How to crochet a very tiny fire truck (e.g. as keychain)

I don’t exactly know why, but I developed quite a passion for crocheting cars and especially fire trucks. Crocheted toy cars are just so cuddly and sweet. And the one I want to share with you today is especially cute, because it is so tiny. It is ideal for you to get rid of some bits and pieces of yarn, it’s quickly made and it turns out to be the perfect gift for small and grown out fire fighters. So, what are we waiting for? Lets got and crochet a fire truck!

You need

Les s than 1 skein of red yarn

bits and pieces of blue, light blue, yello and grey yarn

hook, which is slightly too small for your yarn (I use 2,0 when 3,0 is recommended)

soft filling

Abbreviations

ch = chain

dec = decrease
