PATTERN DETAILS

I have got quite into my classic cars, and thought what could be more iconic that a vintage New York Cab. I have tried to be as accurate as possible using wool. There is shaping, icord knitting, colourcharts, and sewing up. But I think the final results are well worth it. The main body of the car is knitted in three sections. Then there are wheels and wheel rims to sew on, as well as the front grill, headlights, and bumpers. So there is a bit of work, but you will end up with your own American icon. You can read a bit more about this pattern, see more photos, and see what inspired me on my blog. http://ginxcraft.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/taxi.html BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting Sewing up PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Patons Gold DK

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
