stitch one next stitch two next stitch three next stitch for next stitch five okay so one single crochet in the
  • 21:41: first five stitches and then we're going to single crochet 2 together four times again so we do the same as what we did on the last row okay four times so the next stitch pull through stop next stitch pull through yarn over pull through all three okay it's all first one next stitch pull through stop next stitch pull through yarn over pull through three it's all second one next
  • 22:11: stitch pull through next stitch pull through yarn over pull through all three so third one then one more next stitch pull through next stitch pull through yarn over pull through all three so again with single crocheted two together four times again you can see decreasing and that should leave you with nine stitches okay so one single crochet in the last nine next stitch one two three
  • 22:47: heat and the last one nine so one single crochet in the last nine stitches should look like that and your stitch count
  • 23:20: should have gone down to eighteen again okay back down to eighteen it should look like a bit of a crazy bubble car at the moment and so what we're going to do now is we're going to do two rounds of just one single crochet in each stitch around so you want to keep a stitch count of 18 so we go straight into the next stitch I'm going to count up to 18 twice so you just want to rounds of just one single crochet in each stitch around for two
  • 23:50: rounds okay going up to the end 17 and my last one 18 okay so you should have done one single crochet in each stitch around keeping a stitch count of 18 and you want to do that for two rounds okay two rounds okay it's all going to do now is we are going to stuff a little car today we're going to stuff our car what you want to do when you stuff your car
  • 24:21: whether using yarn scraps or toys stuffing is just shape your little car a little bit as you do it okay so just get a nice shape for your car so I'm going to stuff my car because it's quite a lot to do on camera and then I shall come back and she what to do you want it fairly firm very firm like this and you can use the stuffing help shape your car okay so I should do that and
  • 24:51: then I shall come back okay so when you finished stuffing your car I'm going to move on to round 18 I'm going to do one single crochet in the next stitch just the one one single crochet in the next stitch one single crochet then we're going to single crochet two together so it's the next stitch pull through the next stitch pull through yarn over pull through all three
  • 25:22: then we're going to do one single crochet in the next stitch okay just one single crochet then we're going to single crochet two together so the next stitch pull through next stitch pull through yarn over pull through all three then we do one single crochet in the next four across this edge so next stitch one next stitch two next stitch three next stitch for okay
  • 25:57: so one single crochet in the next four then we're going to single crochet 2 together next stitch pull through stop next stitch pull through yarn over pull through all three then one single crochet in the next stitch one single crochet then we're going to single crochet 2 together next stitch pull through next stitch pull through yarn
  • 26:28: over pull through 3 then that leaves us with three stitches so we do one single crochet in the last three so next stitch one next stitch two and the last stitch 3 okay so should look like that we've reduced our stitch count back down to 14 what we're going to do now is if we carried on just decreasing we'd end up
  • 26:58: with this sort of circular back sort we're actually going to do is were actually going to flatten it gives it a really nice little 60s style to the back of the car but we're going to flatten this where it gets a little bit fiddly going to flatten you want to flatten it in the right shape there's your front of your car go over the top and then flatten okay so we want it to match the front angle okay so what we're going to do is
  • 27:33: we're going to do one single crochet in the next two so as you can see we need to get to the edge so I'm going to do one single crochet in the next two one and the next stitch two and then we're at the edge of where we've flattened the back of our car okay and we should have seven stitches either side because we've
  • 28:03: got stitch count of fourteen you should have seven stitches either side so what you want to do is for us to where you're going to crochet this closed now so what we want to do is when you're at the end is see that next stitch there you go into that next stitch and we're going to come out the next stitch okay show you that again so you've done one single crochet in the next two I'm going to go in to that next stitch then out the next stitch and then
  • 28:35: we're going to do a little slip stitch straight the loop on your hook and then you kind of need to turn your work still be flattened and work back along this row now okay so we're going to go into the next stitch which is there this time we need to just find our next stitch on the back which is here and put a hook in there and into a slip stitch bring that
  • 29:06: through the back stitch then through the front stitch and do a slip stitch we're going to continue that all the way across so we've got seven the first one was that one right on the end where you went in and out the next one then that one now is our second one next one third go to the stitch at the back as well three next stitch then up the back pull it through both stitches into a slip stitch
