073 Vintage Bedsocks 2233

Three sets of cosy toes!

A real vintage feel pompom slipper plus two bed socks ; one a sweet quick and easy garter stitch with a lace trim (but you could work that plain for an even quicker pair).
The other set of bedsocks could be used as pretty hike socks as well, with their turned down lacy cuff.

WZ has noticed this pattern appears to be an newer version of Sirdar 77493 (see other listing)
View B and C are repeated in that one, (along with an open toe mule in crochet and a lace up bootlet sofa sock). So you may wish to base your choice on that info.

If you want the other one, at half price, when you buy this one, just contact WZ first please, and we can sort a listing out for you..

There are some crochet bedsocks in the shop as well…

074 3teacosies 3650

074 3teacosies 3650

3 gorgeous texture vintage tea cosies from Bestway ( probably 1950’s )

A great way to practice textures with rib and bobble patterns ; by the time you have made one, you will become quite accomplished in forming that particular stitch.

The cover says “chunky” but actual tension is given as 16 by 24 on number 4 (uk) needles to 10cm (4inches), so not very thick.

075 Blue Bikini and Hat

075 Blue Bikini and Hat

The pool looks chilly but the bikini looks hot.

A stunningly classic 70’s bikini- and easy to make too.

The matching hat needs “gentle stretching with the hands to achieve floppiness”- Yup- that would do it! (Sorry but there are no other pictures of the hat.)

Two pretty bedsocks a mule style slipper (in crochet) and a fancy lace up sofa sock !

View A in pink could be worn as a day sock with its lace turned down cuff.

WZ has noticed this pattern appears to be an older version of Sirdir 2233 (see other listing).

View A and B are repeated in that one, along with a real retro granny slipper. So you may wish to base your choice on that info.

077 Lace Bikini Stitchcraft June72

077 Lace Bikini Stitchcraft June72

A rather daring lace bikini from the mid 70’!

Described as “a stunning crochet bikini for sun-worshipping”, which is how they get around the problem of actually swimming ( or moving at all ) in it. LOL
It has a lovely shaped top- but a nude lining may be a good idea unless you want to keep very still once you have arranged yourself in it. The panties also have a 5 inch lace panel at the sides –that will create some interesting tan lines for you.

Straight forward instructions and so it should be a quick make.

The yarn given is good old Patrons Promise again! (Didn’t they use anything else then?)

It is a “crimped” finish (like crepe) acrylic with a slight sheen to it. Nowadays I think a soft cotton or bamboo yarn would work well.

Wonky Zebra has a photo of a ball of Patons Promise in listing 045 and on his website – as so many of the patterns from his collection use it; http://www.wonkyzebra.com

What a great little dolly rocker dress!

Simple sixties mod styling at its best.

Such an easy make as there is only one, yes ONE, pattern row repeated throughout. The flared shaping is formed in a technically elegant way by working extra or fewer stitches between the simple pattern groups.

If you can make a chain (single crochet) and a treble (US double) crochet then you can make this dress.

Why practise by making a boring scarf or blanket when you could make this to wear. Make it even shorter for a great tunic over jeans.

Special Day Crochet Dresses for girls

Two beautiful lace dresses for any special spring or summer event- confirmation or first communion, bridesmaid, wedding or just a party. Simple, but very effective and bound to make any little girl feel very dressed up.

Quick and easy to make, they are worked in a synthetic yarn, which would be lighter and warmer in wear. (Cotton would look fabulous, but be heavier to wear.)

The one on the right has a solid bodice and the skirt is worked downwards from the waist, but separately from it; so useful for altering length on both, or adding to later as she grows. The one on the left is worked up from hem- but would also make a pretty tunic over trousers if it gets too short (or even just because it looks nice that way too!)

You could also use the photo as a great image for a communion card, or gift tag for the finished dress- so I have photo shopped the image on the PDF into 2 separate girls as well, in case you want them!

Size 26-30 inch chest

Length from shoulder 23.5- 27.5 inches

080 Crochet Waistcoat 6423

080 Crochet Waistcoat 6423

A pretty retro waistcoat; really quick and easy but very effective. Get the look in next to no time.

Made in simple treble pattern, with a pretty chunky lace border worked on completed vest.

Size bust 34 to 37 inch : 86 to 84 cm

Length is given as 26 inches

About WonkyZebra

WonkyZebra and I have collected tons of patterns over the years. Before this was fashionable and the whole “vintage” thing happened, it was just considered to be a funny sort of hoarding; a bit “anorak” to use one of the slightly mocking terms us English specialise in. Now it is a wonderful source of lost treasure in the online textile universe; who would have guessed! It was quite a relief to find there are many others “out there” who appreciate a good pattern-and maybe even enjoy using them! I think it is a good thing anyone can get access to the designs instead of just those lucky enough to find them in gran’s workbox or charity shops. So, here we are with all our hoard, trying to make it all available as fast as we can…hooves don’t help much so it is down to me. I squeeze it in between actual crocheting, knitting, life, and other sundries. Vintage patterns; PDFs for sale at http://wonkyzebra.etsy.com
