Announcement   Wander through WonkyZebra's Vintage Pattern Land, and chose vintage patterns to make something new from something old. Crochet, knitting and sewing patterns that still work!
The patterns are reformatted and remastered from high quality first generation scans made from originals held in WonkyZebra's collection; so they can always be referred to if needed.

We send the PDF Pattern as soon as possible; when we have a payment email from Paypal. This is normally within a 12 hours of purchase ( unless we are asleep - please bear in mind there may be a time difference. :)

Almost all crochet patterns are in *UK English format; but free conversion charts are included and so are WonkyZebra's personal notes on vintage yarns plus pattern tips etc. WZ is very happy to help with advice on the pattern(s).
*Basically for American abbreviations just downsize the stitch name. eg English DC = American SC

About

Take a walk with WonkyZebra, through Vintage Pattern Land.

For a long time WonkyZebra bought patterns and made stuff, and bought patterns and didn't make stuff sometimes...

There is only so much stuff one person can make or want to make, but all those patterns are still sitting there ready to be turned into something unique and lovely. So a couple of years ago WonkyZebra decided to open his little shop, to spread the patterns around a bit.
Although a small fee is involved, he likes to think of it as sharing too because all WonkyZebra pattern sales come with freebies and extras to help you enjoy the patterns.
WonkyZebra is always available for advice about the patterns.
( sometimes I help him when his hooves get in the way..! )

So... he hopes you will find something you like in the shop. just ask if you are looking for something in particular - it may be here, and do look in "sold" items and on the blog and website for more patterns .

SOME MORE INFO AND FAQ

Size and materials info is shown as the 5th image cropped from the pattern;scroll or click listing image to see the different image views.

WonkyZebra hopes you will be able to buy with confidence and that this may answer most of your questions before purchase.
With each sale conversion information regarding vintage and current terms is included. Also a set of personal notes and images of vintage yarns are included to help identify modern substitutes.

WonkyZebra sells emailed high quality PDF first generation scans of original patterns currently held in a lifetime collection; some patterns are restored, some patterns are reformatted completely to present them for better ease of use.
Everything sold in the shop has been read, or even made, and all the patterns are supported with guidance if required.
This is offered freely, to genuine buyers who need help to realize the lovely old patterns into beautiful wearable garments.Please be aware that vintage patterns are often written in styles unlike modern patterns, and will require a good read through before use.
Where I think really necessary, I have annotated the PDF, as someone new to crocheting or knitting may find them confusing. This is why I am always happy to answer queries. Please ask if you have seen patterns and can no longer find them - they can always be relisted for you.

Extra patterns are often sent in these emails as the whole point of starting WonkyZebra was to make these old patterns more widely available.
WonkyZebra would like to do this for free, but sadly even zebras have bills to pay, so the price covers costs, with a very small margin; sometimes we do things for love as well as money.

Shop policies

Last updated on January 1, 2015
PLEASE NOTE;
THIS IS AN EMAILED PDF, NOT AN INSTANT DOWNLOAD LINK
Generally patterns will be sent by PERSONALLY AND DIRECTLY BY EMAIL TO YOU
within 24 hours, but usually within a couple of hours and rarely longer then 12. All patterns are sent personally, so if everyone is asleep or WonkyZebra is out for the day (or evening) there maybe a little wait.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
paypal
Shipping
PATTERN PDF SENT BY DIRECT PERSONAL EMAIL , to the paypal email address.
Please be aware this is in line with Etsy and paypal guidelines, however as a courtesy we will also email to any other email address requested at time of purchase.
Emails are sized to a maximum of 8Mb. Please ensure your email address will receive the attachments.
Refunds and Exchanges
WonkyZebra is very sorry, but he cannot give refunds on emailed pdf - patterns.

Because of the nature of patterns, like most pattern sellers, we do not give refunds once the pattern is sent. However we always try very hard to ensure you will be able to understand and enjoy your pattern and produce something from it.
Sometimes this will be advice and sample photographs, sometimes a similar alternative will be offered, at no extra charge.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please be aware that WonkyZebra patterns are reproduced vintage patterns, while all are checked, it is possible that some instructions might be difficult to understand depending on your native language and pattern reading experience.
WonkyZebra did not write the original patterns and so you may encounter an occasional interpretation or construction difficultly. We will always help, using years of experience, but the original designer is not here with us!