  • 29:39: for stitch five six with that buck on as well and the last one I kind of just together so you're going to go in and then sort of straight back out again right here you are so pretty matter so it close so close single crochet close
  • 30:14: and there we go there is the back of our car crocheted close and what we need to do now is just hide out ten and so moving that up and cops'll yarn bring that through then we're going to get our yarn needle we're going to hide this Thailand on the inside slip on and then just to make sure that's they've
  • 30:45: I'm going to go just over there just to get that stitch right over and then so we going sit properly now sort of very 60s 50s style bubble car but we're going to go and sew in and then just out some wherefores tips and matter where don't want to pull too tight down these things you want to keep the shape the back of your car then you want to go back in where you came out here come out the
  • 31:18: other side as matter where it's come out for a stitch that disappears on the inside then taking your needle off which is going to push our project down hold your tail end trim as close as you can and then when you let go and your project bounces back turn and disappears on the inside and gets caught up on all that stuffing so there we go there is the basic car shape all we need to do now
  • 31:48: to give it a little bit of design and you may just want to sort out your stuff Inc it's me stuffing into that end now there we go and all I've done for the design is I've literally sewn this on so I'm going to get some gray yarn now and you want to get the nice length of gray yarn let's do a bit of so to get yourself a nice length okay I found that sewing a design on was much quicker and easier than cruising a little white bits
  • 32:19: and then all you want to do is just sew a design for the windscreen and outline in the gray so it's sort of start around here and then just go over to the next stitch I'll just show you the first one so leave a little bit of tail sewing at the end then you want to go back a stitch over there and over to the next stitch that does is creates a little line there
  • 32:51: then we go back and then forward a stitch so back to there then forward a stage that creates the next little line like that then we go back to the next one and it's a good idea when you're doing this to just step back and have a look and make sure you've got all the angles the design working for your
  • 33:21: little windscreen so let me get back one and I'm just going to go over one more and then just check that the lines up going to go back one just about five little stitches over then I need to come up and then over then down I'm going to come up stitch and I'm
  • 33:51: going to change my angle and I'm going to go down to here up to diagonally to there sometimes you may need to have to go sort of able more than one stitch few little stitches won't line up but you usually do little things you do little one stitch at a time okay so again I'm starting to create a little
  • 34:24: bit of an angle and then I'm going to be at the top I think that'll do and then I'm going to start going across the top n plus one like I have to get this right first I want gum you guys can take a little bit
  • 34:55: more time designing out of the wind screens and windows then I think probably over one more oops and then going to go back down diagonally to about there I got there and then join back where I started like say and then
  • 35:27: I'm just going to get back up to that last one and then what I would then do is go on to my next window which could say start over here just to finish off that blast line there so there we go there's another windscreen design and you would then move on to your next on but to hide your tail ends you just do exactly the same as what you did for the
  • 35:57: red so just thread it on and get back in where you started then just come out any way you like the bottom for a stitch disappears in there and then I'm going to come out say yeah doesn't matter where that disappeared it gets all caught up on the stuffing and then you just make sure not to come out one we should put it down hold that trim as close as you can and
  • 36:28: then that disappears on the inside so just do that and for the other windows as many windows as you want to do I chose to do one on to do for one at the back and front into one on each side and so I'm going to do that for the rest of this con and I'll come back and show you what to do next okay as there we go there's my outlines of my little windows unfortunately that one went better than that one but anyway tiny little back windscreen yes I could
  • 37:00: okay so what we're going to do now is we'll technically just literally going to color in oil windscreens Gothel that'd be easier than just getting you know shaping bits of white crochet so to take a good length of your white yarn and we are going to color them in and to do that the quickest way to color them in is rather than go into crossways you want to give up and down as you can see here I've just gone up and down color in
  • 37:30: the little windscreen so I'm going to start just at the top and then come down to the bottom you want to make sure to keep your yarn fairly close together so you don't get any little gaps and you may not always be able to go through stitches you may have to go through half a stitch like for the middle of a stitch like there okay let's show you this one that's just full just to the side of the
