Title: Crochet Jeep Tire Cover
Post by: sarahj2001 on December 29, 2011 11:53:47 AM
I saw one of these on pinterest and knew I had to make one!

I just used a doily pattern with a bigger hook and yarn.  Then I did some decreases to make it fit snug around the back of the tire.


I'm so excited to make more!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!  I love it! 

Sarah!  I love this!  I have this pinned on pinterest except its yellow.  I keep thinking I'd like to make one but I'm afraid the yarn would fair well in the elements.  What kind of yarn did you use to make this?

I just used red heart.  I'll let you guys know how it holds up.  I was really worried today that the drive to work would just blow it off or something (it was raining/snowing all day too) but it was okay.  But I did tie it on real real good.

I want to learn to crochet just to be able to make one.  My boyfriend is a huge off-Road car builder, and he told me I could have one of the old Toyotas as an art car, if I did the work myself... I think I need to do this on the spare.

This is so great! It looks very well-made.

I'm more of a doily maker, but I'm going to give it a whirl. Thanks so much for sharing your project and providing inspiration!!

I recently scored a lot of macrame cording, kind of a plastic-y type cord. I'm thinking it would hold up in adverse weather and be able to withstand a car wash.

Yea, I thought about using macrame cording too....but really..the cheap red heart (acrylic) is holding up really well!!  A few weeks ago, my husband washed my jeep with his pressure washer and it held up just fine to that.  Now...a real car wash is probably much more powerful.

It's been snowing a lot lately and it does look really dirty now.  I'm thinking about taking it off this weekend and throwing it in the washing machine just to see how it holds up to that.

Title: Looking for a pattern: Crochet Jeep Tire Cover
Post by: IamJacksMom on August 16, 2015 02:59:41 PM
Hi Sarah,

I just joined the Craftsters group. I found your post on your Jeep tire cover and I wondered if you ever made a pattern for it or if you could tell me how you did it. I am new to this but LOVE what you did and would love to make one.  I am happy to pay you for the pattern.

Thanks in advance,

Ann
