Lightening Race Car Crochet Wall Plaque

Hello, nice to see you again. If this is your first visit to my Blog, I hope you enjoy it and like what you see.
I have four granddaughters and 2 grandsons and I enjoy making nice things for all of them. I can find lots and lots of pretty patterns for the girls but the selections for boys is more limited. Boys deserve equal attention. Don't you agree? It took me less than a day to make this plaque. Considering I had to create the pattern as well, it came together very fast. Assuming you know the basic crochet stitches, this should be an easy project to complete.
I try to make some improvements with each new post. My goal with this post was to give you the instructions in PDF format. As I was trying to upload, using the PDF feature, I found out that this feature is not available with Blogger. After doing a little research, I found another way to include this feature in my post. I am a bit literate when it comes to HTML and was hoping to create a clickable link. However, in the post previous, it shows the document in its entirety. Since I have not tried this method before, I hope it is still an improvement over the cut and paste method, you had to use before. Please let me know how this works for you. Feedback is always welcome and greatly appreciated.

When writing up the pattern for this, I forgot to include a few photos and descriptions of the Embroidery stitches I used. If you have any questions please refer back to this Blog.

Embroidery stitches used: French Knot -

When instruction direct to sc down side of the windshield, sc evenly down side and all around outline of the car.

Front view for placement of tires

Trace the outline of the project to a stiff piece of cardboard or foam board.

I cut away an additional 1/8 of an inch from the template. This is a back view of my plaque after gluing the front to the board 

My finished plaque. Hoping my grandson will love this as much as I loved making it for him.


  1. Hi Anne

    Thank you for sharing this unique pattern. I am unable to download it for printing and trying it out for my son. Can you please tell me how I can print this?

    1. I just figured it out too - if you go to the small box in the top right hand corner of the square with the actual pattern, one of the buttons says pop out - if you click on that it will open the pattern in another page and you can print or save from there

  2. About how large does this plaque come out? I was hoping to use the crochet part as an applique on a hat if its small enough
