PDF Crochet Pattern for a Beetle Cushion Cover


My husband’s first car was a classic VW Beetle and now my eldest son has just bought his first car.  Guess what! It’s a Beetle!

I like a challenge so I thought I’d have a go at crocheting a cushion cover based on the Beetle.  I wanted to make it look a little more 3D and here is the end result.  I hope you like it!

The cover is made in Super Chunky yarn on a 6mm hook.  I used Wendy Serenity Super Chunky which has a great range of colours.  I used a total of 8 balls of yarn (100g/87 metres per ball), 5.5 balls of the main colour plus 1 colour each for the windows and bumpers/trim.  I used some oddments of double knitting yarn in red and orange for the rear lights and front indicators.  You’ll also need a 16″ to 18″/40cm to 45cm cushion pad (depending how plump you like your cushions!) and a 12″/30cm zip.

The tension on a 6mm hook is 3 sts and 3 rows to 1″/2.5cm.

The finished cushion cover will be approximately 16″/40cm square.

The instructions include charts for the front and back pieces and step by step photos on how to assemble to cushion cover.
