Crochet Pattern for Cosy Layers

WonkyZebra 975

The WZ975 is a yarn driven pattern with a rather an odd combination of garments linked only by the yarn itself-and a “warm but lightweight” theme I guess. However both are very nice, easy to crochet and to wear.

The car coat; named for those days of popping in and out of the car, for driving rather than serious walking requiring a heavy “sensible” coat. This one is shown in a 2 row stripe in the shell stitch; but it looks good in just one colour too (see above) and the length is easy to alter for a perfect custom fit, making a lightweight but cosy long jacket.

The vest or waistcoat would make a warm layer without too much weight and is quick to make because of the large scale lace stitch pattern; choose a soft yarn for the same effect.

While I am on the subject of cosy crochet; this is a lovely jacket WZ687 – rare in crochet although I have many… ( many ! ) in knitting patterns.

The horrid blotchy yarn is not helping (at all, yuk!) but the shape is lovely… look beyond the photo and see the lovely new project beckoning  😉

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