  • 38:07: grade get your outline clear and then we're just going to go to the side of that and then come down just slightly along then do this all the way across tail end all the way all the way across and do it for all my windows and there is but let's get me
  • 38:40: another one it's quicker okay so I'm going to do that you can always need to that and go back over if you get any gaps so I'm going to do that and then I shall come back okay so I finished that for all the windows just going up and down up and down all the way it's a bit tougher at the back don't leave of those decreases but there we go and I always forget to do this because I fasten off
  • 39:11: and hit my white tail end but you don't actually have to do that straightaway because we're going to do going to make some light little headlights using the white so before you fasten off your white which I have a tiny and just still just thread it can't speak today just thread it to the front on this corner but I have to rejoin with a fresh bit of whites I forgot to do that and we're going to create some little headlights and to do that I'm just literally just over this corner make sure you get the
  • 39:42: right end of the car just go back so forwards three times so one just sewing over that corner two then third one we just get a hideout tailing so bring it over here somewhere there we go so we've got three little loops of white yard just to create a little headlight and then do
  • 40:12: the next one the other side then just come to the other side disappears on there catches could have just gone straight to the side I've forgot puppy a little White's wrong with me today just forget in everything let's go straight to the other side and and then do three little loops this side as well so one - and bouquet that then goes somewhere
  • 40:48: else on the body cuz I'm not a hideout silence we get three little loops that side as well and then get back in where you came out move the other side somewhere disappear in there and then trim trim down that left is purely inside so there we go and I was going to hide this tail end and I can do exactly
  • 41:19: the same but with a pink better yarn for some tail lights but you can use red yarn if you want I'm just saying to use pink because pink is in our list of materials and of course I've used a red car anyways so I want the lights to stand out so I'm gonna do some little pink back lights exactly the same as what we did at the front here okay so I'll do that and then I'll come back okay so I just repeated that for some little pink tail lights at the back just three little loops of sewn-on yarn and hidden all my tails on the inside the
  • 41:49: same way we've done all the others so that's missing now is some wheels so for our wheels we're going to get our gray DK light busted right down and using the same hook size we are just simply going to chain four still a little slip nuts and then we're going to chain four one two three four okay chain four then find your first chain
  • 42:21: put your hook into that first chain bring it through that first chain and then straight through the loop on your hook to do a slip stitch and then we got our little loop full chain loop so we're huddled four chains are joined at the beginning and the end and in the middle is a little hole don't confuse it with your chain one hole find that center hole put your hook into that center of your loop bring the yarn through and we're going to do a single crochet
  • 42:51: single crochet I'm going to do six of these just wrapping it around our full chain loop so go back into the the middle you're 14 you bring me on through then wrap it around the chains do another single crochet who needs six of these that's two three Oh
  • 43:22: I the last one six and then we just find our first single crochet first time we did no way you can see this in gray first single crochet and do a slip stitch straight through the single crochet and straight for the loop on your hook just pull your tail end a little bit to bring in that hole we've gone for the center properly then it should close otherwise if it doesn't
  • 43:52: close point means you've gone for the chain one instead so there we go there's our tiny little wheel and we're going to leave a little bit of yarn for sewing we need to make four of these obviously unless you want to put one on the back as well in which case you want five for these and then I'm just going to trim down this sensor one the beginning tail end it's going to trim down nice and close height and taking their last tail end just going to sew back into that
  • 44:25: last single crochet just to neaten off the edge and you can use buttons instead if you prefer if you have some little gray buttons but trying to keep this within the material list we are going to place that on our car and working out where you want your little wheels to go just go into so in then straight out the other side which is the easiest way got
  • 44:56: our little wheel bed we're actually only going to sew the top three stitches we're going to leave the bottom three unsane because they're going to stick out so you only want to sew the top three so we're going to do is holding that in place I'm going to go back in where we came out this side and come out one of those stitches
  • 45:26: the top disappear on the inside and then I'm just going to go over slightly to another stitch that side and come out on the other side of the car and just check you're happy with the placement move you slightly then get back in where you came out back to that Center top center one
