Classic Car Crochet Applique – a free pattern
There are many crochet appliques. I think there exist generally more for girls: unicorns, hearts, bows and flowers in all variations. Boys crochet appliques are rare e.g. tractors, airplanes or UFOs. The new applique, I want to show you today is more suited for boys clothes and maybe makes the dad happy. After all, it’s not just some small car. No, it’s a Classic Car crochet applique and you can download the free pattern here.
As you probably know, I like appliques very much. They are versatile, fast and easily crocheted and a nice decoration. Crocheted appliques can be used as table decorations, attached to towels or other other sewn items. They are the little something, that makes a gift special.
The Classic Car Crochet Applique is ideally suited for clothing of little boys or as a part of a quiet book. A sewn book with crochet appliques for touching and cuddling.
This vintage car applique is special. Its frontal perspective seems very much alive. You can enhance this effect by adding pupils to the headlights. You could stitch a French Knot or use some little black buttons.

The Classic Car Crochet Applique is complex and consists of several parts. It is worth the extra effort and even suited for beginners with a little patience. I crocheted the vintage car in green, orange and red. I look forward to see your versions!
