Retro Christmas Ornaments are so nostalgic. They are quick and fun to crochet and make great gifts that will be cherished for years to come. Every year when the ornaments come out, these crocheted treasures will remind your loved ones of how much you care.
Vintage style crochet patterns just make me happy. I designed this Dancing Mushroom chart years ago, and I finally found the perfect yarn to turn it into a sweet little blanket. The center image panel is surrounded by a thick border in several different stitch patterns which add to the style of this family heirloom to-be.
I am so excited to share the beautiful creations of Pat Kintigh with you. She is quite the artist! Pat makes beautiful yarn-themed accessories out of old silver spoons and other silverware. The moment I saw one of her pieces, I knew I just had to share them with you, they are so unique and beautiful. Pat was gracious enough to agree to an interview, so I’ll let her tell you more!!
Tell us a little about what you do.
I have always loved these Vintage Crochet Aprons. They just make me happy. I’ve wanted to make one for so long, and I finally decide to just go for it. I’ve included some holiday colors for the stripes to make it seasonal, but you can use any colors you would like. Enjoy!
After designing the Skylark Cloche Hat to match the Skylark Scarf, I had a thought about another hat, one with a spiral top instead of rounds, and worked in the back loops only to show off the spirals. This hat came from that thought. Flight got its name because it reminds me of the early woman in aviation. I’m not really sure why, it just does, and it makes me happy. I hope it brings you happiness as well.
