Since Father’s Day will be here soon I came across a couple crochet patterns for suspenders. Most of the crochet patterns I found on a internet search were for babies, some really cute. But these are vintage patterns from the 1892 and 1907.

Crocheted Suspenders No. 1

The first one is from A treatise On Embroidery; with twenty color illustrations from original models by M. Heminway & Sons Silk Co. You’ll not only find this pattern towards the end of the book, but also some lovely embroidery illustrations of flowers.

Crocheted Suspenders No. 2

The next one is from The Last and Best Book on Art Needlework by The Brainerd & Armstrong Co. from 1892. Click on the PDF to bring up the full book.

Similar Patterns

Both of the directions are similar. A pretty small shell pattern. Both use crochet silk. The first one doesn’t list a crochet hook size, but the second one uses a size No. 2 crochet hook.

Make a Belt

I believe this pattern would make a lovely belt as well as suspenders.

 

Another Crochet Pattern for Suspenders

crochet pattern lace suspenders

I found another crochet pattern for a pair of suspenders that look like lace. This crochet pattern is from the public domain book,

A Treatise on Lace-Making, Embroidery, and Needlework with Barbour’s Irish flax Threads copyright 1892. This book is worth a look. I took a quick look and there are some incredible patterns in it.

These are embellish with cross stitch stitches.

 

 


How to Crochet Suspenders

One more thing. I found a short, 2 minute YouTube Video for crocheting suspenders. It’s for suspenders made with yarn, most likely for kids, but there are a couple pointers in the video that may help with making your suspenders.

So there you have it. Crocheted suspenders to make for Father’s Day. If anyone makes a pair, email me with a photo and I’ll display it in the comments and on Facebook.

This is a great recipe if you have mint growing in your herb garden. If you’ve planted one mint plant, you probably do. Mint will take over the entire garden if you don’t contain it.

Quite A Quacker Duck Amigurumi Vintage Crochet Pattern

Share with your friends...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPrint this pagePin on PinterestShare on Google+

 

I have the cutest little duck crochet pattern to share. Today we call them Amigurumi which means a crocheted or knitted stuffed toy.

Where does the name Amigurumi come from?

The word comes from the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. Most Amigurumi are animals but they can be people or just about any object that is crocheted or knitted and stuffed.

Perfect for the Easter Basket

This would be perfect for an Easter basket or a gift or decoration at a baby shower. The pattern is from an American Thread Star Book titled Aunt Lydia’s Design Studio. The booklet doesn’t have a date listed, but by the looks of the fashions it should be late 1960’s, early 1970’s. With a little investigating, I was right, the date is 1970.

Where to find Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn

Quite A Quacker Duck Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Materials

The yarn required for the duck crochet pattern is Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn.  The yarn colors are White and Bongo (Tangerine Orange).

There are a few hundred listings for Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn on ebay in a variety of colors. I even found a package of two Bongo 70 yard skeins.

 

There is plenty of Aunt Lydia’s Rug Yarn on Amazon too.

The gauge of 3 sts = 1 inch is given in this crochet pattern so that helps. Two buttons are used for the eyes, but if it’s a gift for a baby or toddler I’d substitute something that cannot be removed. Maybe use some black yarn sewn on in a circle for each eye.
