Car jams have never been so much fun! These super-squishy Toy Vehicles are easy to make and come with lovely simple details, and can also be used as little throw cushions. Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the vehicles are knitted in acrylic DK yarns on single pointed needles (not in the round). With this knitting pattern you can make a yellow cab, a cop car and an ambulance. You can use this basic vehicle template to create a fleet of vehicles in different colours too. The window struts are added using Swiss darning (duplicate stitch), the ambulance uses intarsia colour-work, and the taxi stranded colour-work. For confident beginners and above, other techniques used include casting on and off, knits, purls, increases and decreases, and seaming to finish.
