Review:

Cathy Smith has released a new crochet book with Martingale that has adorable designs for crochet cars and trucks. The eight crochet patterns in Honk! Beep! Vroom! allow you to create a mixture of different vehicles that would be perfect as a play set for young girls and boys. Many are the classic toy cars that kids love to play with including the police car, fire truck and ambulance. You will also find a taxi cab, dump truck and school bus. The collection of crochet patterns is rounded out with a convertible and a VW Beetle. Make the whole collection or stick to a smaller section of the set depending on the play set you wish to create. There are instructions for using craft materials to create wheels that actually roll so that these vehicles can be used in play. It's the movable wheels that really set these patterns apart from other amigurumi crochet cars. The book offers detailed information about how to make the toys roll. However, you also have the option of creating the patterns as crocheted stuffies instead. Each crochet pattern comes with a simple description, high quality photos and detailed written instructions. The book includes a section with basic crochet instructions in case you need to brush up on any of the stitches required for the patterns. Overall these are simple patterns that rely on single crochet. --Review excerpted from Kathryn Vercillo, About.com Crochet, June 2015

This new book published by Martingale has not only projects for children but also for adults. Crocheters everywhere will enjoy making these interesting vehicles as gifts. Eight projects complete with moving parts are featured including a police car, taxi, ambulance, convertible car, dump truck, VW Beetle, bus, and fire truck. Geared toward crocheters with intermediate skill levels, readily accessible materials such as plastic canvas, dowels, straws, hot glue gun and a saw to cut the dowels are required. We are not usually expected to use such multi-media materials, but it should not be a deterrent to tackling one of these projects. Some patience and attention to detail in order to make and assemble all the parts is a good place to start! Traditional crochet basics are included in the book along with tips for crocheting with plastic canvas. --Review excerpted from Gwen Blakley Kinsler, Crochet Queen: Royal Ramblings Blog, June 2015
