Welcome to the VTNS Fanpage Freebie Friday!

From a 1946 Learn to Crochet booklet we’re sharing an easy Single Crochet Hat and Bag.

Earlier we shared a crochet pattern from the same booklet that was done in Rows of Single Crochet. It was a Single Crochet Evening Belt.

This set is done in Rounds of Single Crochet. I’ve included a page of instructions on how to do the rounds of single crochet.

To make these items you’ll need pearl cotton size 5 and a crochet hook No. 4.  You’ll also need some ribbon and 1/2 yard of lining material for the bag.

Some of the abbreviations you’ll need to know are:

sc…………single crochet
Sl st………slip stitch

We’re celebrating Easter today with several vintage Bunny crochet patterns.

This one is so cute, Peter Snuggle Bunny from a 1942 booklet by Lily Crochet Cotton and Yarn called Crochet House.

This bunny uses 2 Skeins of Rug Yarn in the color of your choice, some red Six Strand Floss and two sizes of crochet hooks, H-6 and 3.  You crochet two heads and bodies then sew together and stuff lightly.  Download the PDF pattern here:

 Another pattern from this same booklet is for baby the Peter And Susie Bib.

There’s a yoke, the bib, then the bunnies head and body are crocheted then sewn on.

You can find the pattern for the bib here:

To round out our Bunnies theme is a bunny and chicken Egg Warmer pattern. I’m not too sure how many of us use egg warmers, but they are cute just the same.

If you knit rather than crochet, I found a knitted version of a Bunny Egg Warmer on another blog:

If you are just starting out crocheting, I’ve made the accompanying page of Crochet Terms and Explanation of Stitches PDF available. Also included on this page is Blocking Directions which will probably be helpful if you’d like to make the baby bib:
