Announcement   WonkyZebraBaby shop has lots of vintage baby patterns for you to choose from. All are sent as PDFs by email; often as quick as an Etsy instant download, but a more personal service and much quicker than 'regular' post.

The PDF Pattern email is sent as soon as possible, once a payment email from Etsy or Paypal is received. This is normally within 12 hours of purchase (again, please bear in mind there may be a time difference so WonkyZebra might be asleep here in the UK).
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 directly if needed).

Almost all of the 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.
*Basically for American abbreviations just downsize the stitch name by one name "size". eg English DC = American SC.

WZ IS very happy to help with advice on the pattern(s) you buy; but please bear in mind they were originally written by someone else.

Adult size clothing patterns are in our main WonkyZebra shop; http://WonkyZebra.etsy.com shop..
Toy Patterns are mostly in our Toy Pattern Land shop;
http://ToyPatternLand.etsy.com shop..

Plus lots more can be seen on the WonkyZebra pinterest boards; https://uk.pinterest.com/wonkyzebra

...and any of them can be listed here for sale here if requested or purchased by number on the website.Our website is ;http://www.WonkyZebra.com

This could not be a more helpful, dedicated and generally amazing seller. Dear not if you are a beginner because you will literally receive step by step support! A genuinely passionate and wonderful crocheter who welcomes you with tips, vast knowledge and just honestly a shockingly brilliant amount of speedy help...which for me has gotten conveniently in between settling baby at weird times in the evening! Could not ask For more.

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 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, feel free to ask if you are looking for something in particular - it maybe here, and do look in sold-items and on the blog and website for more views.

Generally patterns will be sent by email within 24 hours but usually within a couple of hours and rarely longer then 12. All emails are sent personally so if the everyone is asleep or WonkyZebra is out for the day (or evening) there maybe a little wait.

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 hopes you will be able to buy with confidence and that this may answer most of your questions before purchase.

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 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 careful study 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 and have withdrawn some patterns that have proved difficult for modern craftspeople, until I have re-written them.
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. (Not the hours of time needed to prepare and administer the shop.)

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 an 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 construction difficultly. We will always help, but the original designer is not here with us to help.
