WonkyZebra 241 Patons Promise 170 Romantic Dress

WonkyZebra 241 Patons Promise 170 Romantic Dress

A pattern for a knitted dress in a classic seventies shape, very flattering and comfortable.The mini would be great for a retro party look, especially in sparkly yarn; but imagine how cosy and attractive the maxi would look for an evening at home.A simple 6 row pattern and four of these are just plain knit, at that.Measurements yarn requirements etc are in last picture.

Patons Promise yarn was a DK crepe synthetic yarn (approx worsted weight).

WonkyZebra 242 Pink Granny Top 3003

WonkyZebra 242 Pink Granny Top 3003

A pattern for a bang on trend Granny Square Top.

A very nicely shaped mesh tanktop with an inserted cluster stitch granny square motif.

This one is made in one solid colour; but you could easily embrace this season’s catwalk look and go for the whole seventies multicolour look.

A very quick stash busting little project and a good starter garment for those just branching out from beginning to crochet.

WonkyZebra 244 Arch Lace Wedding Dress FK75

WonkyZebra 244 Arch Lace Wedding Dress FK75

A pattern for a beautiful crocheted heirloom wedding dress.

This lovely dress has a modest round necked bodice with woven ribbon inserts, matching the deep cuffs. The sleeves and skirt are worked downwards from the bodice in a bold and dramatic “arch stitch” lace (making it easy to adjust size).

The romantic look is accessorized with a dainty Juliet cap, also threaded with ribbons given a medieval effect.

The whole ensemble could also be made as a shorter dress and would look lovely on any occasion.

WonkyZebra 245 Frilly Hot Pants 5137

WonkyZebra Vintage Crochet Pattern 245 PDF Frilly Hot Pants

A pattern for a really pretty, front buttoned jacket-and cute frilly hot pants to wear under it (if you want to, for tennis –or just for fun)!The jacket- (cardigan, tunic thing) has a great empire line shape and sweet frill detail (optional) on hem and sleeves. The solid stitch pattern is an unusual variation on straightforward plain rows.I am not sure what the tennis connection was with these Barbara Warner patterns; however there are a few of these dual use sets that can be worn for tennis and also as outer wear (I only have some –but have seen others). Maybe it was a way of having hot pants (shorts) introduced to the more usual kind of patterns.All of them are constructed from the waistband upwards or downwards- a very sensible design solution that is ideally suited to crochet, and allows for easy alteration. Go Barbara!

WonkyZebra 246 A Puppet Toys

WonkyZebra 246 Puppet Toys

A Puppet Toys sewing pattern printable PDF for some charming farmyard toy puppets. In a naive, almost colonial or “primitive” style, they are very easy too make.You could also make them as soft toys without strings, instead of as puppets.NB The instructions are on a grid to enlarge to the full size shown in the photograph, but this can be done easily on a copier.The instructions also say to use wire to hold on the limbs- but I think these days we tend to be more aware of the possible danger of this sort of thing and so buttons and thick thread would work well and also probably look much better!

WonkyZebra 247 Chevron Cushion GH4

WonkyZebra 247 Chevron Cushion GH4

A vintage pattern for this fab ripple crochet cushion (pillow) from the seventies, including button tutorial.If you fancy a go at ripple patterning –but can’t face the lo-o-o-o-ng rows of an afghan…
…than this is the one for you!A great project and comfy as well. (Also very good for stash busting.)*Please note the pattern for the button is not actually part of this pattern -just referred to in the instructions. However I have also included the tutorial pages for crochet buttons with the reworked cushion pages!

WonkyZebra 248 Rag Rug GH6

WonkyZebra 248 Rag Rug GH6

A PDF Pattern for a fresh and funky seventies take on the traditional rag rug.This bold citrus combination is not your traditional granny rug; it would look great in pinks and purples for a girls’ bedroom, or cream for a more subtle look.Full instructions given for making a rag rug, but you could also use this shape for mats or coasters on anything you want circular.

WonkyZebra 249 Crochet Cushions GH6

WonkyZebra 249 Crochet Cushions GH6

A set of fab, funky, retro cushions (pillows) to make.You can make the whole cushion or just use the motifs to decorate a cushion you already have.A great way to practice your crochet skills with something that looks great but doesn’t have to fit you.

WonkyZebra 250 Granny Square Bag

WonkyZebra 250 Granny Square Bag

A nice pattern for a bag made from a slightly more lacy granny square than usual; it would make up into a pretty afghan blanket too.Great for using up stash oddments.N.B. for this bag you will need to buy handles, or crochet some. One method is to crochet over sturdy plastic tubing!I have included a different lace motif from the pattern book as well!

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
