locomotive and car
Two weeks ago I showed how to make the locomotive on the loom. But you may also want something to display candy, decorations, or gifts.
Next, you need a candy or toy car for the locomotive to pull. Make 2 or more. Use a 24 peg loom for this. E-wrap all the pegs.
Alternate flat stitch rounds with knit rounds for 12 rounds. With tail and yarn needle pick off all stitches and pull closed. Draw the bottom closed in a flat line and seam. See diagram below. Fold down top two rounds.
Make the bed – e-wrap all pegs and knit for 25 rounds. Knit off all stitches. Stuff with foam, sew edges closed. Be sure not to pull it tight, like a circle. Sew it lengthwise.
Make 2 wheels – with black, e-wrap all pegs and knit 1 round, purl 1 round, knit 1 round. Use large eyed needle to pick off all the stitches and pull closed. Sew 1st round closed. Sew wheels to bed.
Hmm. Wonder if there are more parts we can add? We'll have to test and see.
