Toy Airplane for Avery

Free-Crochet-Pattern-Toy-Airplane

 

While crocheting the Turban for Miss Happy for my best online friend Andrea, I was wanting to come up with something to mail her son, Avery,  as a gift.  I know Avery loves cars and trucks and probably has every cool car and truck that is sold in stores and online. So I decided to make him this awesome little airplane! It didn’t take long before my daughter started crying for an airplane also, so I made her a pink one too!  This is my first time crocheting Amigurumi and I must admit… I think I may start a new addiction! I never realized how fun and easy these would be to make! I hope you and Avery enjoy this free crochet pattern for a toy airplane as much as I and my daughter does.

    You failed to tell us what colors of yarn, and. How much of each. Please let me know .my grandson loves airplanes…thanks

    • CorinaCorina says

      I used less than a half skein for the main color. And you can use whatever colors you think your grandson would like.

    I love your little plane! It’s adorable. I just started to make it but noticed that Rounds 6 and 7 after the window seem to be missing and I am left at a point where I am not in a position to work back UP the side of the windshield so I’ll try and “wing” it from here, but if you do update it, please let me know!

  3. says

    Oops! My mistake! I did not see after row 5 of the windshield to return to the previous portion of the plane, so the instruction numbers looked like there were lines missing to me. But I got it now! :)

    • CorinaCorina says

      I would probably use a light weight yarn and a smaller hook for it. It would work great as an ornament that way!
