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.

Welcome to VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie Friday!

Another great gift to make for Father’s Day, Argyle Socks. The argyle pattern is made of diamonds. The overall patterns of diamonds overlap and add a sense of movement and texture.

It was derived from the tartan of Clan Campbell of Argyll in western Scotland used for kilts and plaids, and from the patterned socks worn by Scottish Highlanders since at least the 17th century. It became popular in Great Britain and the USA after World War I.

In knitting, an argyle pattern is accomplished by Intarsia (knitting) explained on Wikipedia as a technique used to make patterns with multiple colors. Fitting together like a jigsaw puzzle.

Still as popular as they were long ago, this vintage knitting pattern uses Super Fingering 3 ply yarn and a pair of No. 1 and No. 3 knitting needles.

You’ll find another pattern for knitting Argyle Socks called Plaid-Mad Diamonds to the Fore! on this earlier post.

Now Dad could go slip sliding around on hard wood floors with these slippers unless you add some type of grips to the bottom, but they will keep his feet warm while sitting on the couch or bed. They may even be a nice project to make for people that are confined to a wheelchair or bed in rehab or assisted living facilities.

These are made with heavy rug yarn and a crochet hook size No. 00 or bulky yarn and a crochet hook size G. Gauge is 4 stitches (sts) = 1 inch.

Instructions are given for a Medium size (8 to 9) 10 inches long or a Large size (9 to 10) 11 inches long.
