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.
Again, to save and download this pattern simply click on it, it will open in another window and there you can right click to save and print or just right click on the image to save.
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
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.
