Vrooom! Crochet Motorcycle Pattern

*Note: I don’t know the names of these motorcycle parts, so I’ve numbered them in the picture below. If you know the correct names, please let me know!

Materials:

  • Yarn colors: red, gray, white, and black. (I used up some miscellaneous yarns in my stash, which were mostly Red Heart yarns.)
  • Size D/3-3.25mm hook
  • POLY-FIL Fiber (100% Polyester Fiberfil) “stuffing”
  • Tapestry Needle

Pattern – Front Wheel (Part #10):

*Note: The wheels are worked starting in the white center of one side (side A), up to the black of tire, and then the other white side (side B) is worked separately and sewn on. I found this helped make the spacing when you’re working the second half of the wheel more even and made it easy to stuff the wheel.

Rnd a1: In white, make a magic circle. Work 8 sc in the center of the circle. Join and ch 1.

Rnd a2: Work 2 sc in each st around. Join and ch 1.

Rnd a3: *2 sc in first st, 1 sc in next st* – repeat around. Join and ch 1.

Rnd a4: *2 sc in first st, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts* – repeat around. Change to black, join and ch 1.

Joining the Pieces:

Begin by joining parts #10 and #9, using a tapestry needle and the tail ends of the yarn to stitch them together. Join part #11 to part #9. Then join part #8 to part #9 so that it is adjacent to – but not actually attached – to part #10.

Carefully sew part #6 on top of part #10, then see past #7 on top of part #11. (These are the bike fenders.)

Insert part #5 into the hole of part #4, this creating a complete headlamp. See onto part #3 (bike body). Sew this completed body assembly onto the wheel/axel assembly, connecting at the edges of the fenders and at the top of part #8.

Sew parts #1 and #2 onto the bike body. Then sew both of the #12 parts from the center of the front wheel to the top of the bike body, sewing one on each side of the wheel. (See photos for placement if neccessary.) Repeat with both #13 parts and the back wheel.

      Oh no! I can assure you that this is a complete coincidence. I spent weeks trying to work out this pattern–it gave me such a headache! 😦 I designed it after a picture of my uncle’s old motorcycle from when I was a kid, except his was much darker in color.
