Who can resist the classic VW Beetle? With it's fabulous friendly shape it was the inspiration for the Hug-a-Bug, a cuddly car, just for you! You can make your own Hug-a-Bug using our instantly downloadable PDF crochet pattern. You don't even need to wait for the postman! To make your Hug-a-Bug you'll need Chunky Yarn (I used Wendy Merino Chunky and Wendy Serenity Chunky), oddments of double knitting yarn, a 3.5 and 4.5mm hook and some toy stuffing. I used 130g/182 metres of red, 100g/140 metres of purple, 10g/14 metres of cream and 20g/28 metres of grey in Chunky and oddments of orange, silver grey, red and cream in Double Knit. Don't worry if you're not familiar with intarsia colour changing, I've written the pattern so you can make the windows separately and stitch them on afterwards. I'm based in the UK so my patterns are all written in UK terms BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic crochet stitches, increasing and decreasing you can use intarsia but there are alternative instructions if you're not familiar with it GAUGE approximately 4sts and 5 rows to 2.5cm/1" SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 26cm/10" long, 15cm/6" tall and 17cm/6.5"wide SUGGESTED YARN 370 meters of Chunky weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN I used Wendy Merino Chunky and some Wendy Serenity Chunky COLORWAY Red, dark purple, plus grey and cream
