CROCHET: A wonderfully gothic looking long vest or waistcoat to crochet. This stunning vest/waistcoat pattern is from the late sixties… but before then this motif was usually used for tablecloths etc. The motif is called a “Venetian square” and it has an almost tatted look to it, especially with the lattice work borders and picot loop corners.

Especially if made in white….

…in this supersized large trellis, it looks so unusual; but chose a yarn with lots of body so it stays crisp. Cotton would be good, although the pattern is written for yarn. The motif would also be usable for other projects- fab cushions, pillows, or blankets… or even wall art pieces… just with a variation in the thread used.

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
