JOHN DEERE TRACTOR


JOHN DEERE TRACTOR
This is a pattern for a John Deere Tractor.  This is not an easy item to make.  It has many pieces.  Unless you are a moderately experienced crocheter, I would not attempt this.  I will do my best to give effective instructions.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask them.  Before any says anything, I know that the green I used is not exactly John Deere Green but it was the closest that I could find.  If anyone knows where I can find a four-ply yarn that is closer to the right color, please let me know.
