The centre of the wheel: blue circle + star lines
1. Insert the hook in rnd 7 and crochet sl sts around.
2. Cut long yarn tail and embroider the star lines (the centre is in the MR).
3. Go to the centre of the wheel and embroider woven wheel stitch (see: the tutorial about four leaf clover).


Place the wheels on the red base, check if they are placed right and finally sew them.

 

Grey frame for the train

Himalaya Dolphin Baby: dark grey, crochet hook 4.5 mm

Firstly I made 3 dark grey stripes to join the opposite wheels...



 
...but then I realized it is not quite good idea (stripes were too flexible and I needed something to stiffen them).

To stiffen the base I came up with an idea of making the frame with PVC pipe (two types of diameter):
1. thinner (x 3) for joining the opposite wheels (8 cm long, 12 mm in diameter) and I crochet the tube for the pipe:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in MR [6]
Rnd 2-13: 6 sc [6]
Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing crochet tube to the wheels.


2. thicker for the train length (41 cm long, 2 cm in diameter).

Rnd 1: 6 sc in MR [6]
Rnd 2: 6 inc [12]
Rnd 3-55: 12 sc [12]
 Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing crochet tube.



Grey connectors for the wheels (make 4)

Himalaya Dolphin Baby: dark grey, crochet hook 4.5 mm

Work in rows: 1 tch and turn in the end of each row.
Row 1: ch 3, insert the hook in 2nd st from the hook and work 2 sc [2]
Rows 2-20: 2 sc [2]

Finally crochet the blue screws: 3 sc in MR and fasten off leaving a tail for sewing.
Sew the screws to the connectors.

Join the red and light grey base with sl sts. Join with the red HDB yarn.
