Introduction: Lightning McQueen Crochet Car

Would you like to gift a toy for you baby.. So here it is a simple pattern to build your own car for your kid. I am sure they will just love it.

This pattern is of Red heart. They have a free downloadable version in PDF here.

I have done the car with two strands of yarn to make it of bigger size. The original size of the pattern is about 3 inch in length.

I love red cars and wanted to depict Lightning McQueen. You could use the colours that you love to create your version of the car.
