081 Jaeger Bikini 4637
A skimpy late seventies / eighties bikini and a not quite so skimpy beach dress (overtop ) to go with it.
A very quick and easy pattern; a cute little bikini bottom pantie.
The cup size would be easy to alter for a really good fit- useful if you intend to get actually get wet in it!
Size 32 to 36 inch ( 81 to 91 cm) bust
Size 34 to 38 inch ( 86 to 97 cm) hip
Only two or three balls of cotton yarn required for the bikini! (Jaeger Summer Spun Yarn had a slight “boucle” effect, but plain would work too).
082 Easter Bunny Family 7005
An absolutely charming family of vintage bunnies- they would be just darling as an Easter centrepiece or gift- even just one of them.
There is Reggie, his wife Rosie and their three children Buster, Bunty and baby Binky. Such lovely little faces and they even have their own little snacks –carrots, cabbage leaves and stalks! Awww!
The size variation is achieved with different instructions AND different weight yarn;
Reggie is in DK (worsted) on size 10(3 US), Rosie in 4ply (sportweight) on size 12(2 US) and the children in 3ply on size 14(0 US). No finished size is given, nor is there a specific tension mentioned.
( I think in the days that this was printed knitting was so common it was assumed you would know by the yarn and needles. ) The biggest ear is 24 rows- so I would guesstimate from this that Reggie is about 8 inches tall (11 to the tip of his ear).
The pattern is very detailed, given almost row by row-so it looks a lot but is very easy knitting.
I do hope some of these get made as they are really lovely- WonkyZebras’ favourites.
This is a small pattern with a lot of pages; so please say if you need a larger font and I will resize it, but it will then need to be sent as more than one email.
083 Tank Top Dress 5026
A very 1960’s dress.
A dress that needs all the “S” words; Sixties, simple, slim, sporty, shell, stylish, shift and stunning.
Plus it is also very simple to make- it even says so inside- and comes in sizes from 32″ to 40″ inch bust.
You could make this even shorter as a tunic over trousers (pants), a tennis dress, or just as a tank top if you get bored crocheting big items…
The back page gives a basic crochet lesson-all you need to make it. So come on, no more excuses to stop you; get on with it!
084 Tunic Dress 6232
An iconic early seventies flared A-line mini dress.
It is quite daring 😉 as a good chunk of the already short hem is in a see- through lace stitch!
A great mid season piece as it is quite cosy, if made in yarn not cotton, and would look good over trousers (pants) or just as it is on warmer days.
It would easily adapt into sleeveless summer dress- or even make up as a fabulous short skirt.
The pattern also contains a “how to crochet” lesson if you just want to have a go and start crocheting!
