WonkyZebra 151 Green Striped Dress C82

 

WonkyZebra 151 Green Striped Dress C82

Another simple mother and daughter crochet dress set. Late sixties styling, easy to make and wear; another good shape to wear over trousers (pants), and lots of scope for playing with different colourways and lengths. The skirt is worked downwards from the waist- so it’s easy to alter the proportions of length.

WonkyZebra 152 Tangerine Dream 6303

 

WonkyZebra 152 Tangerine Dream 6303

A lovely sixties tangerine dream of a dress!This is a really wearable crochet dress; a simple classic style overall, but with lots of detail as well. The stitch is straightforward to do but gives a great texture.Another dress that would wear well over trousers, and also work as a blouse or top..
The original yarn was a “crepe” acrylic with a slight sheen ( see a photo of a ball on the listing for hotpants 045 ) but it would look fab in a soft cotton blend..Sizes – bust 32” to 37” = 81cm to 94cm

Length – 31” to 33” = 77cm to 82cm

Tension – 24 stitches 19 rows to 10cm on UK number8 hook

WonkyZebra 153 Plus Tunic and Trousers 5889

 

WonkyZebra 153 Plus Tunic and Trousers 5889

A great ensemble! And in a larger size range for once! The tunic is a really versatile garment – obviously you can wear it over any pair of trousers (pants)- if you don’t fancy all the crocheting to make matching ones!

It can easily be shortened for a nice summer top.

Worked in an unusual ‘grid’ or ‘block’ stitch in crochet cotton, but another yarn would give s softer look to it .

WonkyZebra 154 Dolls Delight

 

WonkyZebra 154 Dolls Delight

This cute little wardrobe of clothes will kit out any doll(14″ tall) in stylish retro style! They have a lovely vintage vibe to them.

Panties and vest (camisole) are made in 2 ply – outer wear in 4ply (sportweight) .
pattern tension is given as 32stitches and 42 rows per 4 inch (10cm) square, using 4ply on no 11 (UK) needles- but you could possibly adjust these and the yarn to scale it upwards to fit a larger doll (ie American girl).

WonkyZebra 155 Vintage Crochet Hats 1688

 

WonkyZebra 155 Vintage Crochet Hats 1688

Four seventies crochet hats – quite a vintage decade for headgear in both senses of the word!Here are four classics that should cover quit a lot of options. They are worked on 6.00mm ( plus 5.00mm for the blue one ) and take 3-5 50g balls of double (worsted) knit yarn.

WonkyZebra 156 3 Sweetheart Sweaters C327

 

WonkyZebra 156 3 Sweetheart Sweaters C327

Three gorgeous vintage cardigans; in a modern weight yarn for once.These beautiful cardigans have all the vintage shaping but instead of being knitted in the usual very fine yarn, they are made in “quick-to-knit” weight, which is equivalent to our Double Knit or worsted.Great value as they are completely different to each other; any one would look fabulous.

WonkyZebra 157 Zebra Dress C90

 

WonkyZebra 157 Zebra Dress C90

An Iconic late 60s, Barbara Warners Couture Crochet, shift maxi dress.A very simple shape and stitch but the unusual wide banding and subtle guilt bobble stitch trimming make it a very stylish sixties number.A mini and a maxi version are given, and directions for wool (yarn) and crochet cotton.The dress is worked down from the yoke, giving plenty of scope for adjusting length.

This is WonkyZebra’s absolute favourite – no prizes for guessing why !

WonkyZebra 158 Ripple Along Dress Patons 3003

 

WonkyZebra 158 Ripple Along Dress Patons 3003

A really pretty sundress made in a “ripple –along” pattern.

( like the afghans, but more wearable LOL)

Also like the long boho dress –listing 092; but much quicker to make!

This is a great project for those new to garment crochet. The shaping is done by subtle changes in the ripple pattern- no decreases or increases – and no side seams! It would make a pretty tank top as well if you started in at the middle- it is worked hem up.

An easy, low concentration, project good for watching TV with or chatting with friends.

It was made originally in a synthetic crepe double knit (worsted) yarn the popular “Patons Promise”.
( see listing 045 for a photo.)

However it would be lovely in a cotton mix – and you can make your own colour pattern up (stash buster maybe) or even all one colour.

WonkyZebra 159 Lace Sweater Suit 2043

 

WonkyZebra 159 Lace Sweater Suit 2043

A pretty long sleeved crochet sweater with the added bonus of a matching skirt!

A sixties suit, but you could reinvent it as part of a current mix and match collection.

WonkyZebra 160 Blue Fluted Dress C89

 

WonkyZebra 160 Blue Fluted Dress C89

A flirty fluted shape makes this a great little frock! The collar is so unusual and flattering- but I am not sure you really need that pocket! ( I have shown a view without it, just to show you ).

Like most of the sixties mini dresses WonkyZebra loves, it would also make a great  tunic over trousers (pants).

Short and sweet; pretty but neat!

See the last picture for sizes etc.

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
