Scouts in Scotland have been hard at work coming up with a fun way to test their knitting skills and raise some much-needed funds at the same time.
Dingwall Scout Troop in Ross-shire are trying to come up with enough money for an international expedition camp in Denmark, which according to the Ross-shire Journal would see them strengthen their bonds with the local Pilhave group.
But, rather than resorting to a traditional fair or event, the children have decided to knit their own car coat, which promises to turn heads in the county.
The "urban knit" is hoped to be ready for June and will feature knitted woollen patches covering the entirety of the vehicle.
This allows the scouts to tap into the skills they learnt at the 22nd World Scout Jamboree in Sweden, where everyday items were covered in knitting.
However, this time the children are being very ambitious by attempting to cover their local leader's Renault Megane.
Troop leader Anthea Mackenzie told the newspaper that the desired end result will be "a cross between Elmer the Elephant and Joseph's Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat".
Every patch can be sponsored for £1 and once the summer arrives and the car is hopefully completed, it will be displayed in Dingwall, with rides around town in it offered in exchange for further donations towards the trip cost.
The group is planning to visit the town of Vallensbaek just outside Copenhagen, with three scouts, two young leaders and two Dingwall scout leaders heading on the visit.
A Facebook page has been created so that sponsors can get in touch and all assistance is being welcomed by the scout leader.
Ms Mackenzie said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for the scouts to experience international scouting at a small event, making friends which will last a lifetime, creating opportunities for the future and a keen interest in attending other, bigger international scouting events."
