more Vintage crochet and knitting patterns at WonkyZebra
Thank you customers who have joined Etsy especially to buy from WonkyZebra….
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
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
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).
This is WonkyZebra’s absolute favourite – no prizes for guessing why !
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.
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.
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!
