Rain, Rain Go Away

Where I live summer time was welcomed in with a tropical storm that brought three days of rain that just didn’t look like it was ever going to stop. Today there’s still a tropical breeze but the sun peeked through for a little while this afternoon.

Summertime Towel Set

When I saw this crochet pattern for a Summertime Towel Set it made me smile and I chose it for today’s freebie pattern.

Butterflies and Flowers, you can’t get much more summer time than that.

The towel’s also have the prettiest purple crocheted edge.

This crochet pattern is from a Lily Mills Design Booklet titled Fair, Bazaar and Gift Crocheting.

Crochet Patterns from the Early 20th Century for Men’s Suspenders

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.

Minted Tea Cooler Recipe

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.
