more patterns from WonkyZebra, if you have a specific request then please do ask… there are lots as yet unlisted…
WonkyZebra 191 Empire Line Mini
Great in the full on seventies colour too!
WonkyZebra 192 Sevenites Jabot MiniMaxi Dress
Make it mini, midi or maxi depending ( on your patience level – LOL )
Instructions are given for two different weight of wool.
For a sleeker, less niche look you can omit the lacy jabot or bib as they call it.
WonkyZebra 193 Mother Daughter Yolked Dress
Lots of sizes anyway, from bust 22” right through to 38”- so good for petite sizes, plus it is worked top down so length is just “stop when done”….and indeed a pretty look for girls of all ages.
Also a good first project as it is super easy; worked from a neck yoke down, with no side seams, in an easy repeat shell pattern.
PLUS; it would make a fab short summer top or slightly longer loose over jeans.
What are you waiting for? LOL
WonkyZebra 194 Ten Hats
They are all completely legible, so I have not retouched the scans. However the Robin pattern for the 3 “shaggy darling” (REALLY!) ones is very …creased! Beyond trying to salvage cosmetically, but completely usable.
There is also a scarf and mittens in this pattern.
“La Boule de Neige” was a 70%Angora/30%Wool mix- tension 18 stitches x24 rows over 4” (10cm) stocking stitch on size 5 (UK) needles.
“Shaggy Darling” was a blend of Mohair/Wool/Nylon- shaggy indeed- not to mention a quite hairy texture. Tension between 22 to 14 stitches to 4” (10cm) on various different needles.
WonkyZebra 195 Afghan Blanket
Step by step instructions for lots of variations on the granny square motif; and a specific layout as shown. Of course, as with all granny blankets, you can use any combination of motifs, just as you wish. Use a mad set of ‘stash busting’ colours like this, a small repeating set- or a range of tones from one or two colours; up to you.
* I also include “how to” picture crochet notes, USA > UK conversion charts and my notes on vintage yarns.
WonkyZebra 196 Crocheted Shirt Dress
The dress is worked up from the hem in one piece. You could just make a good T-shirt top, or work the pattern ( or another stitch pattern ) downwards from the waist quite easily. This stitch would make a fab skirt on its own too.
WonkyZebra 197 Turquoise Bikini
The bikini has great shaping- but the panties are quite deep by modern standards. It would be easy to trim them down for a more modern look- just leave off the lace stitches (quicker too!).
Made originally in nylon 4ply (fingering) yarn, I think a cotton or bamboo mix would work well if you can’t get that. Nylon would have been more water resistant so you’ll need to “soak test” before swimming!
WonkyZebra 198 Ribbed Bikini
( It’s a bit too deep to be called bandeau!)
Good for exercise and training!
WonkyZebra 199 MadMen Wiggle Dress
A good, 3 sizes range; 34-40 inch bust, 36-42 inch hip- length 40-41inches adjustable.
made in DK (worsted) weight yarn
WonkyZebra 200 Hexagonal Blanket
This would make a great medium-term project as an infill between more complicated or urgent stuff…
