Another flower-centric steering wheel cover and another great name for a pattern – what’s not to love? This pattern is similar to the first one on this list in that it uses granny squares, but the flowers are in different hues, and the whole thing comes together slightly differently.

This is one seriously fuzzy, cute, and fun seat belt cover that we just had to include in this list of free car accessories crochet patterns. If you’re going to use the recommended yarn type to get this look, it would be wise to learn the foundation half double crochet (Fhdc) stitch because it can be difficult to see your stitches with this yarn.

5. Car Vent Crochet Flower Clip

Add color, whimsy, and cuteness to your car with these lovely flowers. You can turn these into DIY air fresheners by dropping on a few dabs of essential oils. The pattern follows the reverse shell border and is quick and easy once you get the hang of it.

Car cup holders can attract dirt, grime, and moisture and are hard to clean. These problems can all be solved with crocheted cup holders that can easily be removed and washed when dirty. This simple pattern can be completed in less than an hour, and they make great gifts, too. The pattern includes verbiage you can include with the gift to let your recipient know just how handy these cute guys are.

For parents of little ones, this car seat poncho keeps them cute and warm. The pattern is fairly simple, with only basic stitches used (ch, sl st, BLO, SC, and HDC), but the SC ribbing might be new for some. Luckily, the pattern includes a video tutorial that should make it a breeze. 

We have the pattern for you. 

8. Crochet Mini Plant Holder

Crochet Mini Plant Holder

This is one of the most unique crochet car accessories out there – a mini plant holder! It’s about the size of a tree air freshener and holds a tiny plant. Quick to make and great to gift, this does require quite a few stitch types and uses some intermediate terminology. That said, advanced beginners can probably handle it if they take their time and watch the included tutorials.

9. Car Seat Cloak

Similar to the car seat cover above, this poncho has an added hood and is larger, making it a good choice for older kids. It uses the fun crab stitch (aka reverse single crochet (RSC)) that takes a minute to perfect but whips up quickly.

The advanced beginner can easily complete this cute and functional ice scraper mitt with simple stitches, including sc, hdc, and sl st. Once again, this makes a great gift, too!

We have a few seat belt strap covers on this list because those straps can get painful after a while. The same is true for the little ones! These car seat belt strap covers keep them cozy and comfortable for long car rides. As a fun bonus, this pattern includes instructions for making the same pattern for adult-sized seat belts. Make matching covers for everyone in the car!

13. Car Air Freshener Holder

Next up in our list of free car accessories crochet patterns are these air freshener holders made to hold Scentsy air fresheners, but you could use a number of different air fresheners in them. A single skein can make many of these, and we suggest using a cotton yarn so that you don’t have to worry about the fabric stretching.

14. Car Wash Mitt Crochet Pattern

Who says car washing can’t be stylish? These car wash mitts use a 300g ball of Barnet Blanket yarn and are super absorbent. I have a few extra balls of this yarn that I used to make a few baby blankets, and this is the perfect way to use them up without having to buy more skeins to make an entire blanket. 

Get started on your car wash mitt.
