in black, silky or glittery thread for evening…
or soft woolly yarn for cosiness!The buttons on the front are just for show as it is sewn up the front in a seam.
However you could easily crochet a row of chain loop “buttonholes” to make it fasten there; or work the two fronts in one piece to get rid of the seam, as it doesn’t add much to the design.
A crochet dress pattern for a stunning mini dress with amazing “butterfly” sleeves. Personally I think they look more like cobwebs in their structure; this would be absolutely amazing made in black for Halloween ( or evening wear).
Unfortunately it is photographed in a rather revolting blotchy space died yellow yarn. They were really trying to promote this new idea at the time; I have lots of lovely patterns that look horrible photographed in splotchy sludgy colours..
Moving past this, please look at the lovely flirty shape, deep U shaped neckline and those cobweb sleeves made from chain loops.
A straight forward pattern worked from the shoulder downwards, so easy to adjust or turn in to a short top (just stop when done!).
A Knitting PDF Pattern for four pairs of fab retro Slipper Socks ( or Booties )…
Simple patterns in basic garter stitch, suitable even for a beginner.
These will keep you cosy all winter, and would make smashing Christmas gifts for one and all; for Grannies and Aunties (in suitable ladylike colours), teens and girl friends (in bright retro colours) or even for boys ( if you are prepared to duck when they are unwrapped)
A PDF of a pattern for an unusual afghan blanket or rug – using motifs in bright colours set against plain white ones for a striking effect. There are smaller motifs used to fill out the spaces, giving it the look of complex lace, but it is still easy to make.
Of course it can also be made in the traditional granny style with random oddments. (Or all one plain colour!)
Crochet Dress Pattern 255 Vintage PDF CobWeb Mother Daughter Dress
A Vintage PDF Pattern for a Mother and Daughter dress, from the late sixties.
A gorgeous lacy cobweb effect with a pretty picot hemline and waist detail.
The high waistline is accentuated by continuing the bodice pattern into the skirt colour, and as it is worked downward this gives the defined waist detail
There are two dainty stitch patterns which look stunning made in these two delicate greys; but would look great all in black for a Halloween costume or for evening.
Or in white or pastels for weddings.. it is a versatile pattern.
Quick to make and an easy fit worked top down, you will get this done in no time.
They would make a super garland, mobile, or as tree and gift parcel decorations too; you can even do without the rings if you just dip them in PVA glue solution to harden them.
Could be a real hit in a Barbie doll combo, hot colours or black white and grey ( a real wonkyzebra)!
Even as a traditional, random oddments, stash buster.
A pattern for two styles of cute and easy slipper or indoor booties, to keep your toes warm when it is cold.
These are very quick and simple to make, and just take a few oddments of Aran (sport) weight wool.
I would guess if you made them large and in wool, they would felt up a treat, but I haven’t tried it yet myself.
Go with the very popular granny squares, stripes, or even just plain; these would be great for Christmas presents.
