Crochet Mini Airplane

Crochet Mini Airplane

The idea for this mini airplane came up when I was creating my little panda bear – pilot. And every pilot needs a plane, so here it is 🙂

What you’ll need?

  • 100% Cotton yarn (I’ve used Alize Bella) in blue and red
  • 2 mm crochet hook
  • 3 small buttons
  • Sewing needle and thread
  • Bubble pins and scissors

To crochet the mini airplane, you would need the following skills:

  • crocheting a chain
  • magic ring (m.r.)
  • single crochet (sc)
  • slip stitch (sl. st.)
  • increase/decrease (inc. / dec.)

Fuselage (use blue yarn):

1r. 6 sc in m. r. (6)

2r. Inc in every st (12)

3r. [1 sc, Inc] (18)

4r. [2 sc, Inc] (24)

5r. – 8r. Sc in every stitch around (24)

9r. [6 sc, Dec] (21)

10r. Sc in every stitch around (21)

11r. [5 sc, Dec] (18)

12r. Sc in every stitch around (18)

Start stuffing

13r. [4 sc, Dec] (15)

14r. Sc in every stitch around (15)

15r. [3 sc, Dec] (12)

16r. Sc in every stitch around (12)

17r. [3 sc, Dec] (9)

18r. [1 sc, Dec] (6)

Stuff the fuselage nice and firm. Finish with a slip stitch. Leave a long end and with cotton darning needle tighten all stitches. Cut the yarn, hiding the end inside the fuselage.

Tail (use red yarn):

1r. 6 sc in m. r. (6)

2r. [1 sc, Inc] (9)

3r. Sc in every stitch around (9)

4r. [2 sc, Inc] (12)

Finish with a slip stitch. Leave a long end for sewing. Do not stuff it, just flatten it.

Wings (Make 2, use red yarn):

1r. 6 sc in m. r. (6)

2r. [1 sc, Inc] (9)

3r. Sc in every stitch around (9)

4r. [2 sc, Inc] (12)

5r. – 6r. Sc in every stitch around (12)

Finish with a slip stitch. Leave a long end for sewing. Do not stuff them, just flatten them.

Propeller (Make 2, use red yarn):

1r. 8 sc in m.r. (8)

2r. – 5r. Sc in every stitch around (8)

6r. [2 sc, Dec] (6)

7r. Sc in every stitch around (6)

Finish with a slip stitch. Leave a long end for sewing. Do not stuff them, just flatten them. Using the longs ends left, sew the two parts together.

Time for assembling:

First, start with the tail:

Continue with the wings, sew them approximately between 6th and 12th rows

Finally sew the propeller:

Final touches:

I’ve used 2 small black buttons for the wheels and sewn them below the wings and one blue button for the propeller.

Your mini airplane is ready 🙂
