It has been a while since I've posted, but I have a new pattern written out and have decided to post it early. Please be forwarned - it has not been tested yet. Please let me know if anything needs to be corrected.

UPDATE (3 Dec 2007): I have now tested the pattern. There was an error found in row 17. The pattern, as listed below, is now believed to be correct. (Corrections to the pattern are listed in red.)

Thanks for the taxi pattern. I just adapted to make it into a car without the taxi indicator light on top and also omitted the TAXI lettering on the side. Also I made the car pattern itself all in knit.

Hi
I was looking for a pattern for the February challenge from the charity 'Knit-a-Square'. Their challenge this month is to knit blanket squares on a transport theme,so your car and van patterns will be ace for this! Hopefully they will soon be appearing on blankets keeping some of the Sowetan orphans warm and cozy. Many thanks to you for posting your patterns.
