Now join white color in second st from top, ch 8 and join with sc in 4th st. of the front of the ambulance, sc in next st, sc back in every chain. See the picture:



Wheels:
I made the back wheel slightly bigger than the front one.

For the back wheel: With blue color - in mc sc 7, ss. Join black color, ch 2, dc in same st, work 2 dc in all st, ss at the end in ch 2 (14 st). Cut the yarn and weave in the ends.

Front wheel: Same as the back wheel but with 6 sc. In mc sc 7, ss in the first sc. Join black color, ch 2, dc in same st, 2 dc in every st, ss at the end (12 st). Cut the yarn and weave in the ends. 

Sew the wheels to the ambulance.

Cross and Lights: The cross is done with surface crochetting (just 2-3 st horizontally and vertically). However if you don't like surface crochetting you may just sew it with small amount of yarn. The lights are sewn with small amount of yarn.

Emergency Light: Join yellow and make 3 sc. Join blue color and make another 3 sc as next row.

BraceNet




Another easy to crochet accessory - can be made as bracelet, headband or even as necklace. The gauge is not important for this project although using small hook and fine yarn looks better (for me at least). Just increase/decrease the starting chain as described in the pattern.

Row 1: Ch1, sc in same st, *ch 5, sc in 4th st from hook*, repeat * - *, turn.
Row 2: *Ch 5, sc in next ch 5 space *, repeat * - *, after the sc in the last ch 5 work ch 2, followed by dc in the last st of the row, turn.

Make the same on the opposite side of the bracelet, only make button holes to fit the buttons. 
For the button holes - start the row with ch1, sc in same st, then ch 3 or 4 st (depending on the size of your buttons), skip the same number of st and sc till 4 or 5 st left, then ch again 3 or 4 and sc at the end. Now turn and make another row of sc.


For necklace/headband - chain the desired lenght and go with the pattern - just make sure the starting chain is multiple of 4 + 2.
