Car Doily for my Tweety Jeep

Look what I made!!! Isn't this neat!
I got the idea from HapiKamper on Ravelry.
I had to make one for myself.
I took the doily pattern and used a bigger hook and adjusted
it to my tire. I'm so EXCITED!!! Can't wait to drive around
and show it off!!


this is the link to the pattern I used:

I have never seen one of those before, but what an awesome idea! (I would never be able to convince the hubby to let me do that though if we had an outer spare).

Great job!

What a cute idea this is the cutest thing for a truck or jeep. I really want to make one for my baby bronco. Sadly it is on its last tire and i am trying to baby it so i can keep it longer. What a way to go out in style.

Makes me feel so good that everyone loves my Car doily as much as I do. So far no one has stolen it. I think people are more excited about seeing it then stealing it. I can't even count the number of people that have commented on it.
I'm busy making more designs.

Hi Linda, found you on ravelry in the potholder group....wanted to stop by, awesome cover....really shows off your love of the craft...and brings awareness to the hook/yarn it is not dead.

Wow! Lovely! It almost makes me want to get a car with an outside-mounted spare tire. I wonder how I can adorn my bicycleÉ

Gorgeous!! You said you're going to try other designs--what kind of materials have you tried? I was thinking that hardware store twine/cord section might've something plastic-y that's smoother--and therefore easier to wash (either with hose outdoors or in washing machine) than yarn (fibers of latter would naturally grab onto dirt, car oil, etc)

HapiKamper said she used orlon acrylic yarn (from decades old stash) and size I hook for her car doily whose photo on Ravelry inspired yours.

Pinwheel Doily pattern you chose is very elegant--could you PLEASE repeat end of URL of pattern? I can't see beyond "celtw???"

THANKS!!

I SO want to do this for my spare tire cover on my little vintage travel trailer, but can't get the link to open. I really am not experienced enough to know how to convert a pattern to fit. Any suggestions?
