WonkyZebra 294 Petula Clark Leprechaun
A knitting pattern for a mini dress- the classic original version from the 60s.
A PDF knitting vintage pattern for a 1970s, Starsky and Hutch style, man’s jacket.
Very stylish! He looks like he is enjoying his night out, acting like a celebrity.. LOL
However the actual construction of this is very good and can be worn by ladies, as well as action men, who are wanting to keep warm with seventies panache!
There is a neat raglan sleeve shape and great rib border- and of course the optional classic pattern detail.
Please note THERE IS NO CHART for the intarsia ( or actually more like a Fairisle , stranded, technique).
BUT FULL ROW- BY- ROW INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE COLOUR WORK ARE GIVEN.
The patterns are optional anyway.
A PDF of a vintage 1960s pattern for a gorgeous vintage crochet dress. A late sixties style – with the high waisted “dolly girl” look- and very feminine details.
Beautiful but not too “over-the-top” with 2 flounces (or frills, if you must!) to the sleeves and hemline- and colourful stripes. This makes it a really fun party dress- great for festivals or holidays; but worked in one colour without the sleeve frills it would be very nice for day wear too! Kind of grown up cheerleader effect!
It would be easy to use the pattern as a skirt OR as a top because it is worked from the waistline.

A PDF of a vintage 1970s crochet pattern for a classic a line dress; in both child and adult sizes.
The dress has a firm stitch empire line bodice and an absolutely gorgeous chunky lace body.
The lace is made in an easy row pattern with bands of plain crochet; and the high neckline is also edged in the same stitch.
Short and long sleeved options. Unfortunately the pictures are incredibly badly cropped (by the original photographer, who went for art not clarity.. ) but the sleeves are worked in plain treble (US double crochet) with the lace band at the bottom.
It would easily make into a sleeveless version, or as a tunic over trousers.
The dress is worked from the hem up, and although no mention is made, it is shown lined as the lace is fairly open.
Pattern comes with pictorial ‘how to crochet’ on the last page, and with the huge size range is a great value addition to your collection.
A PDF of a vintage 1960s crochet pattern for a delightful sexy little retro suit. It is made in the popular “granny square stitch” or treble –(US double) crochet groups; so super easy to do.
The cut away front edge and deep v neck on the jacket are very feminine, especially when worn alone as pictured. With a camisole or blouse underneath it would be suitable for day wear as well.
You could even make either item separately they would make a great addition to your wardrobe. The easy to wear jacket shape would be good for so many occasions, and the skirt a very sexy little number any time.
A crochet afghan bedspread pattern, made in a patchwork of granny squares and 3D rose motifs. This is very pretty and girly, in a traditional way.
A modern PDF of an original vintage1970s pattern.
As the pattern states- just right for daughters and grandmothers!
BUT…you could always jazz it up and work a multi coloured garden of flowers –hippy style!
I have included with the pattern some step by step tutorial pages to show how to make the rose and a primrose motif square; and can send a basic granny tutorial if you need one (just ask on purchase).
